Maxell Standard-Grade Blank VHS Tapes

Written By Juanamac, New York on Saturday, March 01, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I had been looking for blank VHS Tapes which are now very expensive and difficult to find. Eventually after many searches I came across the Crutchfield Business and they had the tapes that I was looking for and familiar with at a good price. The customer care was also efficient and speedy. I would do business with them again.
Pros:
Tapes are of high quality and recording is very easy and clear.
Cons:
none

Written By DtM, El Paso, TX on Tuesday, August 13, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
While it's difficult to get a bad tape these tapes are great for daily recording, which is what I do for everything I watch on TV. Time is valuable and commercials are not, so the Maxells serve my needs.
Pros:
Good record quality and durabilty.
Cons:
They're not free. :)

Wonderful price for these 8 Hour VCR Tapes

Written By VR, Pittsburgh, PA on Sunday, August 11, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
At first I was not happy with these VCR Tapes. The picture and sound was garbled when I tried to play what I recorded. I tried opening a new tape and running it through FF and RW 3X. The Tapes work good after that. I am happy with these tapes and plan to purchase more of them. The Crutchfield Customer Support team was wonderful to deal with.
Pros:
Great price for a hard to get product
Cons:
I do have to FF and RW every tape 3x so it will record well.

Maxwell blank VHS tapes

Written By MarkD, Houston, AL on Monday, February 11, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Your basic blank tape. It does what it is supposed to do. However, you need to FF and RR before first taping to "loosen up" the tape before recording.
Pros:
Good name brand, good tape.
Cons:
It has been in storage for a while and needs to be run through the VCR a few times.

Maxell Standard-Grade VHS Tape

Written By Susan, New Jersey on Thursday, May 13, 2010
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
These are the worst tapes I have ever purchased. We have opened 6 of them so far and 3 are broken they have pieces of plastic floating around inside and one the tape is split.
I do no recommend purchase of these.

The Best VHS Tapes

Written By Gail, Shelby Twp., MI on Sunday, May 03, 2009
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I totally agree with Susan! These are my favorite tapes too. No other brand comes close to the quality and the tape length is a definite plus. I also use them extensively and am afraid VHS tapes will become obsolete. So, I too plead to Maxell to continue making this tape. And thanks to Crutchfield for selling them at the most reasonable price!

This is my favorite tape, for quality and tape length. I hope you will keep making it, Maxell. There are still some of us who use them extensively and are afraid VHS tapes will become obsolete. Please don't let us down.
