A BVH-2000 in good condition is a great recorder if you have very deep pockets and have the skills and equipment to keep running. It is still, even if perfect, not capable of even DV quality, and is composite only. What would you actually do with it? You need at least 3 and a controller and mixer to do even a simple edit with a dissolve! Head wear means constant maintenance and spare parts are amazingly expensive. As a curiosity, then why not if you have space – but you can compare 35 year old technology. Remember that back when these were being used, home video machines wee only just emerging and not ever home had one. Also put up loads of low shelves – a full reel of tape weighs more than the current guidelines for lifting safely!
