Summary: I had this product for several months, but only used it a total of maybe ten times before it stopped working completely. Even in earlier uses it didn't work as advertised, because it wouldn't play my DVD+Rs correctly. Also this player has the worst remote control I've ever used. The buttons are completely flat and extremely hard to push. I had a similarly priced unit from Magnavox that lasted for years, so I don't buy the whole 'you get what you pay for' argument.
Summary: I bought an $80 Sanyo DVD Player from Best Buy that lasted a month before failing. Best Buy wouldn't refund or replace the broken DVD player, so I went online and bought this one for $35. I have been using it for about 5 months now (about 4 times a week) and I have had no problems with it. My 3-year old also figured out how to use it in under 5 minutes.
Summary: I was able to use this product twice before it ceased functioning. I watched one DVD over 2 sessions and when I attempted to watch another one a few weeks later, it wouldn't even power on. Truly you get what you pay for.
Excerpt: Of course, it might have had something to do with me being a regular customer at the store and him not wanting to lose my business. I implore all potential customers, avoid this and all Coby products! They do not last - even if you pay to have the machines shipped back to them and back to you, they still will not last! Save your money, save your time and prevent several headaches and aggravation!
Summary: This product does what it advertises and not really much else. It has progressive scan playback with component out and digital audio out. Playback quality is passable though it does not contain the technologies in higher-end dvd players to prevent pausing during layer-changes and buffer through skips and dirty disc sections. But then again, it's a $40 dvd player. The remote is, well, a remote you'd expect with a dvd player of this price.
Buen reproductor / El control remoto es de la edad de piedra!

Summary: Me gusto mucho el reproductor, se ve muy bien y es una excelente alternativa para alguien como yo, que poco ve películas en DVD, supongo que todas esas cosas "extrañas" o "supermegaplay" que llevan los otros han sido eliminadas en este equipo, aunque no desmerece nada, funciona a las mil maravillas, tiene justo lo que yo necesito y si un comprador cuenta con un sistema de audio de 5.1 que no haya sido importado de una galaxia lejana, este reproductor le va a servir de...
Summary: I purchased this DVD player cause i thought it was a nice original design and is half the size of a regular DVD player, but when i went to use it for the third time the unit would not turn on. Since it was older than 30 days (but less than a year) i called Coby directly. They said i had to send it to them, plus $12 to get it fixed or they would send a new one, but that it would take 4-6 weeks!
