Summary: Screen went black after 2 years. It's horrible because every so often it works... I don't want to throw it in the trash when it works. But 95% of the time it's black so, I'm throwing in the dumpster. Thanks apex for ruining the environment.
Summary: After reading so many negative reviews on this TV, I feel that I should write about my experience. I bought my TV on special sale 31/2 years ago. My son set it up for me and I can say that I have not had any of the problems these people are having. The picture is bright and clear as day. The sound is acceptable and better than some other TV's like it. Granted, I have this set up in my bedroom so it is not my main TV.
Summary: This product has a self life of 4 years. They make this way so it's almost disposable. Forget about calling Customer Service for this model. They refer you KCPI which is the make of the TV. THEY DON'T ANSWER THEIR PHONE....NEVER.....EVER. Besides....outdated wiring ports, compassitors that have little power so they overload and burst, it's an expensive toy that just doesn't get idea that if you pay over $500 for an item it should last you more than 4 years!!!!!
Summary: I purchased this TV a few years back on Black Friday. For the first few months, the TV worked good but the picture wasn't as vivid as a named brand TV, which I expected. You get what you pay for...right? So after a few months, one of the HDMI inputs stopped recognizing devices plugged into it. About another month later, the second HDMI failed and sure enough almost the exact day one month later, the 3rd one was gone too.
Summary: I've owned this TV for a few years and it is still alive and kicking like new Cons: Bad Remote. Remote does work well from a distance, you just need to point it directly at the infrared sensor. Where is the sensor, you ask? Right where the blue light is. There are direct buttons to most of the input sources, but you must cycle through HDMI, making it a little difficult for 3rd party blasters like the Logitech Harmony to get the correct one. Bad sound.
Summary: I bought this in December of 2010 for $429.00. A great price at the time. TV works good with the exeption of the remote. 1) the remote is the cheapest and flimsiest remote I have ever seen. 2) the tv can be turned on using the remote! but, no other buttons work on the remote until the tv has been on for 5 or 6 min. In 2010 this was a good purchase, even with the minor problems. In 2013 there are hundreds of better options.
Summary: I, like many on here, picked up this tv on Black Friday 2010. I have been very happy with the picture. The only things that I don't like about the tv are; 1. one of the HDMI ports in the back no longer works, but I just use one of the other ones. 2. The tv's sound/speakers really suck. I use my home theatre system anyway, so this is non issue. 3. THE REMOTE! UGH! Since day 1 the remote was crap.
Summary: I realize now that apex products are not worth the money!!! After 4 mo. My TV converter went out. I will say any company that sells apex is just as bad. I feel that I was stolen from and scammed. Both companies wanted me to pay for return shipping both ways. Really that would be throwing good money after bad... my kiss can wait to watch the TV untitled I can get another one in another brand... my opinion is Apex are thief's and scammers. They wont answer calls or email.
Summary: I've had this Apex for a couple or more years and it will not, no way, play my phone through the hdmi connection. Works everywhere else but there's something missing from this thing that won't let the phone connect. Otherwise it's been a fine bedroom tv with a laptop connected at all times.
Summary: Bought this TV about two years ago, and I'm using it to write this review. It was on sale at Target for $350 during a weekend holiday sale (mind you, this is 2010 when 40" TV's were generally expensive). I had bought it over a Sony Bravia, and I wish I had the money for that TV. I had also bought this TV to put in a barracks room at NAS Lemoore. So far... NOT REGRETTING.
