I am looking to convert my old VHS home movies into digital format. I am using a black magic intensity shuttle thunderbolt and I also have a working panasonic ag1970 s-vcr and a non-working ag1980 s-vcr. Ive read that the ag1980 is superior to the ag1970 but im wondering how much of a difference there truly is between the two.
I guess I could get the ag1980 repaired. But I am not sure if it would be worth my time and money if the visible difference is very small.
Has anyone done a side by side test?
