  • Significant Problems, Not Recommended

    Jun 8, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Playback works fine, including MP3 discs
    Cons: Buggy interface, frequent lockups when recording, supports only DVD+R discs for recording

    Summary: This player is plagued by several major problems. A firmware update would probably be able to cure most of them, but there's no indication that Apex is going to release one. At the time of its release this unit was cheaper than comparable models, but ... read more

    Pros: Low price
    Cons: Poor functionality

    Summary: It is not very often you find an electronic product that works as poorly as this one. Yes I can play DVDs. Yes I can record to DVDs. None of it is easy. The user interface is awkward and slow. The fan noise was incredible. After about 6 months the ... read more

    Pros: Good value for the money, reliable, recording quality pretty good.
    Cons: Clock is fast, doesn't play VCD very well.

    Pros: Dirt Cheap
    Cons: Worthless

    Summary: Saw this machine in a flyer for 99 bucks at Value City. I read this is a RECORDER, this cheap? Maybe I can finally replace the ol' VCR. So I go buy it, but then I realize I need blanks to record on. Come to find out, it only records on DVD+R,+RW format. ... read more

  • Beware of Apex's future

    Rated Show
    Pros: Cheap
    Cons: Feels cheap, only works with the less compatible "+" format, uncertain future re company

    Summary: While the Apex DRX-9200 is a better-quality product than its predecessor (which has been discontinued), it still feels low-quality when compared to Panasonic DVD recorders. It also does *not* work with DVD-R or DVD-RW, but only the "plus" format. I think ... read more
