So why even consider spending your hard-earned money on a digital enhancement that starts at $399? Because if you watch a lot of TV, it will change your life. If you have to choose, I'd even recommend these new gadgets over a DVD.
FROM THURSDAY, JUNE 29, 2000 The old rule used to be, "If ain't broke, don't fix it." The VCR, introduced back in the '70s, seems to fill the bill. Even though DVDs offer better movie playback, for recording TV you can't beat the price, often less than $100, and most of us have made our peace with the blinking clock that never seems worth figuring out how to set.
