Don't miss a minute of your favorite shows or tapes. Sony's SLV-N71 is packed with convenience features designed to simplify recording and viewing, from one-month, eight-event advance programming to Commercial Pass. Your camcorder or gaming console plugs right into the SLV-N71's front panel for hassle-free connections.
This model's four-head design ensures smooth slow-motion play (forward and reverse) and clear still-frame images, and with hi-fi sound the unit records and plays back stereo audio tracks. If you route the stereo output to an AV receiver, you can even enjoy four-channel (left, center, right, and monaural surround) Dolby Pro Logic mixes from TV and Dolby-encoded cassettes. The SLV-N71's dual-azimuth construction uses two pairs of recording heads rather than one, each optimized for a specific mode (one for SP recording, the other for EP), while 19-micron heads deliver the clearest possible picture when recording or viewing in EP (extended-play) mode.
For setup, a single button calls up an onscreen menu to guide you through VCR setup, including parameters for features like menu language select, satellite receiver or cable-box control setup, and auto tuner presets. The VCR automatically marks the tape with an index signal at the point where each recording begins so you can easily scan back to the start of a recording using these signals as a reference.
The VCR's advanced Quick-set timer dial makes it easy to program the timer up to one month in advance. Press the dial once to activate the timer, then turn the knob to set it. You can adjust start and stop times in one minute increments. VCR Plus+ further simplifies programming, as it lets you set the VCR to record programs based on common PlusCode numbers found in the TV listings of over 600 newspapers and TV Guide--no more worrying about start and end times for your most frequently recorded shows.
Commercial Pass makes it easier than ever to zip past commercials and unwanted "coming attractions." Press the button once to go into high-speed picture search; press it again and the VCR stops, rewinds a few seconds so you won't miss any of your movie, then plays. Adaptive Picture Control (APC) tests each tape and adjusts recording parameters for the best performance and adjusts playback for an ideal balance between picture sharpness and low video noise.
ChildLoc circuitry keeps small hands from going where only tapes belong. With the handy one-hour timer back-up, the VCR saves timer data for up to one hour in the event of a power loss. The unit comes with a multi-brand TV/VCR remote control.

But, I wanted to write this review, because if you are like me and still have analog television and watch VHS movies
this is the easiest VCR to purchase and hook up.
The VCR came to my door, I took it out of the box, plugged it to my coaxial F plug on my old television set, which
by the way, is the only plug I have on the TV set to plug into a VCR and I was able to start watching movies right away.
No problems, no hassles, no having to read the entire manual just to understand how to hook the VCR up.
A Wonderful piece of equipment, worked right out of the box, would highly speak to all that want a VCR to buy this product
I do have to say if you have cable, it is just as easy to hook up. This VCR will hook up to both RCA plugs, or just your
standard old time coaxial F plug.
This is all you have to mess with to hook to your VCR and to your television set and it is that easy.
The Sony VCR is the easiest VCR on the market to use, it is heavy and not made of plastic and it is a very simple VCR.
No fancy bells or whistles. My advice is, if you want something more advanced, chose something different. Or is you are very picky, do not order this VCR, you need a new model.
This VCR is an older model that is solidly built, but nothing fancy, which is my kind of VCR.
I bought this Sony for it's reputation and I can honestly say: It is well deserved!
The picture quality is great but what is really fantastic, is the fact that it is so easy to operate. If you are like me and you hate reading complicated manuals just to set the VCR you will love this one. The controls are simple and anyone can understand them within minutes. Pre-setting the VCR to start recording has never been easier. One of the niftiest features is that the VCR will set it's own clock by the signal it receives through the cable. Living in an area that endures frequent power outages this is one important feature.
At this price level one can't beat the value.
