Summary: I've had this TV since Dec 2010 and it's now Dec 2013 and I have not had a problem with it. Oddly, last night the remote broke but honestly, that's no big deal. (yes I tried new batteries) For a mere $100 I got a great deal, and I've enjoyed using this TV every day. It's the perfect size for a bedroom! Edit to add: the remote works again! Something must have gotten knocked loose. So yeah, great TV! :D Edit to add: It's now November 2014 and this TV still works great!
Summary: Two years until the unit failed. No picture ! No sound ! Used professional test equipment to make my decision. Note: The Amazon cost of this TV on Nov 2011 price was $ 114, NOW August 2013 cost is $ 249. Pretty good jump in price for less than 2 years of service, then failure.
Summary: This Coby replaces one that was all of nine months old when it gave up the Ghost. I don't know what happened, but it killed the DirecTV box at the same time. A whole house surge protector and a small surge protector has been installed on the outlet it is plugged into. The DirecTV box has died again, but the TV is still working, well.
Summary: This is used as the monitor for rearview camera on my travel trailer. In this role this is an excellent display and the only thing keeping me from rating it 5 stars is the hokey start up where it displays its own advertising logo.
Summary: Use this TV in the kitchen on a shelf where small size is important. Smallest LCD TV I could find; price reasonable. Picture is excellent; have used for some time and no problems. Previous reviews noted "tinny" sound - confirmed that, but in the kitchen, watching news / sports, it's fine. If audio quality is important, get powered speakers.
Summary: This TV works fine for the purposes I bought it. We mounted it high on the wall on a bracket so it could be adjusted as needed. The only complaint is that my sink is very close to the unit and the angle is steep so I don't get a good picture. However, from the rest of the room it's great and from my wife's sink (it's farther away) the picture is great. It works fine for the purpose we bought it.
