Bought the apex ad-2600 from amazon in 12/03 mainly on price , $ 49.99 - $ 10 rebate = $ 39.99 . That was a mistake . We tried the " finding nemo " dvd and when we got to ~ chapter 28 , the frames started to freeze for no reason . Cleaned the dvd , tried again , no luck . I pulled out our old non-progressive scan toshiba , hooked it back-up and the " finding nemo " dvd works fine . I agree with previous posts that you get what you pay for . I can 't rate it one star only because when it does work it 's pretty good . Only owned it about two weeks so i expect we 're looking at getting another progressive scan dvd player of higher quality very soon .
