For the first few weeks , this player was everything i expected it to be , an affordable multi-format dvd player with a stylish slim case as advertised .
Then my dvds would stop playing in the middle , or not even be read at all .
New cds almost always began skipping after a few plays .
I thought it was just the player , but then i started checking the discs to find that the apex 2600 is actually ruining my media .
There are funny little ridges on the dvd that look like the slice of a tree trunk !
This player is not worth any price and i recommend that you do n't purchase it .
I intend to contact the company , but from what i 've read .
I just got screwed out of fifty bucks .
Apex does n't answer the phone .
* sigh .
