Summary: As the title states, this is a piece of junk that doesn't work most of the time. And now Coby Electronics is shut down so I can't get it repaired/replaced after just a few months. Total waste of money.
Summary: I've owned this unit for a little over a year. I bought it specifically to use as a monitor and speaker only. I've never used it to actually play a DVD. I feed a video and audio source into it from the head unit in the front of the vehicle. I bought this specific unit because at the time, it was the best option. While it worked, it worked well. The unit stopped playing video only recently. Audio was still fine.
Summary: I am giving this product 2 stars for the picture quality and ease of use. I'm also ONLY giving this product 2 stars because I bought it Feb, 2011 and it finally quit on us yesterday after acting sort of..."quirky" over the last 3 months. "Quirky" in that it didn't always play, it would sometimes stay stuck on the blue V-ZON screen until I would have to turn it off, then turn it on again. Occasionally that did the trick. But, as of 1 day ago, it no longer works.
Summary: I wanted a small DVD player I can use at the gym while exercising on a treadmill, elliptical machine, or stationary bike. The flat design of this Coby is ideal for this purpose; I can place the player where people traditionally have placed magazines or books. It works great! The picture and sound quality are good, and the controls are simple and logical. I have no complaints about the design or basic functioning of this player.
Please Don't Waste Your Money on this Item, it's Junk!

Summary: I ordered this player for my daughter who was a year old at the time and she's now 18mos. The idea was to occupy her on our several 8 hour trips each year to visit family. The only positive thing I can say is that the item came on time as it was promised. I admit I pushed it by ordering at the last minute and got it the night before we were to leave. The car adapter did not work right out of the box.
Summary: I have owned a bunch of these portable DVD's and this was by far the worst. It lasted a few weeks. It was mounted on a piece of furniture brand new and crapped out in no time. Never dropped, dirty, not even handled. Spend more on a Sony they seem to last the longest.
Summary: Product worked fine for the first 30 days -which is the actual warranty- after which became totally useless. Customer service 100% ugly, nasty, and despicable. Never ever I will purchase COBY products again!!!!!!!!
Summary: This product was purchased for my sons 2nd birthday and an upcoming road-trip. At first I thought it was great, nice picture, decent sound, I preferred this design to the laptop like design. After about 2 months, and not a whole lot of use it stopped working. The audio was a little fuzzy and the screen just completely stopped working, no picture at all. It was too late for an Amazon return, so I contacted Coby directly since the device was still under warranty.

Summary: The car charger would not function after two weeks of use. My wife received the run around from the seller and Coby for two months about getting a replacement charger and in the end they stopped answering our emails/calls and didn't send a replacement. Amazon gave us a $5 credit, big deal, we still have a product that will not function in the car, which was our intended use.
