It's been awhile since we've seen a DTV converter box on the test bench
, and while the Apex DT250 isn't anything extraordinary, we figured it prudent to pass along CNET
's review and remind you that February 2009 is drawing ever closer
. That being said, critics found that this box produces remarkably good image quality, and the S-Video output / analog pass-through were also smiled upon. Unfortunately, it managed to pull in fewer stations than rival boxes, and neither the bundled remote nor the EPG were top-shelf material. Still, if you're close enough to towers that signal strength won't be an issue, it may be worth looking at if you value stunning SD quality. Whatever that means.
