Very nice answer to "compact" living...easy, less wires

fairchild3203, Ebay

  • Summary: I love the easy hook up and quick start instructions. Very nice alternative to apartment/condo living. No extra components, less space, and attractive package. Could use more sound mix choices; more bass or even a sub-woofer and more power. Just my personal preference for louder sound! For the price, a good buy. Very pleased with the purchase!!

Dead on arrival - replacement great

kmrotterdam, Amazon

  • Summary: I was looking forward to using this unit (Coby DVD988), but unfortunately only the video worked on the unit. The sound on the unit was dead. After receiving a replacement unit, I really like this all-in-one unit. The sound and picture are great, and I am raising my review to 4 stars. I even bought another unit, even though it has been discontinued (and Coby has gone out of business).

Consumer review/update

Regina Stover, Amazon
10 March 2010
  • Summary: My mother has this particular soundbar and I love it on her gigantic tv. I can't say I had the same great results from this one so I returned it. First it is imperative that anyone purchasing this soundbar that the warranty that would normally come with it is obsolete as Coby has gone out of business so no warranty no tech support.

Coby "Soundbox" System

J. Collins, Amazon
10 March 2010
  • Summary: I really love the all-in one concept this sytem provides and it is a great value for the price, but the size is so big it exceeds the soundbar status and is more like a "soundbox". Make sure you measure your space and check the specs. to verify size;have somewhere to place it before you buy it. It does come with mounting supplies, but you may not have the option.

Good speakers....Poor DVD player

D. Byrd, Amazon
10 March 2010
  • Summary: I got this to replace the tiny speakers in my tv. I watched 2 dvds the first night I got it. Then tried to watch a dvd the next day and nothing happened. The dvd would slide in the slot,but never played again. The remote never worked but I got my Harmony remote to work it. The speakers sound awesome. Lots of bass and very loud. I don't really miss the dvd player since I already had a ps3 hooked up to my tv. Plus I have my ipod touch hooked up to it.

Sound Box

10 March 2010
  • Summary: I wish I would have bought this sooner. I am not a sound expert, but this is just great. It makes my big tv so much better, it's a big improvement over the speakers on the tv...fast shipping and arrived in great condition...

Oldie but Goodie.

Barbara Lithander, Amazon
10 March 2010
  • Summary: I had read the reviews online about this particular sound unit. They didn't give a very favorable picture of it. I decided to give it a chance because of its reasonable price tag. After ordering online, I actually tried to cancel the order. However, it had already been shipped. When I received it, I figured I might as well set it up and see how it worked. I was almost shocked that everything worked perfectly. I've had no trouble with it at all.

Poor DVD player

Amazon Customer, Amazon
10 March 2010
  • Summary: Easy to set up, sounds good. Within a month the DVD stopped working. It just eject the DVDs automatically and leaves marks on them. Support was no help. I had to buy a standalone player to replace the functionality.
