In talking about the Copy TF-DVD7337 portable DVD player one thing that’s immediately noticeable is that it weighs four pounds. That doesn’t sound like a lot, but compared to other systems currently on the market that are under 2 pounds, it decreases the portability of this player. On the other hand, if you don’t mind 2 pounds in exchange for a great price point of around $100.00 then this is a nice little system.

In talking about the Copy TF-DVD7337 portable DVD player one thing that’s immediately noticeable is that it weighs four pounds. That doesn’t sound like a lot, but compared to other systems currently on the market that are under 2 pounds, it decreases the portability of this player. On the other hand, if you don’t mind 2 pounds in exchange for a great price point of around $100.00 then this is a nice little system.

Coby has created a portable DVD player that includes the 180 screen rotation like more expensive models and parental controls. It accepts video, audio and photo files from USB drives and SD/MMC cards. There’s a digital and analog AV output for people looking to use this with their home theatre system or with a hotel TV. Similar to higher end models its compatible with DVD, DVD+R/RW, JPEG, AVI, MP3 and DivX formats, provides twin headphone jacks, an AC adapter, car adapter, and integrated stereo speakers. If that sounds like a lot for $100.00 it is, but its not without some drawbacks.

Overall the screen is about 7” and it seems to get a nice, crisp image, but there’s no control to lighten or darken images. Compared to the Coby systems of even one year ago, this is vastly improved. The battery life on the TF-DVD7377 is average, generally getting about 3 hours per charge. What hasn’t improved is the remote. It’s simply not a good design and doesn’t work well. You have to be up close and personal with the DVD player to get a signal connection. If you’re buying a system for the remote, don’t consider this one. Additionally, if you want a DVD player that’s got a sturdy metal case, the TF-DVD7377 isn’t a good fit. The entire case is plastic, and probably won’t stand up to a lot of abuse (i.e. I don’t recommend it for children). The sound quality is passable and far better with headphones.

Even having said all that I think that the price says it all. You’re not going to get bells and whistles in a $100 portable DVD player. Honestly, if you get a full year’s use out of it, then it pays for itself.
