Summary: I had been looking for a tv that I can afford for about 2 years. I finally decided to turn to amazon after not being able to find what I wanted in a store. I thought I was getting a good deal but when the tv came, the first thing I noticed was that there was no remote. I thought the seller just forgot to include it so I will go out and purchase one. no biggy. I also noticed there was no recipt with seller phone number etc. I really thought it was just an error.
Summary: The tv is gorgeous, light and thing....however the speakers aren't very good. You can turn it up to it's highest volume and if someone flushes the toilet you'll miss something someone said on whatever you're watching. We use this tv mainly for our bedroom since we don't watch it that often. It is very nice don't get me wrong and when I'm home alone it's perfect for snuggling in bed and watching a movie. Just wish it had better sound.
Summary: The tv was very defective. Like new, please as soon as I turned the tv on it was flickering. Also they didn't send a manual or the screws to attach the tv to the base. If I ever buy another tv it will be from a store I can physically go to.
Summary: I bought this Coby tv after checking the sales at other sites, Amazon had a competable price, the tv, has a nice clear picture, this is my first flat screen and I would deffinetly recommend buying from Amazon!! They were very helpful as to what to buy with it and everything set up nicely, The tv is great!!!The HDMI cables are great and the bracket they offer with it was perfect!!
Summary: I've had the TV for about 5 months and it has been a great experience. The coloring is nice and looks great mounted in my small apartment. My only complaint is that the volume on the Tv is very low but it's not a big deal because we don't use the tv that often. UPDATE: I've had this tv for almost a yr and I've run into more problems.. like it shuts off for no reason and the volume goes up and down on its own.
COBY - Color? Operational? Bargain? Yeah...about that...

Summary: Like many others, bought this on Black Friday 2011. It worked for roughly 100 days, just enough to get it out of the 90 day warranty period. Worked is relative though, the screen was quite bright...uncomfortably so in a darkened room. The color was over-saturated and no amount of fiddling with the the settings would make them comfortable for regular movies. It makes cartoons look quite vibrant however, so maybe for a play room? The sound was mediocre on a good day.
Summary: **UPDATE** - I'm updating this only to say that my brother-in-law, who bought this same TV at the same time I did, just had his die as well. Same issue, it would not turn on anymore. His lasted longer than mine only because it was rarely used. In terms of hours turned on, they were probably about the same. This company makes TERRIBLE products and DOES NOT stand behind them. I got this TV in a Black Friday sale, for $250. That was, what, 6 weeks ago?
