Apex DT250


The Apex DT250 digital TV tuner offers more connectivity than its competitionincluding a smart antenna input that could be useful in low-reception areas.

More connectivity options than in rival models. Easy to set up. Includes smart antenna input. Less expensive than some competitors.

Menus are easy to navigate, but not easy on the eyes.

Doesn't last


Ours has broken 6 months after purchase. It won't even turn on anymore and makes a horrible noise when you plug it in. When it was working, it was acceptable. The remote never worked very well even when it was brand new. Buy another brand.
