Philips V2000

January 10th, 2011

It was believed that using a VCR to rewind your VHS tapes could lead to kinks in the tape, which would corrupt playback.
VHS tape rewinder machines were marketed as a safe alternative, to preserve the integrity of those beloved VHS tapes you planned on watching and re-watching.
However some VHS tape rewinder brands suffered from frequent abrupt stops, which occasionally lead to tape and/or film damage, rendering their entire existence almost as idiotic as my large collection of VHS tape rewinders.

Fun Fact: You can store up to 5 GB of computer information on VHS tapes using a number of different systems, such as those developed by American companies Corvus and Alpha Microsystems. ArVid was also widely used in Russia, while Backer was popular in England.

Fun Experiment: Back up your computer porn on top of your old VHS porn tapes. New and old porn meet in a hairy/shaved hi/lo def obsolete/weirdly-still-relevant fuck format.

Gonna go watch my JVC VHS of JCVD (bootlegged, don’t tell him or he’ll legboot me).
