Front-Loading VCR <VC-6080>

Sharp released several revolutionary VCRs; for example, a front-loading VCR that made it possible to place the VCR deck beneath a TV, and a VCR incorporating multiple functions thanks to the use of a microcomputer. The company also introduced an affordable VCR in the 150,000-yen price range, and Sharp's popular, user-friendly products helped it capture a double-digit share of the market.
