Simple to use and hook up .
Comes with standard rca jacks for output , along with s-video output ( s-video cable not included , must be purchased seperately ) and also component video outputs .
The progressive scan option can be turned off easily by a button on the remote control which is one of the simplest and easiest remote controls i have ever seen or used .
I also own an " apex ad 1201 " dvd player and have had no problems with it since i purchased it almost 1 1/2 years ago .
One big difference between the 1201 and the 2600 models is that the 2600 model is virtually silent .
And does n't need to be placed in a cabinet like the 1201 does .
Friends of mine who own apex tv sets are also all very pleased .
I would not hesitate to purchase this if you are uncertain of the brand name .
Consider it for a future gift too !
