a toy

Amazon Customer "A.E", Amazon
11 September 2010
  • Summary: this product simply does not worth the dollar i spent on it. it's a toy. only used it for 2 months and it would turn on any more. i called the manufacturer they said it could be the battery. i did what they asked me to do with the batter still it would turn back on. there is no warranty to this product. if it suddenly has a fault, sorry, you would have to buy a new one. it's a toy.

not worth it

Angela D., Amazon
18 March 2010
  • Summary: The concept of this was nice but it broke soon after I bought it. My daughter didn't manhandle it and it just didn't last. The screen was small but it would have been ok if it lasted. Battery didn't last long either. Maybe an hour, hour and a half at best. When it did work it had a "lock" feature on it so kids can't keep turning it off and on.

Bad Product, Bad Company

C. Abbarno, Amazon
22 July 2009
  • Summary: Coby TF-DVD550 3.5-InchTFT Portable DVD/CD/MP3 Player DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT AND DO NOT BUY FROM THIS COMPANY. I originally purchased two of these for my two kids from Electronic Express, an Amazon.com merchant and when we received them, one did not work. I needed them for a trip we were making the following week, so I had to buy another one, making it a total of three purchased and return the damaged one for credit.

Does not hold up

K. Self "ksssssss", Amazon
14 January 2009
  • Summary: I like this at first, but it has too be flat to work and if you held it up to see it, it would skip. We watched 2 movies with this and then was using for a cd player in my daughters room, it work for like a week and then it died. Won't play anything. Total waste of money and the customer services is horrible!! Don't spend the money on this!

Avoid this one, wish I would have.

Kurt C. Hack, Amazon
1 November 2008
  • Summary: Bought two of these last Christmas for both of my teenagers. Long story short, they were both broken within one month of normal use. I purchased these because, admittedly, kids are hard on things and these things were advertised as being a bit more rugged. I was wrong, but you don't need to make the same mistake.

Broke in 1 week, got replacement, broke again in 1 day

Cristina Souza-Piranio "Crissouza", Amazon
21 June 2007
  • Summary: I purchased this DVD player, and after using it for 2 hours a day, for 1 week, it stopped working. I contacted Coby and was advised that I had to pay $18, even though the product has a 90 day warranty. I sent the DVD to them anyway, with the $[...] money order. I received a brand new , sealed, same model back, and this time it stopped working after just 1 day of playing DVDs. The same problem as the 1st one, it just stop reading disks.

My Coby is Special to Me

Amazon
16 January 2007
  • Summary: My Coby is the best gift I ever had. My Coby works really well. I like the favorite color of it and I like it very much. The screen works great and I can see it very clearly. I like the way the headphones fit my ears. It is really cool and you get to listen to music and watch movies so buy one for yourself!

bad product bad company to buy from

D. Knutson, Amazon
16 January 2007
  • Summary: I purchased this item for my father for christmas. One day later is stopped working completely. This product was sold thru amazon by Ritz Camera. It has now been three weeks since we contacted this company to either have the item replaced or refunded. To date this still has not been rectified. I do not suggest that anyone by any product by this manufacturer or from this company. In fact I think amazon should drop Ritz Camera completely.

M. Bennett, Amazon

  • Summary: System is rugged, great quality/features/accessories, good battery life. My kid has put this through the wringer already and its working great. She even poured a cup of water in it! I poured it out, let it sit for a day and it fired right up.

My child loved it, but it wouldn't work past 2 weeks

Kim Gibson "K Gibson", Amazon
9 January 2007
  • Summary: My child loved it and so did I, but the first one, the screen would display after 2 weeks. I replaced it thinking it was defective, and the second one arrive 2 days before Xmas, and 4 days later it would continue to read Loading Disc.... It would be great if it worked, but it seems to have some problems. The sound was perfect, the car charger, the headphones, and most importantly the lock button to lock the functions.
