It is very light so easy to pick up and throw away.
Built down to a price.
The list of missing features of the Philips VR740 Nicam is much bigger than the list of features it actually has. Philips obviously want to get out of the VCR market and this is a good way of doing it.
I can't understand how the picture quality on the video outputs is worse than that on the UHF.
Why do I have to enter the date when I want to use the timer? Can't it assume something here? Why can't I use the numeric keypad to enter times but have to use the up and down arrows? Biggest gripe though is that the display on the video only ever shows the current time meaning that in order to do just about anything with this machine (such as rewind the tape to a specific point) you need to turn on the TV. Even a channel number indicator which I previously thought all VCRs had is missing on this heap of rubbish!
