Amazon.com Product Description

Sharp's DV-NC150U combination DVD player and 4-head, hi-fi stereo VCR saves shelf space while enhancing your home theater options. Especially convenient is its ability to record content to a VHS videocassette while simultaneously playing back a crystal-clear DVD, letting you watch a new movie now while taping the news or a favorite program for viewing at a later time. The DV-NC150U is easy to use and was designed with convenience, flexibility, and home-entertainment value in mind. The unit is compatible with a variety of media, including DVD-Video, DVD-RW/R, DVD+RW/R, audio CD, and MP3 music files recorded on CD-R/CD-RW discs.

Whether your living room is currently home to an HDTV or you're merely thinking of "someday," the DV-NC150U stands ready to deliver the full potential of your DVDs. Progressive scanning, referred to as 480p for the number of horizontal lines that compose the video image, creates a picture using twice the scan lines of a conventional DVD picture, giving you higher resolution and sharper images while eliminating nearly all motion artifacts.

For simpler setups, a single composite-video jack channels signals from both the DVD player and the VCR, while the DVD player also offers an S-video connection for compatible TVs. Likewise, the DVD player and VCR share a single set of stereo analog (left/right) RCA audio outs, with DVD offering the flexibility of an additional set of stereo analog jacks and a coaxial digital-audio output for routing both Dolby Digital and DTS 5.1-channel surround-sound signals to a full-featured audio/video receiver.

This model's 4-head design ensures smooth slow-motion play (forward and reverse) and clear still-frame images, and with hi-fi sound the unit's VCR records and plays back stereo audio tracks. If you route the stereo output to an AV receiver, you can even enjoy 4-channel (left, center, right, and monaural surround) Dolby Pro Logic mixes from TV and Dolby-encoded cassettes. Other VCR features include auto rewind, auto repeat (great for trade shows), and auto/manual tracking adjustments.

Rapid Play spins a DVD at slightly faster or slightly slower than normal speed (approximately 1.3x to 0.8x normal speed) while maintaining normal pitch for the soundtrack. This feature works only with Dolby Digital-encoded DVDs. Resume play (DVD/CD) lets you resume playback from the point at which the player last stopped.

Amazon.com Product Description

The VC-H965U from Sharp offers all the convenience of VHS recording and playback--a great way to time-shift TV viewing and share camcorder footage with loved ones, and the only way to enjoy an extensive library of videocassettes. Your camcorder or gaming console plugs right into the VC-H965U'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, while hi-fi sound 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. Sharp Super Picture enhances fine image details, while 19 micron Exact-Track heads ensure the clearest possible picture when recording or viewing in EP (extended-play) mode. With EZ Set Up, all VCR tuner channels and clock are automatically set up for both air and cable channels.

With Skip Search, the VCR zooms forward in 30-second intervals to bypass commercials, while Instant Replay quickly performs reverse scanning in 20-second intervals, then resumes playback. Rewind speed is approximately 54 seconds with a T-120 tape (the speed may be slower for tapes other than T-60, T-90, or T-120). The unit comes with a universal remote control, which operates the VCR and basic functions of various TVs, cable boxes, and some digital satellite receivers. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars No problems - great machine
I had thought at first that this VCR did almost everything well, but was worried because of a dark picture during playback. As it turns out, though, it was the copy protection interfering with the picture on the TV. Because I have a TV/VCR combo, it would darken everything from the new VCR. On other TVs without a built-in VCR, this Sharp model works perfectly.

So it's got a great picture on any normal television, the sound is crisp and in stereo, which is a big plus. And its features are all clearly explained in the directions and easy to figure out on the remote. I was nervous about the backlit display being distracting or too bright, but it's not at all. Automatic tracking is good, but the option to manually track is nice to have. The fast rewind and fast forward are good about being careful with the tapes and slows them before stopping or playing them.

This Sharp model was the clear winner in my shopping research, and my only complaint in the first place was the dark playback - but upon discovering that the problem doesn't lie with this VCR, I would recommend this unit to anyone interested in a good, solid, quality, and featured-packed VCR for a reasonable price.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great VCR, Great Price
It was time to replace my old Sanyo VCR, and I went on the hunt for a new one. I read many reviews, compared prices, ratings, features, and finally settled on this particular Sharp VCR. All I can say it I love it so far.

It is light, at least, lighter than my other. It rewinds super fast, but slows down before reaching the end of the tape which prevents it from getting yanked apart. It automatically sets the time (what a time saver too). It does an automatic channel scan and time set the first time you turn it on.

The one thing that pleases me more than anything is it plays tapes perfectly that wouldn't play correctly on my other VCRs. Especially EP recorded tapes, and older previous rental videos that I could get the tracking to work. Another thing I really like is the double fast forward and double rewind you can use when you're actually watching the tape.

If you are going to buy a new VCR, definitely do research into what features you want, price ranges, etc. But keep this one in mind. It's a great VCR, and it is priced well too!

5-0 out of 5 stars LOVE THIS VCR!!!
This is a great VCR. I have had it for a few months and I had the previous version for several years. I probably use the VCR for recording or playing something two or three times a day. It has a super fast rewind, which is fantastic (for when you are trying to make it to Blockbuster by noon).

I just wanted to write a review to say that there is a way to reset the counter, but clearly people have trouble figuring out how to do it. It is rather simple, you just make the display show the counter (by pressing the display button the the remote) and then you press the cancel button (on the remote) and it resets the counter to 00:00:00.

Another thing, I noticed when I was reading deciding which VCR to buy that a reviewer or two said something about this not having a manual and I was very concerned by this. Well, it's not true at all. This VCR DOES come with a manual, when you buy it new. I would guess that some others buy it used or from other sellers, and well, at that point, it's really their own responsibility to make sure it includes a manual. Also, when I spoke with Sharp, and if you have proof of valid purchase of the machine, they will send a new manual.

All in all, this is a truly excellent VCR, especially for the price. I have had more expensive VCRs that just have not been as dependable, they broke down much sooner, something happens with the clarity of the picture, or a problem starts to develop with the rewind or fast forward. I have had no problems with this VCR or its previous version. I would highly recommend this for anyone who is looking to save a little money, but wants a good, dependable machine.

5-0 out of 5 stars A good no-nonsense, dependable quality machine.
We've now had this Sharp VCR for about 4 months now. The Sharp VC-H965U 4-head VCR is a good no-nonsense, dependable quality machine. I would NEVER have thought when I had to replace my Panasonic VCR (after just two years) that it would be so difficult to find a good quality VCR. Apparently it is getting harder and harder to find well-engineered ones, even those made by the more well-known manufacturers. I had always been told about Panasonic's quality in regards to its VCRs, and how "JVC had invented the VCR tape", and therefore I reasoned that my first Panasonic which died prematurely must have just been a lemon, or something of a fluke. So I (unfortunately) bought yet another Panasonic. After buying it, we had to return it within a week since it mistracked every tape I put into it almost immediately out of the box. Same with a "super-high quality" JVC "S-VCR"; I didn't even have it for 24 hours before I saw permanent tracking lines on everything I taped & watched. (Those tapes were forever damaged by that VCR and my second Panasonic.) After trying a VCR/DVD combo which ALSO didn't work properly, I purchased this Sharp unit and a Sanyo VCR hoping that ONE of them just might work. To our surprise, both units work flawlessly, were easy to program, and played all of our older tapes without any problems. And the price was less than half the price of the JVC and Panasonic units.
This VCR is not by any means perfect, but it is a very, very good and a safe bet. As someone here wrote, it does sound a little louder during the rewind function than some VCRs, but it is not unreasonable to live with. There is a slight problem in programming cable stations where the picture went out after the process, if you happen to have a live signal on channel 3, but the manual does address this. And the very polite customer service staff walked me through the problem after this first happened when I used the Auto-set feature. (This contrasts dramatically with JVCs "Customer service number" which was just a voicemail box, with no option to even leave a message) And the Hi-Fi recorded sound on this VCR is very clean. When viewed on my digital set, and the recorded picture is also clear, though an improvement it could use is that the Sharp is just a tad darker in the shadow areas than my two Sanyo VCRs. However, all around it is a solid performer, and exceptionally easy & reliable to program your favorite shows. I would buy another in a minute. Yet another winner from Sharp, whom I've come to respect more over the years...

4-0 out of 5 stars Good points, bad points
Good points: great picture and great sound. That is what you buy a VCR for. Bad points: the motor is very loud (to me, but my wife insisted it was acceptable so I did not return it). A minor (to me) inconvenience is the remote--it does not work with my brand of T.V., and two universal remotes would not work the program function of the VCR; so when we program this one we use the original remote and use a universal remote for all other functions. But you don't buy a VCR for its remote. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars It worked for a little while
I have owned many VCRs, this one worked for almost 2 months.
It was only used in a bedroom, never used to record only play.
for some reason now the picture does not project clear. The sound comes through but the picture is fuzzy. Its not the tracking or channel. Cannot figure out the problem. I have tried to disconnect and reconnect but still the same results. I would like to return this but no longer have the box.

5-0 out of 5 stars Good basic VCR
No stereo, but a high-quality VCR. Makes a great 2nd or 3rd VCR for your home.

3-0 out of 5 stars Has nice features
Although the vhs pales in comparisson with dvd, this vcr has some nice features. I really enjoyed not having to set the clock on my VCR and when the power went out, I didn't have to reset it. Also, the commercial skip is a nice perk. ... Read more

The affordable VC-A565U uses a four-head design that ensures smooth slow-motion play (forward and reverse) and clear still-frame images. Front-panel audio/video inputs (composite-video, monaural RCA audio) accommodate a camcorder, gaming console, or second VCR, while Sharp's Super Picture feature enhances fine image details (especially on older tapes) and 19-micron Exact-Track heads ensure the clearest possible picture when recording or viewing in EP (extended-play) mode.

With EZ Set Up, all VCR tuner channels and clock are automatically set up for both air and cable channels. You can bypass previews and commercials with Skip Search, in which the VCR zooms forward in 30 second intervals. Did you miss a critical line of dialog? Instant Replay quickly performs reverse scanning in 20 second intervals, then resumes playback. The unit's rear panel features standard RF and composite-video input/output with monaural RCA audio input and output.

If you'll be using the set at a trade show, its all-repeat function will come in especially handy, rewinding and replaying each tape as soon as it ends. Other features include auto head cleaner, skip search/instant replay, and Sharp Super Quasi Playback, which displays S-VHS cassettes, if only in standard VHS resolution.

The unit comes with a universal remote that operates the VCR and basic functions of many TVs, cable boxes, and some digital satellite receivers. Rewind speed is approximately 54 seconds with a T-120 tape (the speed may be slower for tapes other than T-60, T-90 or T-120).
