Hit or Miss

Has anyone heard anything about the Apex AD660 DVD player? I’m in the market to buy a DVD player and it would be nice to get one that could also play MP3 discs. Additionally, I have a lot of standard audio CD-Rs that my AWIA stereo won’t play. A lot of other DVD players can’t play CD-Rs — it has to do with the lasers they use.

Or should I cough up a few more bucks and buy the 3-disc version with Karaoke?

Well, there was the Apex AD600-A that got tossed around MeFi a year ago. My roommate got one before they took them off the market (don’t know if they ever did), and they played cds burned with mp3s like a charm. Not a bad quality dvd player, either. Glad to see Apex didn’t stop. I know what I want to covet now. 😛

Some friends of mine have an Apex DVD player (not sure which model, but they got it in December). They haven’t had any trouble, but they also haven’t tried to play any MP3 CDs yet. I’m not sure what they’re waiting for! (Maybe a CD burner…)

When shopping for tech toys I usually go to Epinions, Deja and the Amazon comments sections to see what people are saying and then go to Pricescan.com to find a good deal. See ya!

Sam’s is selling the AD660 for $130. The first AD660 was DOA out of the box; I tried several recent DVDs and it would play, then in a few minutes the screen went to snow or green, and the unit locked up. I had to power off to restart and got the same. Also during play it would change to a different language by itself. So, I returned the unit to Sams and they gave me another one. NO PROBLEM. The second player works without a hitch. I have not yet checked if it works on VCD or SVCD, but this is a MUST for me. I BOUGHT A 1 YEAR PARTS AND LABOR WARRANTY EXTENSION FROM SAMS FOR ONLY $5.00…WELL WORTH THE PEACE OF MIND.
