The APEX DVD player is basically what you get for your money. It offers the basic features of DVD playback but lacks some key features required in todays technology. The DVD player is capable of playing most DVD's however it is quite poor at picture disc playback as it often tells you that there is some form of error. It also lacks LCD display so it is hard to tell features such as time lapsed, chapter number and so on (unless you bring it up on on-screen display). I also found a problem when resuming a film. When you insert the same disc you have just played the player tells you to press the resume button to continue; when there is no such button on the remote or player itself. This DVD player however can take quite a bit of work and perform pretty well. Overall I would say that this DVD player is only recommended for 'cheap and cheerful' purchasing (i.e, for use in a bedroom).
