Bought my first VCR in 1987.  I still have one.  It's not connected to my tv (although it could be), but when I switched to DVD I decided not to replace all my movies--so I copied them onto DVD instead.  They're still watchable, if not flawless.

But what to do with all those VHS tapes, some of which are so old they contain video of Army beating Navy in football?  They're in a box in an out of the way place in the garage.  I don't want someone to see all these home-burned DVDs and think I illegally downloaded the movies or something; no, I'm keeping the tapes.

So what prompted me to talk about VHS?  This article:
Funai Electric, the last company known to make VCRs, is ceasing production.
