Dainty but Delightful

AdvantagesSmall but packed with functions

DisadvantagesLevel of sound

"...tell you all about it · Apex AD-1100WB DVD Player · What do you get in your package? · DVD Video Player · Remote Control · Scart Lead · AD-1100 Owners Manual · Two size AA batteries for the remote control · The Look When I saw this model displayed on the shelf I noticed it was so much smaller than all of the other models. The dimensions are 32cm wide x 7cm high x 32cm depth. Described, as mid sized and weighing just 8lb this is ..." Read review

Three Years of Guaranteed Entertainment

AdvantagesGreat price, great guarantee, great range of features

DisadvantagesNo multiregion playback or VCD playback

"I got the Apex DVD player for £69 from my local ASDA about a month ago. I hadn't gone out to buy a DVD player, in fact, much the opposite. I'd just got home from holiday and was *trying* to save money. However, whilst bored in a queue for the checkout I accidentally bought one of these. It seemed one of those offers that was too good to miss! £69 for a fairly advanced player, which looked really good and came with a 3 year ASDA warranty. A month later, ..." Read review

Slinky little number

AdvantagesCheap and Compact

DisadvantagesDoes not play VCDs

"I bought this DVD player from Asda about 3 weeks ago, and must say that I am impressed. The main reason I bought it was because it was cheap - I wanted a second player for the bedroom and did not want to spend a fortune on it as it would not get used an awful lot. I paid just under £70 for it, and because it was Asda, got an automatic 3 year new for old/replacement no quibble warrenty! Now that alone is worth about £50 if not more! The DVD player ..."

Cheap as chips

AdvantagesA lot for not a lot

DisadvantagesNo VCD support

"I paid just under £70 for it, and because it was Asda, got an automatic 3 year new for old/replacement no quibble warrenty! Now that alone is worth about £50 if not more! The reason for the purchase was to have a second player for another room, so price was the main driver. The DVD player is in chrome and visually pleasing. It is remote controlled (which surprised me given the price) but still has all of the buttons discreetly positioned on the ..." Read review

Does a good job for not much money

AdvantagesAffordable viewing

DisadvantagesWish I had read the Ciao reviews before buying mine

"Having just read some of the other reviews for this product I was disappointed to find that I had paid over the odds for this machine! I actually paid £89 for it at a computer fair and thought that I was getting a bargain! Someone must have seen me coming! However, when all is said and done, this is a very tidy player for the money. It is chrome effect and visually pleasing with the standard remote control facilities. The manual control buttons ..." Read review

Ideal for the bedroom. Not for the lounge.

AdvantagesCheap, small, easy to multi-region.

Disadvantages2 channel sound, feels cheap.

"This DVD player is cheap. It's about £30 from the highstreet store. It plays mp3s, dvds and is easy to make multi-region using a series of button inputs on the remote. (codes easily found on the internet) It weighs about 3kg, and sits nicely under the 14" tv in my bedroom. I use it to listen to music CDs and mp3 cds as well as watch dvds. It plays cdrs and dvdrs with no problems. The remote is well laid out and the standby button is easy to ..." Read review

Feature packed bargin buy

AdvantagesSuperb value for money.

DisadvantagesNot easy to use the interface

"I got the Apex (my first DVD) from ASDA for $69, a bit of an impulse buy but I am so glad I did. I am new to DVD, didn't want to sell my video collection down the river. The first thing to notice when I got it out of the box was the ease with which it all installed. Scart leads and audio leads were there - straight into the back of the telly, straight into the back of the stereo and within 5 minutes I was watching Lord of the rings in glorious ..." Read review

Apex DVD Player

AdvantagesLasts long time, good performance

DisadvantagesLack of image playback and surround sound support.

"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 ..." Read review
