Excerpt: I've had this DVD player for almost two years now. It still runs really well. I've even left it on many times all night (because I've fallen asleep watching movies) and that player never experienced any problems. Unlike other DVD players that I've had to use cleaning disks on, I've never had to clean this player. The only flaw I have ever found with this DVD player is the limited remote control options, specifically, there is no fast forward or rewind buttons.
Coby DVD-224 has outlasted other expensive players
9 September 2012
Excerpt: I originally purchased the Coby DVD-224 Dvd player for my brother about 5 years ago. It came with a rebaate (the main reason I bought it), but I sent it in incorrectly and never got the rebate. But given the opportunity, I would have bought this DVD player all over again, it's just that good! We love the size of it--- it's not huge, but it's definitely not chinsy and dinky either. We can't think of anything that should be different, nor have we had any problem with it.
Excerpt: i still have this model of dvd coby since 6 years ago, i bought it on december 2004 and still works perfectly the remote control works too, i like it and i recommend it for everyone who like quality, coby so far is one of the best brands of electronics i have many accesories of them.
Summary: This is a replacement (possibly temporary) for my 12-year-old DVD player, which just about blew up last week. I bought it because it was SO inexpensive. It works great, and I may keep it for a whole lot longer than expected. It works just as well as any other DVD player. The cons: had to really search the manual to figure out how to connect it. Also, I still can't figure out the whole progressive scan thing.
Pros: Attractive Design, Compact, Consistent Performance, Easy To Use, High Quality Picture
Summary: for the price, this is a great way to see the PAL DVDs that I own. There were no instructions for setting the country code. You'll need to call Coby customer service for that. They are very helpful.
