I purchased two apex 2600 for christmas presents . So far we have only hooked up one of them . The unit seems to play all formats that i have put in it ( jpeg , kodak pic 's and dvd-r ) i have read other reviews and some good and soom not so good , but my feeling at this time is " two thumbs up " ! ( i guess only time will tell ? ) P.s the remote control does seem to get confused at times and doesnt respond but it may be just operator error ?
