Summary: I've had this TV for almost a year now and it works great! I use it as a monitor for my computer, very nice picture. I sit 3 feet from the TV, so it feels like a larger TV. HUGE! Ever since I had it, I've only seen one dead pixel. It's in such a place that I hardly ever see it. They say the speakers are crap. Hook up some external speakers. Does not matter to me, as I don't use the sound part of the TV at all. I used the PCs sound card.
Summary: I bought one locally and it worked fine. I bought another for the guest room. Within two weeks the first lost the picture and sound. I contacted COBy and they told me I had to send it to them (TEXAS) at my expense and enclose a $40.00 MO to cover the return. I was so angry I refused to send it back and told them what I thought of their policies. The second (guest room) I installed in my room. It also has issues. Periodically the sound goes off.
Summary: I bought two of these for the kids rooms. both failed within six months. I have heard from others that this is not unusual for Coby. However, I still have larger COBY that is still working fine.
