Summary: I have bought this player back in March for my 3 y.o. I was satisfied with it at first. It fits nice in the car. We only used the product few times. The DVD will spin the disc for the a minute or two and then display "Wrong Disc" message. After a while the DVD screen flashes and then goes dark. I have called the COBY and ask then to repair it. The said it is out of 90 days warranty and I have to take it to the local repair shop.
Summary: I purchased two of these coby players around christmas 2006. These were great little players for about 4 months then they started acting up....not wanting to play the dvd giving a "wrong disc error" this happed off and on ( i contacted coby but the warranty was already past they would do nothing) then about 6 months old (june 2007)they have completely quite working.
Summary: Had the Coby player for two months. I bought it from Amazon as a XMAS present for my son.It worked great and came with everything you need. Then it died and simply would not work. Purchase with caution. I do not think this is a product that is very well made. It is great out of the box but I doubt it will last more than a few months.I did by the protection plan from Amazon for $20.00 and after paying for shipping received the full purchise price back.
Summary: Actually 0 stars I bought these for their simple styling. I bought these to be wall mounted. I bought theses for a continuous loop video playback I bought initially 2 of these for a video installation. After about 24 hours of footage one of them refused to recognize any disks DVD or CD or otherwise. I had taken both down to cut out the wiring, left them out a week and figured the kids found them. So, since one worked, I bought another.
Summary: I was looking for a DVD player for my daughter that could be used both on her little TV in her room and on the road for trips. I liked the design of this item being a tablet style instead of a clam-shell style portable player. I had seen this Coby dvd player on other websites and, like here, it had a wide variance of reviews.
Summary: I LOVE the fact that this player is a tablet style. I have no idea why someone would buy a "mini laptop" style for use in a car. My child would kick the part that hangs down. And I don't want the player to hang between the 2 front seats. This comes with the headrest mount and all the plugs. The battery has lasted about 3 hours for us. The unit seems to charge while playing in the car (although the manual doesn't confirm it.
Summary: I did a lot of research before buying this item and determined that this was the right product for me- I simply wanted a good, inexpensive dvd player for the car to entertain my 1 1/2 year old. Just received this item, so can't rate it's longevity yet, but wanted to share a couple of tips! #1- BUY the warranty!
Great while it lasted.....recommend the replacement plan!

Summary: I purchased two of the Coby TF-DVD7050 in July 2006 for our vacation because I have 4 children and figured they could pair up, since each unit comes with two sets of headphones. I have to say we've been very pleased with both units. Even after using them extensively during our summer vacation, we've continued to use both units as our main DVD player (switching off every few weeks to keep the batteries "healthy")because our home unit stopped working right after we bought...
Summary: We bought this DVD player to use in our car for our 18 month old daughter. It fits nicely over the front seat headrest, which was a big plus for us. (Most of the others would not hang neatly from the headrest.) It never skips, and even has a remote that I can use from the front seat. We originally had a more expensive Sony model, but this one is so much better. Plus, if we need to take it somewhere, it has the ability to stand up on a table like a TV.

Summary: Bought it to keep my 3 year old busy while flying across country. Found that I used it for myself as well when flying. Works great. The tablet style seemed to work out really well since he liked to hold it while watching. I'm not sure why anyone would spend more money then this for a portable DVD player. The picture and sound are fine. Good deal.
