Summary: Bought this player for a camp house we have on the lake. Took it there and it lasted 6 dvds and then quit recognizing them. Disc load error. Kept it too long to take back. Avoid Coby at all costs.
Summary: I bought 2 of these units and they are exhibiting identical behaviors, so I know it's not a fluke; they're just poorly designed. Like Tom and Elena (previous reviewers) I too have had problems with both basic functions as well as advanced features. When using SD cards, the units will only display 999 pictures. That sounds like a lot, but a 2GB card can easily hold more than that. Coby claims these will play DivX movies. Well, they do... sort of.
Summary: I bought this dvd player because of it's ability to play usb media. However, I found that it can only read jump drives and powered hard drives. It was unable to read my usb-powered Western Digital Passport. I tried adding a powered usb port, but that didn't work. I was impressed that it will play DIVX, .avi, and ripped DVD files. About 2 months after I bought it, it no longer recognized any DVD's. I've looked unsuccessfully for a firmware upgrade for this dvd player.
Summary: Just a heads up: I ordered from J&R because it appeared that they were one of the only shops selling this player in black. Sadly, it arrived today in ugly silver. Add to that the display is bright green. Looks nowhere *near* as elegant as the solid black with white display that the image here shows.
