|I've always thought recording length was the first consideration for the plebians…. I went with Beta for my first unit, I put up a 9 ft used satellite dish, for cheap, 24 hr free content in '84...and bgt a used Beta with 50+ tapes, for v.v.cheap, *$50) as that person wanted the 2 hr format of VHS...I upgraded to Super Beta, for even better quality, for video & music..it was cheap by then..later, also bought Super VHS, also used & cheap.|
Eventually, went to DVD
For now, Tesla is winning the 'recording time' aka 'Range War' as well as superior performance...
As for legacy cos going BK...well, time will tell, but in the foreseeable future, most likely, not....certainly not all of them.
