    I had both. I bought out a video store’s entire inventory of Beta tapes @ 5 cents on the dollar.

    I ran across the guy who ran the Beta-Max project for Sony at the old loser’s Home…He was having “Fizzies” and “Jiffy Pop” with Edsel Ford….

    The only reason Beta-Max lost the race is because Sony refused to license out their patent rights. JVC, on the other hand almost gave away VHS patent rights to anyone who could manufacture at a particular level. A sad thing because Beta-Max was the superior product with sharper video and great sound quality in a more compact format. I truly believe Sony was kicking themselves in the butt for along time after those bad decisions.
