The VBS-7000 was marketed under the Fisher brand name. Compared to the comparable Sanyo model it was much more up-market. This VCR is a clone of the Sanyo VTC 9300. In common with all Sanyo VCR's it claims to be a Betacord VCR not a Betamax. Betacord was Sanyo's name for the Betamax format.

The interesting thing to note these days is that it had a liquid crystal display (LCD) for the tape counter and clock.
