I recieved this Sylvania TV/VCR combo unit as a gift two years ago. It has held up well beyond my expectations. It is a very convenient size. Right now I have it sitting on a dresser in the bedroom. I have also used it in the kitchen to watch a movie on VHS tape while I cook. It has some cool features too. I especially like the one called "sleep timer". I use this feature when I am going to sleep at night. I turn on the channed that I want to see, push the sleep timer button, set it for 30 minutes, 1 hour, 1 hour 30 minutes or 2 hours. The television will automatically shut itself off at that time. I like to fall asleep with the television on and this way I don't have to get back up and turn off the television. No wasting electricity leaving it on all night. It's a great little unit and I would highly recommend this for a bedroom or kitchen.
