Consumer review (

Apex AD-3201 is a near miss.


I bought this unit in February 2003 at K-Mart when our local store was liquidating their inventory prior to going out of business. It was intended as a replacement for my Philips player which had gone haywire a short time before. Although I know of ...

Inexpensive. Claims to play wide variety of formats.

Freezes on layer change. Difficult-to-read markings on remote control. No manufacturer support.

Great DVD player for anyone on a budget.


We got this player for my dad's BD, after gone through I think 3 VCR's. We decided to finally move into the digital age, so we looked around, and finally found this at Sears' on clearance. Went out and rented a couple DVD's, sat down, and set it...

Worst DVD player i've ever owned


Buying this DVD player has been a bad experience from the very start. I owned an Apex AD-660 that was working perfectly fine. When I saw this for sale for $70 I had to have it since i've been wanting to upgrade to digital optical and component inputs....

A good deal


This dvd player is an inexpensive and decent dvd player that plays dvds, cds, mp3, cd-rs and more -which is fabulous. However it has some problems, that raises the questions of 1)is it a good "deal" and 2) is it a good dvd player. The player often...

Inexpensive and does a lot!

I'll Probably Keep It.


Got this player about 4 months ago at the same time as I bought a new TV and theater package. I've been relatively happy with it, however, lately I've had this nagging voice in my head telling me I should have spent a little more and possibly gotten a...

Apex AD-3201, the Secret Menu returns


Cheap. Flexible. Region Free and Macrovision Defeat. Flash Upgradable!

Typical spotty Apex quality control.

Good enough for these constant media changes.


We constantly hear about intellectual piracy and how the entertainment industry is loosing billions, but I feel that we as consumers also have some rights. It's not that most of us will steal a theatrical release and stamp out millions of copies and...

Easily removed copy protection.

Remote is better for target practice, come on, black print on dark gray!

A nice player for the average DVD owner.


This DVD player will perform very well for the "average" DVD owner. For those of us who aren't going to use a ton of extra features, who are hoping to get a DVD player that pretty much just has a nice picture, good sound and which isn't going to give...

Inexpensive. Updates for firmware available from manufacturer. No major flaws.

Complicated remote design. Minor subtitle flaw. Minor flaw playing double-layered DVDs.

Great player for my parents


I bought this player for my parents Christmas 2001. I made sure to set it up for them, but it wasn't difficult. The instructions explained things well. I read reviews about Apex products online before I made my decision to purchase this one online...

Flexibility, features, quality (as far as I can tell), MP3 playback, low price

Clumsy remote, slow DVD tray

Apex, the flexible...


I began the search for a flexible DVD player with the requirements that it would not only be a good DVD player, but also allow me to play archived home video on VCDs or SVCDs. The unit should also play homemade CDs and MP3 discs. Well, much to my...

Great Price, even plays homemade SVCD, VCD, CD, MP3 in addition to DVD and HDCD.

no MP3 shuffle, CD-RW has some problems.
