http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=1370196663This could be a good deal. I don't need anything like this, though. Anyone know who this "Howiecat" charecter is? I hope he's not a snail ____@技 or an agent thereof ____@技 -"howiecat, I hereby dispatch you to go and collect all those tasty betas that we may jack up the prices and resell them to the unwitting masses"

The SL-HF750 out on a picnic picture is greatly improved with the introduction of the "Snailings" crawling all upon the poor unit. If I was to list that Beta, on Ebay INC, with the Snalings crawling all over upon it, would that mean I could get at least $2,000 US for it? Ahhh.. the wonders of Adobe. Andy

No way, Sean! If I take the little top cover off the 420, something just awful will happen, and the unit will tell me, in it's best Mom voice, "What did I tell you? WHAT--DID--I--TELL--YOU??" :) Actually, it won't come off. You pull on it and it won't lift. I have to pop the cover off one of these days to check out a little noise during threading, and I'll let you know what happens. Stay tuned...

CAN the lid be removed? have you ever taken the cover off the whole thing just to see what's under there? I would be interested to know...

Nope. Just the tuner's been removed. It even has a timer for recording. Very peculiar unit. It responds to the basic commands from my RMT-124; I cannot determine whether or what remote is supposed to come with it, but I assume if the 312 isn't exactly the one, it's probably the closest you can get next to that. Amusingly, by the way, the little lid on top of the unit over where you would tune channels on, say, a 2300, has a sticker on it saying it cannot be removed.

I didn't know the SLO-420 could recieve infra-red remote control, I thought that feature was removed for industrial application...

There was a 2500 with a remote that looked to be in great shape that went for just $52 last weekend. I got caught in a conversation and missed a chance to check on it late. I would have grabbed it for sure. Of course, I don't need it, but at that price I can't, as they say, afford *not* to buy! $212 could have gotten the buyer that nice SL-700 that recently ended. I guess it's just that something about a "new" unit. HOWEVER, I always wonder how "new," "like new" and "mint" they really are, or can be, without a remote or a manual.

Tip o' the hat to Olive. It is an SLO-420, not a -340. No idea why (or how) I could get those two confused, but I do that a lot.

By the way that SL-2500 went for a whopping $212 bux! http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=1368286008

Also there's an AG-400 tape changer available that will work for the SL-2500, SL-2700, SL-2710 and SLO-420

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=1369840722

Still at $20 bux...

nice to see it go to someone other then the gastropods...

Don't you mean SLO-420? The SLO-340 is the Texas Walkman X-I 'portable' recorder.

Question for you SL-HF750 folks. I just got one, and find that the tape transport buttons, both on the remote and on the panel, Record in particular, seem slow to respond compared to other VCR's I have owned. I have a lot to learn yet about this unit, but I am wondering if anyone else has noticed this.

I had to grab that RMT-312 for my SLO-340. I was surprised that my Zenith VR9800 remote did not operate the swing search on the SLO. I hope the 312 does. I am also surprised that the RMT-312 wasn't snapped up by whomever bought that "brand new" SL-2500 that ended yesterday or today. I'm going right now to find out what ghastly price that one went for.

And I think you can also use that remote on this Zenith/Sony OEM Beta http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=1370498169

Too bad the flipper door is missing....

See how the Snail is a bad influence on this optimistic Beta seller...

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=1370491663

A low end mono NEC Beta with a missing flipper door. Start bid is $15, BIN price is $250 and there's a reserve.

As Dr. Evil would say; "Ri-i-ight"...
