Philips released the N1500 in 1972. This video cassette recorder was fairly large and used half-inch tapes, mounted on co-axial reels. Maximum recording time was a respectable 60 minutes. Its relatively high price tag ($1,249.52) ultimately led to its demise — replaced by the N1502 in 1975, which featured a digital timer. Click here for more pictures.
