|V 2000 XP Stereo|
This model really showed what could be achieved with the V2000 format. It is an excellent model by any standards. Like most Philips V2000 VCR's it's a top loader and retains the classic v2000 look incorporating a sloping front panel which contains a numeric keypad for timer/clock setting. It also features the unique operation principles of Philips V2000 machines with no stand-by/record button.
The XL mode ( long play as it is now known ) does not feature fast, slow still or reverse playback modes but gave good picture quality.
The machine retailed in the UK for £ 499 in 1984.
