If you are still one of those people with tons and tons of old VHS tapes, then you have probably been wondering what you can use to get rid of them. They are definitely taking up a lot of space. The other good reason to rid your self of all of those old VHS tapes is that they are on magnetic tape and magnetic tape wears out over time due to environmental factors such as heat and moisture. So, how will you transform those old tapes to a digital format? What do you with all of that junk?
Well, you can get a machine that will not only play those old great home movies but convert them to ultra thin DVD discs so that you will be able to clear some of the clutter and make some more space. And the great thing is that it does not have to be technically challenging at all. In fact, it can be as easy as pushing two buttons.
- You need to realize that there are some VHS DVD combo players that will only play VHS and DVD. To convert VHS to DVD you need a machine that will be able to play the old VHS tapes and record them to DVD as well.
- You need to buy something with some quality. If you really have old videos and they are already showing some signs of deterioration, then you need to treat them right. The experts say that these three VHS to DVD combo recorders are at the top of the list.
- Panasonic DMR-EZ48VK ($240)
- Sony RDR-VX560 ($180)
- Toshiba DVR670 ($250)
- The last thing you need to do is to spend adequate time looking for a good price for the model you choose. I always recommend that you buy your electronics and computer hardware as refurbished models. A refurbished is a repaired model. Subsequently, after being repaired, they are sold for a price that is less than the brand new model.
So, that’s how easy it could be to transfer VHS to DVD. Thank you and, hopefully, this article was helpful to you.
