Summary: I teach classes that require a DVD player and need to go into businesses. This unit is compact enough to clip on the back of my TV without adding a lot of weight or bulk. It has played well for me for many years now, much past what I expected from a low cost player. I also like how I can skip with the buttons on top of the player and not just with the remote like some players. The only downfall is the remote doesn't work from a distance of about 10-15'.
Summary: About five minutes in the DVD the sound ends and the picture breaks in sections, and acccording to my repairman the bushings are worn to create the waffles to ooperate the DVD I have to stand it on it sides so it will work
Summary: I had this DVD player for about a month before it stoped working. It was playing one day. The next day it says invalid disc after it spins the disc for almost 10 minutes. I have tried every disc in my DVD collection and I even tried cleaning it with one of those lens cleaners. It still does NOT work. This DVD PLAYER SUCKS!!!!! I don't even want to put the warrenty into effect it stopped working after a month why would I want another one.
Summary: I used it for only few hours. The unit is very noisy and it takes a while to start playing and it gets very worm. Now it does not play at all I tried different CD, DVD still no play I only get "Invalid Disc" after waiting for a while as usual. Also noticed sparks when plugging the unit in and also the disc keeps turning even when the unit turned off, but still plugged in!!! It's been only a month I bought this unit and it only worked few hours.
Summary: I have been using the product for about a week now and so far it has passed the kids test. There are not too many navigation buttons on the unit itself but the remote is well equipped. It is perfect for what I want, great price and ideal for the kids TV to watch their educational DVD's.
Summary: DVD player worked the first time I used it. After that it no longer reads any discs. It is also extremely hot and smells like it's burning up inside. It'll be in the e-waste pile on the next trip. Don't waste a little money on a Coby, spend more money wisely on something else.
Summary: Portable and light-weight, this is a great DVD player for small spaces or rooms. You can easily carry it anywhere without the hassle of bulkiness. Decently priced. I have one and am very satisfied with it.
