Noiseless , lightweight and oh yeah . Works great ! Silverish color really adds a special touch . Who cares if it does n't have multiple slots ? It plays just about any format ( check before you buy if it plays yours . ) If you watch dvds once in a while like i do , get this ! Apex is made in usa and is one of the underrated brands out there . If you watch one dvd per weekm its yours . However , i do n't know the dvd 's performance on a heavy load of every-day viewing . Either way , can 't go wrong with this price .
