Well, I got it for only $80 so I couldn't resist the temptation and bought it... and I probably won't regret it! To me, this unit actually looks like brand new inside with no signs of wear at all. Even the "auto-head cleaning roller" is perfectly white and looks like new. I see no signs of bad capacitors (yet) either. It works like a charm. I really didn't belive VCR's in this excellent condition existed in year 2015
I've been using it for 2 days now and I've not yet experienced "head clogs" on any of my tapes!
Just adding some pictures of my "new" unit
Sorry for the mess
Everything looks nice and clean inside. I don't think the cover has ever been removed before.
Heads and "auto-head cleaning roller" looks good.
Even the pinch roller looks pretty good
Don't think I've ever seen such a bright white and clean "auto-head cleaning roller" before
