|The Toshiba V-9680 was an upgrade from the V-9600 model. Its main feature being that
it was a multi-system unit offering PAL / SECAM and NTSC4.43. Like its predecessor the V-9600, it
was a fairly basic looking front loading VCR.
Internally it still relied on a belt drive mechanism and cosmetically it looked like it was built like a brick. Still it did have a multi-event timer which was something it's competitors didn't offer. If you pick up one of these machines today then they are probably worth getting going as spares are still available.
