Beta- simply Better
I was too young to buy equipment when Beta and VHS came out in 1976,
I was 3 at the time and dad bought our first VCR in 1980 which was
VHS but even though I buy movies in VHS still and have heaps of machines,
my pride and joy is the Sony C6 which I picked up from a guy last year
for $50 bucks and he had just had it serviced. The heads were still in
top nick and it was a real bargain. Now, my video shed is the dumping
ground for a format which the common person sees as obsolete and hopeless.
I was given 400 beta movies and I scouted second hand shops for original
movies and managed to get heaps for no more than $2 bucks each.
So now if someone wants a movie that I have on beta, I can transfer it
to VHS for them with no quality loss and I reckon that watching a movie
on BETA is much more enjoyable than on VHS.
I have been given heaps of Sanyo models but they keep breaking down,
I always wanted a sony and now I have got one.
