If you have a person in your life with lots of VHS tapes but no VCR then this is the gift for them. The VHS to DVD Converter from Hammacher Schlemmer. It is the perfect gift to give that per son back all of those old VHS movies or home movies! I know that my mama has a whole bookshelf full of VHS tapes and can’t enjoy them because she doesn’t have a VCR anymore.
You rarely see VCR’s anymore at a store. I’m sure you could find them but chances are they are going to stop making them very soon. What about those old home movies of the kids growing up? I bet they would love to be able to preserve them forever on a DVD.
“This device preserves your memories by easily transferring VHS recordings to DVDs. Also a player, this device is ideal for those who have a library of both DVD and VHS home videos. For viewing DVDs, the unit has 1080p upscaling through an HDMI output, maximizing video resolution and audio on an HDMI-compatible television using a single cable. A front DV input allows you to connect a camcorder directly to the device to transfer content directly to a DVD (includes a coaxial input as well as component and composite inputs). An onscreen display guides you through set up. Compatible with most DVD formats – not compatible with Blu-Ray or PAL-formatted media. The system allows MP3, JPEG, and WMA playback, and includes a universal remote control. 4″ H x 17″ W x 10 1/2″ D. (9 1/2 lbs.)”
It’s pretty simple to use and works very well. Not only does it convert the VHS to a DVD but you can also play VHS tapes and DVDs. Sure, you can hire someone to do the transfer for you but why not just do it yourself and not take any chances or losing some precious memories. The DVD’s are going to be the same as the VHS, so if the VHS has static or a poor picture quality then the DVD will also. Make sure you “finalize” the DVD at the end or else it won’t play in other DVD players.
