Crap ***** - as manufacturers moved production offshore or abandoned making tapes altogether, the quality deteriorated. Cases also got cheaper and less immune from daily handling. The end result was more lost or unusable video and more repairs required to the VCRs.

Cheaply **** **** - as "Pro" machines with beefy drive mechanisms were discontinued, replacements were often just "consumer grade" VCRs with the tuners removed and RCA (phono) video connectors replaced by BNCs. Otherwise, the so-called "Pro" machines were no better, and often far more expensive, than their consumer counterparts. I saw no need to pay almost $500 to purchase a "consumer" machine with no tuner and BNC video connectors. 

Lack ** ***** - often VCR manufacturers stopped selling parts soon after discontinuing a model. So toward the end, we were replacing VCRs annually. That cost around $84,000/year. It was one of the arguments we used to put our case to go digital in front of the Tribal Council. That, along with efficiency improvements gained by eliminating tape handling and VCR replacements/repairs.
