    Happy viewer

    My VCR broke so I searched online and found Porter Electronics. It seemed like a nice family run operation. I wanted to view some old videos and was so happy to be able to view my wedding video with my daughters. Thank you for making my day! The machine came in good condition with a nice remote. The packing was very neat and they even included instructions. I would recommend this company!!

    Very good VCR with high quality refurbishment, especially for cassettes recorded on a Sony camera.

    Sony VCR refurbished

    Posted by Scott on 15th Feb 2023

    Well, aside from the screw that was rolling around inside that came out easy it has been working just fine. Although I have only played, rewound and FF some tapes it appears like new, I like it and I'm sure it will be fine.

    Arrived in good working order.

    For many years, my old Sony VHS VCR had been dying. It finally gave up the ghost immediately after I watched my tape of Disney's "Sleeping Beauty," with the tape jammed inside, undamaged but unable to eject. Not having a working VCR was not an option: too much of my library is on VHS tape. Repair would not have been cost-effective, and neither would any of the tiny handful of new VHS VCRs still on the market. The only cost-effective solution was a refurbished unit, and I have a strong preference for Sony. Porter Electronics was able to supply a replacement, at as good a price as I've seen. While it is certainly not a brand-new unit, and is a simpler model, it is in perfect working order. All in all, my decision to go with Porter, and with this particular unit, was an excellent one.
