Save your money and buy something else


I bought this DVD player since it was a great price for a progressive scan DVD player. I was planning to get a digital TV later on but wanted to wait for the prices to drop. So I just played my DVDs happily on a projection TV and was satisfied with the...

Plays DVDs easily, great picture, remote control easy to use.

Broke in 8 months, some DVDs did not play properly (subtitles missing).

Apex can't make TV's but they can make DVD Players


At my house our first DVD player was a Sony and it constantly had trouble reading discs and freezing up. My dad was very angry about it, but he didn't want to go out and buy another DVD player which might have the same problem. I got him this Apex...

It is a true progressive scan DVD player at a bargain price.

It doesn't have a zoom feature.

Great Apex DVD Player


This is a great DVD Player. I really don't understand all you people that say its confusing and hard to use. Yeah, maybe its hard to use for lazy idiots that have no clue how to read the manual. The s-video does work in color, and the remote is great,...

The Great features.

Beware, you get what you pay for


I bought this DVD player because of the price and the fact that it supported MP3 and progressive scan. At the time of purchase I did not have a HDTV. It plays cds and mp3s ok but it's slow to navigate through your 100 mp3s. Plays back DVDs ok but...

Price, lots of features

Progressive scan is poor, hiccups, fragile, and remote sometimes works

Quality control??


I was real excited about replacing my 2 year old Apex with a spiffy new progressive scan Apex ad-800. I ordered it from Amazon for 99 bucks. I installed it and connected everything color.

Progressive Scan for 99 bucks

Can no longer read DVD's after 35 minutes

Poor man's Porsche of DVDs?


Cool Features, DTS/Dolby Decoder especially attractive.

Poor man's Porsche of DVDs?


What attracted me to buying this DVD player was the fact that I bought some cheap sorround speakers and I needed a DVD with a built in AC3 (Dolby Digital 5.1) and a DTS Decoder. Do not confuse models that state that they are DTS/Dolby Digital ready...

Apex AD- 800 definitely worth the price


First let me start off, that I was very apprehensive about purchasing this product. I purchased it online at for $159 (free shipping). However, all my apprehensions were put to rest when I hooked this up to my Sony KV-36HS20 (you can...

Progressive Scan at a phenomenal price!

The setup menu is a tad bit extensive.
