    I had a Furgy 3V23 vcr, it lasted nearly 18 years until the repair bills made it uneconomical, I then bought a french S-vcr which jammed up continuously and eventually the main processor chip packed up and they didn't make it anymore, I then gave up with casstte recorders and and used HD recorders which were a pain at first, they have been ok for the the last 10 years.

    We had the video2000 when I was a kid, like most people we use to rent it. You could record on both sides of the tape.

    Exactly that one.

    After a while though it would occasionally record with no sound

    I had a Samsung 5000 multi standard VCR. It was great hooking up to satellite tv, able to sort out PAL, NTSC and Secam broadcasts, probably the best one I had.
