No, sorry, I got a bit of a better offer... To be honest $10 is just a little low, I'll be honest I was expecting $20-$45... not very bad especially when you consider Sony sells them for $215. You can still buy all the cables you need cheaply and the manual too.

It's funny to note that a high end (and therefore expensive) machine (HF900) was the most popular among beta users while VHS finally won a war because of cheapness.

This tells long about how beta enthusiasts prefer quality products !

SL-HF-900 is a very nice machine, it's also the most common machine in the world so it's a good choice from a parts standpoint. You can use to take an NTSC signal... I suppose you can also use it with a standards converter of any sort to take PAL video if that works but I'm not sure... Also I think standards converters that really work are expensive... SL-HF-900 can also be turbocharged (BIs recording) if you know something about electronics...

Hello all. I am thinking of buying a decent (hopefull) NTSC Beta for use in England. Its getting very hard to find beta with all the bells and whistles etc here as they only made one - SLHF950. As my Sony NX1 TV can accept PAL and NTSC picture I was wondering If I could use the NTSC machine to back up my region1 DVDs and NTSC laserdiscs - would there be any other way of using the machine? - also any ideas on a decent one - I am checking ebay (those sellers willing to post to UK) and the SLHF900 looks a decent machine.

My theory (not to disparage any elses or anything) is that we can waste time lamenting how bad these people are or we can work around them and warn people about them... and not buy from them. What we want, we'll find at reasonable prices or take our business elsewhere... there are all kinds of people on Ebay, some are bad and some are not, like the time I bought an SL-2001, RM-E100V, AC-220, and cables for $26, or an SL-HF-900 for $80, or so on...

You are right. I don't get the picture. I have a hard time understanding your saying. For example, I just don't seem to find out what your first computer has to do in this story.

I think you should refrain from using the term "idiot" to describe someone who doesn't share your point of view.

That said, I feel the heat rising and I think it would be better to stop this unnecessary conversation before things get worse.

OLIVE, seems to be a whole ring of them in Canada, Betagoodsnail seems to be in the circle, but I cant seem to connect the dots. They all seem to bid each other auction up or put a 0 with glasses to bid at the end if the auction doesn't meet the price they want. Then the next day the same auction is back on again .. Very strange.. The more I learn about buying betas on ebay the worse it gets.. 8-)....Tom
