Summary: I bought this product for my 1 year old son. His grandparents live 2 hours away so we bought this dvd player to keep him happy during the car ride. We have had it for almost a year now and I'll say that it is a complete waste of money. It reminds me of those old cd players that skip at every tiny touch. We have tried keeping the player as steady as possible by holding it, sitting it on a flat surface, and sitting it on a cushioned surface. It skips/stalls ALL the time.
Summary: I am purchasing a second one of these, because we loved it that much! The first DVD player went with us everywhere. The only problem is, someone left it laying on the floor of the Rav, and it got stepped on. The screen was turned out, so it broke the LCD inside. It's totally our fault, and no DVD player would live up to that kind of abuse. Who knows how many times it got stepped on? Guess I need to shovel out the backseat more often. Anyway, this thing was great.
Summary: This is my second Coby product, and both have been budget purchases for items I figured I'd drop or lose or mess up somehow since I'm rough on portables (the other a 7" Tablet, I also tried and returned a pocket MP3 player from the company.) As such, the first rule of thumb for buying Coby products from my experience is to know that you'll get what you pay for, nothing more or less.
Summary: It does what it says it will do. DVD, SD, USB. SD in a reader as well...but only with battery as the power cord gets in the way. Not a real problem as you just insert the SD card in the back. I nornally use an SD card in a reader...with my regular Philips DVD Player. Currently I have 16gb and 32gb PNY Class 10 cards for fast transfer....from PC and then to Philips DVD Player and a 42" Panasonic. This is the way to operate IMO.
Summary: Overall, I am very happy with this hard disk; I have not yet tested all of its features, but I am happy with the way I can view almost any of my videos with the player. I found that most videos that will not play can be easily converted with Freemake Video Converter (freeware), and then the videos will play the video with no problem.
Summary: I also ordered a TFDVD7377 and got a 7379. Saw previous reviews about the 77's bad remote and jerky play with .avi's....But this was the only reasonbly priced unit that uses a USB or SD card. So far: This remote must be different. Uses a CR2025 battery where the description says 2 AA's. This remote works great for me across the room. Tried .avi's on SD: Great. Better than laptop. Tried .avi's on USB: Same.
Summary: i researched a lot of portable dvd players and found that this one had all the bells & whistles that i wanted including a SD card slot, USB hook up, remote control, etc AND it was a great price!
Summary: Let's be honest here; this is not a great DVD player. There are other better players if you're interested in playing DVD media. The real reason to look at this particular player is it's ability to play DivX files off a USB device or SD card. There aren't all that many products that will do that. For this single feature, the player actually does a pretty good job. You may need to reencode your files for Divx, but it works.
