OSD stopped after one month.

Anonymous, Newegg
6 November 2010
  • Summary: The TV's nice, but if you have to deal with their customer service you're going to have issues. When I e-mail an address called "techsupport@coby.com" I expect to get tech support, not get fobbed off on a phone line, especially given that I have "issues" dealing with people over phones.
  • Pros: Good picture. Several connectors. Mostly functional even without an On-Screen Display. Nice viewing range, especially from the sides. Oddly, the closed captioning works even though the OSD doesn't. I guess it's a pro that one can function independant of the other.
  • Cons: On-Screen Display cut out after one month. Doesn't mix well with some PS2 video modes so I cannot play some of my games on it. Tech support was a hassle to work with. I e-mailed their tech support address and I got a response telling me to call a phone number, effectively blowing me off. I called...

Great TV

Michael S., Newegg
14 January 2010
  • Summary: Would definitely buy another one of these if I needed it.
  • Pros: Great TV. Cheap. Got it installed in just a few minutes and the picture looked great out of the box. Usually I have to do a lot of tweaking to get anything to look good on an LCD. Also, the specs say 720p, but it actually supports 1080i and 1080p, as well. Pleasantly surprised by that.
  • Cons: None that I can see, but I'm not a videophile. I just want a decent looking TV. One dead pixel, but it's in the deep bottom left hand corner where you can't notice it unless you're really looking.

Not even close to 100% satisfied

John S., Newegg
13 January 2010
  • Summary: Have to contact Newegg to see if we can get another if by chance it was just this one particular unit
  • Pros: Low cost.
  • Cons: After reading the reviews of this set I decided to purchase for my mom. As soon as we received the unit I hooked it up and the picture quality was horrible. Tried every setting and input available but it was just terrible. I own 2 Olivia's (non name brand cheapo's) and the picture quality is fine...

This is a Great TV

SHAWN K., Newegg
7 January 2010
  • Pros: This COBY television has a very sharp and colorful picture. I went from a standard CRT television to this TV, and this being my first LCD television. From the moment I hooked up my Xbox 360 to it, my jaw dropped. The picture is very good and clean, and games that I have played before looked much ...
  • Cons: Like as stated before, the Remote feels cheap and I cannot get it to work with my Xbox360 Universal...But I can live with that.

Amazing deal

Casey F., Newegg
6 January 2010
  • Pros: This TV is great, hooked my computer up to it with a DVI to HDMI cable, changed it to my primary display, and bam, desktop was on my TV and looked perfect. I didn't even need to resize like I had with other 720p TVs. I've got a mini-stereo cable going into it from the computer, playing games and ...
  • Cons: None so far.

Excellent Value

Alan K., Newegg
19 November 2009
  • Summary: If you are a tech purist or someone who needs a big name brand, this is not for you. But if you just want a great value on a very nice 32" HDTV, this model is highly recommended.
  • Pros: Great quality image. Beautiful, bright, sharp picture when viewing an HD channel. Very attractive design with permanently attached swivel base. Built-in speaker sound quality is better than typical for a tv in this class and the speakers are front facing. It is fully assembled and I just needed t...
  • Cons: Remote is fairly poor quality with limited options. A nicer remote would have been appropriate for this model. But it does include the buttons that you will use most frequently. With most cable/satellite sytems you will primarily use the cable box remote and rarely use the Coby remote, so this is...

User Review

Pierre R., Newegg
17 November 2009
  • Summary: This unit is better than I expected. It does get a bit warm around the ventilation holes on top. But not even close to a CRT.
  • Pros: Arrived the next day after I ordered it: Thanks NewEgg. Very simple to set up. Menu oriented display is user friendly. Picture quality is great. Lots of helpful features. Viewing quality is very good from almost any angle. Recommend reading the manual for set up to understand the proper button se...
  • Cons: None yet.

great deal

John B., Newegg
25 October 2009
  • Summary: once again, unit came in perfect condition, was received in 2 days from the time i put through the order.
  • Pros: beautiful tv especially for the price. shipped and received quickly but i suppose that has more to do with newegg and UPS than Coby. I will admit that I'm not an expert on LCD displays but as someone who can appreciate a good picture, everything looks great to me and the setup was a breeze, insta...
  • Cons: didn't come with an hdmi cable but for the price oh well, had an extra one handy.
