8 Track tape recorder recommendations?

Looking for a reasonably affordable 8-track (< 1000) tape (cassette or reel format) recording machine.

Have little to no experience with tape, save for a Yamaha MT50 4-track cassette machine.

Don't want/need EQ, Pan, etc.

I got told that the Tascam 238 is the best cassette 8-trk around.

I can also recommend the Tascam TSR-8, I own two of them. They're very stable, high quality machines that work at 15ips. One of them is sitting to the left of the photograph.
