Yeah; my wife keeps sayin' I should retire my PS2 Model 50
But it IS faster than my old XT.
Which is faster yet than my Atari 130 XE.
I'd have gone with an Atari ST with the new Motorola chip, but Charlie Chaplin with his stack of old software on 7.5" floppies talked me out of my Beta-esq silliness!
Actually I felt that a better PQ outweighed a bit longer recording time; but that's another story!(I pitched out my old Sony Beta machine, with the wired remote, just last year when we moved, and I realized that the "drop-outs" far outweighed the recorded data
on the old, well worn tapes!)
