1 That- and a VHS set up was far less expensive. The makers of Betamax thought that Americans would choose picture quality over price. They gambled- and they lost. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on February 5, 2010, 4:00 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 While Beta was superior, VHS scored with sports fans for the ability to record four hours on standard T-120, enough for one Football game. -- Submitted By: (scatcatpdx) on August 11, 2009, 12:25 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 Beta was a technically superior format but the short recording times was it's Achilles Heel. -- Submitted By: (BrewMaster) on August 3, 2009, 8:22 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
