Combination units vs. VCRs

I'm having trouble with a Panasonic monitor/VCR combination unit,
specifically the AG-513 model. Another one of these bit the dust some time ago;
we also have the AG-513b models (two) in our media library. Frankly, I'm not
really impressed with their performance, either.

Overall, would you recommend combination units over using a separate TV
hooked up to a VCR? If you do prefer the combination units, is there a brand you'd recommend?
and model you'd recommend over others? And if you prefer to simply hook up TV
monitors to VCRs, is there a brand and model of VCR that you'd recommend over
others? I think some money is opening up in our budget, so I'd really like to
order something substantial that would last a good long while. Any tips you can
offer would be much appreciated. Thank you.
