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.

Work decently for 4 months

Pix quality good. Box made of metal and sturdy. Electronic PC board and components appeared well laid out and engineered. It worked well from my outdoor antenna. No problems the 1st year, Price with coupon was low

Short life span of my unit. Remote control a bit unwieldy, a bit difficult to aim remote beam. Numbers on remote wore off quickly

Leave this product in the store.

 

I should have known better. Talk about irony. Wile E. Coyote used "ACME" products and those of us who watched cartoons know the results. I purchased a product named "APEX" and it turned out to be just as shoddy. I purchased two digital converters last...

That they've been allowed to continue to produce this shoddy product
