Availability of DVD Recorders...

I notice that Philips DVD/VHS recorders are still available in the Canadian stores but not in the USA ones.  Will these units soon disappear in Canada also?  They seem to be the only ones sold, undoubtedly made by Funai......

Re: Availability of DVD Recorders...

Welcome to the Best Buy Community Plug-in forum @shureman Smiley Happy

That's a good question.

I would summize that the inventory issue with the Philips DVD/VHS recorder is greatly dependant on supply and demand issues.

In many cases, the Customer Service associates may be able to make "special orders" for clients, when they require an item that is still available by the manufacturer, that is not carried in normal inventory.

As VHS demand and use is dwindeling, along with the ability to find VHS tape, I would imagine that this item may be discontinued in the future by most stores.
