Later this year, I'm gonna be moving out of the country to a place that's region 3. However, I currently have a large collection of region 1 discs, so I've decided to get a region free player. I've thought of keeping my current player and just getting a region 3 player when I get there, but I might as well get a region free so I can watch any disc I want in the future. I currently have a Toshiba SD-1200 (great player!) which I believe doesn't have a region free hack... So I'm planning to spend no more than $300 on a region free player.
I found the discontinued Apex player on eBay ($220), but I don't know about the brand...Is it reliable? I'd be more comfortable with a major brand unless someone tells me something good about the Apex. Good things about the Apex --> its versatility. It plays MP3 discs too (Plays DVD/MP3/VCD/SVCD/CD/CD-R/CD-RW). Of course it's region free and it's very cheap!! IT sounds great, just not sure of the quality. Any advice on this machine or suggestion on other good players with Region free hacks??
