The Panasonic AY-DV83PQUS Mini DV Pro Cassette uses AME (Advanced Magnetic Evaporation) technology to provide high signal output and consistent durability and reliability in a recordable videocassette. It has a rugged ABS resin shell that prevents warp damage and cassette housing damage. An anti-static treated cassette lid repels dust, debris, and contaminants, minimizing dropouts. The cassette case is molded from a resin that won't break, even if dropped. The 2-way lid construction lets you easily extract the tape with one hand, even while shooting.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pro Tapes These Pro Quality tapes are a little bit pricier than some of the other tapes out there. But you recieve an hour and 20 minutes, which is nice if you need a little leverage to shoot something about an hour long with two cameras, but don't have an extra man available for the other camera. They are also much more durable, in case you're shooting something for a client that absolutely can not get damaged. If you're just shooting something personal, and you'll be able to man the camera yourself, you may want to go with a cheaper tape. But for the times that you really need it, PQ tapes are nice.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reliable Quality I use the Panasonic Pro tapes for weddings, dance recitals and graduation ceremonies. I have been operating a video business for almost 7 years now and from day one I have used nothing but the Panasonic Pro tapes. There is nothing bad to write about the tapes because I have never had a problem. I do not reuse tapes so I can not attest to the quality of the tapes if you tape over something that you have already recorded. Each tape manufacturer uses there own type of tape lubricant, so it is important for the life of the heads in your camera to stick with the same brand. I picked the Panasonic based on a recommendation from another video professional. I'm glad I listened and followed his advice.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tape for the Panasonic DVX-100B I purchased the AY-DV83PQUS Mini-DV Pro tape for my Panasonic DVX-100B camcorder (which I previously purchased through B&H) and it displayed the professional quality I was looking for. Living in Orange County, CA it is often difficult to find a pro quality mini-DV tape, unless you want to drive out to LA. Even more difficult to find one that is 80+ minutes in length. The tape even offered no problems or interruptions when I output my edited Avid content from my computer back to the tape in the camera... have yet to cause a single problem when being used in the field.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I totally endorse this proguct I particularly like pro miniDV 83 min tape because I have one of those Sony professional HDV cameras that load from the bottom, so now I don't get the jitters when it's closing in on the hour and have to reload. 83 mins is enough time for any event that i cover, plus you have the added quality. Good product.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Test before using for critical recording For the past 11 years I have used Fuji DVC tapes and never had any problems with them. Since Fuji now stopped making these tapes, I recently purchased Panasonic DVM83POUS to use in making stage recordings. In my first usage last night, I had numerous dropouts in the two tapes I used during a critical stage recording. If you purchase a box, test one of the tapes first to get a feel for the quality of that tape batch before you use it for event recording where there may not be any do-overs.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good replacement for AY-DVM83PQ We were using the Panasonic AY-DVM83PQ tapes before they were discontinued to record our church services and for indoor and outdoor video shoots. We chose this as a replacement and so far we've not had any problems with the tapes. Good audio and video quality and no dropouts. The price is a bit higher, but other than that we have no complaints. A good general purpose mini DV tape.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional product. The AY-DV83PQUS tapes are heads and shoulders above other tapes and provide excellent color and practically zero dropouts and errors. In my 20+ years of videoing everything from ball games to weddings I have come to rely exclusively on these since a 60 minute tape rarely is enough recording time. Thanks to B&H for having great deals on these and other products. Jim W.
