Low cost but high quality player

darkangl2025, Viewpoints

  • 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

MeganV, Viewpoints

  • 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.

"This thing is unreliable junk."

Mountain Mike, CNET
8 May 2012
  • Pros: Subtitles and audio buttons so you could change spoken and subtitles without having to stop the movie and go to the menu, you could change on the fly.
  • Cons: This thing is junk. I had one and in less than a year the eject button stopped responding so I had to open it up to force out the DVD that was in there.

Good value

  • Pros: Compact, Consistent Performance, Easy To Setup, Easy To Use, High Quality Picture, Small

Great value!

Noramar, J&R
28 August 2010
  • 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

Great for viewing European PAL DVDs

Marti, J&R
23 June 2010
  • 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.
