Panasonic Nv-fs200 / Panasonic Ag-1980 / Panasonic Ag-4700 / Panasonic Nv-hs1000 - Which one is the best

Hello everyone.

Before spending my money, I decided to enter this forum to consult on the following models vcr mentioned in the title of this post. As we know all know such models, but they are more of the same brand and the same line, there will be differences that highlights one over the other and that is what I come to consult on this occasion.

According to his criterion: Of the models mentioned which is the best and why? It is known that all bring tbc built-definition picture and others. But they consider that stands out above the others? I want to buy some model that allows me to play my vhs tapes with good quality and image definition, the image is stable to tapes with some deterioration by time, in VCR standard fail to be seen clearly.

You judge and decide which is best of the four.

You're comparing NTSC and PAL machines. The AG-1980 is a prime NTSC SVHS player with builtin line tbc.

The others are PAL players. The fs1000 (a PAL version of the AG-1980) and AG-4700 are almost identical, SVHS with line tbc. Those two are said to have a sharper picture (which means they'll pick up more tape noise), the 1000/4700 are said to be more stable at playing crummy tapes than the fs200. But it all depends on the condition of the players. If the 1000 or 4700 are in sad shape you're better off with a 200 in good condition, and vice versa.
