    DVD and Bluray rewind so much faster.

    Quoted from Magic_Mike:

    How did you make the transfers compatible for all NTSC players?
    I can't find a good player to guarantee this.

    Mike, using a TBC is the best way to capture VHS footage onto a DVD or a computer. A TBC (Time Base Corrector) will stabilize all NTSC signals. It will also remove the copy protection from VHS tapes. Because of HDTV, TBCs are dirt cheap now. Or just send me your tapes, I own a Video Editing Service - http://www.jumping-box.com/

    Old Laser Discs and even Video Discs <read: Bally's Astron Belt> rewound pretty quick as well.

    I think it's hysterical that your ordered any video in this day and age and it showed up on VHS! That is the funniest thing I have heard all week!

    I have a Panasonic Blu-ray/VHS combo player.

    Boy though, VHS looks terrible on modern 60" TV's

    I sent a slightly drunken email to Bay Area and got a return postage paid label and a phone call the next day. I really wasn't that worried about the $9, more shocked that they still sold the VHS. Anyway, thumbs up to BAA.
