Default Re: Sony SL-F30 not unloading

As is typical with Japanese electronics, they find ways to make things simpler and less bulkier that must prove more cost affective too.
For example, look at the HUGE Sanyo VTC9300 and then look at the VTC NX100 (or an even better example from Sanyo would be their 7250 Superbeta model as they got things even slimmer.
Then again look at the Sony Sl8000 and then the SLF30.You can see huge strides made their.
The only negative with the Sony's in that respect is the over use of tiny plastic made parts which crack and break over time. Sanyo somehow managed to avoid this, but kept rubber belt usage which also deteriorates with age but is easier to source thankfully.
