I mean these prices are really CHEAP. I bought 25 movies and all of them were in great condition, and played well.

good to see there is still betamax supporters out there. the format should have taken on and should never have lost to an inferior format such as vhs. does anyone know of a format that is actually worse than vhs, because i can't think of one. even sony's video 8 (nicknamed beta's revenge)which uses a tape half the width of vhs is still technical

the format might have died in 2002, but the spirit lives on. i have many machines, and will keep them working for as long as i can, i travel long disstances to pick up machines won on E-Bay, and sometimes have to manufacture my own parts from anything i can. and on the brighter side, vhs is finaly dead. not before time for the seccond rate system.
