I have a Panasonic AG 1980 that I recently got. The machine loads properly, the image is free of any defects. The unit also works well in rewind/fast foward in play mode. However, the display is a little bit dim, and when rewinding/fast forwarding in stop mode, the machine starts to make a loud screeching noise after a bit. Cosmetically, the machine is in great condition with usual scuffs, etc. I'm open to any offers you might make, so PM me.
Also, some machines I'm intersted in for trades are: JVC BR S378U, JVC HR S5800U, JVC HR S7500U, JVC HM DH5U, JVC SR W5U, JVC SR W7U, JVC HR S9600U, JVC HR S9800U,
Note: Will be well packaged an shipped via UPS ground.
