We have bought three of these Coby players over the past 2 years. Mainly because they are small and cheap. All failed in under six months, all worked as described for the first several weeks, then had loading issues and then just failing all together. They are used rarely in our guest room or for the kids to view DVDs occasionally if we have company downstairs. Had that situation this past weekend where I popped in a brand new DVD and the player refused to load it. It then refused to even power down after I repeatadly pressed the power button. I ended up just unplugging it and tossing it in the garbage. I'll spend the extra $30 and get a more reliable player so I don't have to worry about ANOTHER one breaking down at an in opportune time.

Nothing fancy about this DVD player, works as described. I needed a portable player that would fit in the same bag with my 10" portable LCD TV. I often work in remote areas where there are no signals of any kind, so this unit fits my entertainment needs. Some locations have cable or satellite, which is why I prefer TV setup over a portable DVD player w/ display. I have used this unit several times, so far no problems. Easy packing and connecting capabilities.

If you just need a basic (no screen), very portable ALL-REGION DVD player - this has got to be one of the best deals on Planet Earth.
I bought this for my grandkids with the intention to hook it up to a projector and modest audio system.
Out of the box this thing plays ALL-REGION DVDs (I've not seen this in any other player, and, in fact most manufacturers will not divulge the information necessary to enable their PAL/NTSC/Secam / Region Code(s) - claiming some legal gobbledegook) - this guy just WORKS without any tinkering in this area (I have a bunch of Europen DVDs, because some are cheaper to buy in Europe, even with shipping, than in the US).
The grandkids are totally enthralled; they can watch movies in bed, on the ceiling, or the big screen - just like the movie theater. Something they absolutely look forward to in the evening - no problem getting these kids to bed!
The lack of screen is a non-issue for my application, and, since I'm using external amps the audio is of no concern either.
This is the cheapest way to get data from the DVD disk to external devices...and, did I mention, it's ALL-REGION right out of the box?!!
Ultra-compact, ultra-cool.
Best of all, if it gets trashed, I can afford to buy a half-dozen more at this price.

I was looking for a good DVD player for a tight space on my boat. This one fit the bill and it works great. I purchased the extended warranty after reading some not so good reviews, but hope I won't need it.

If you want a reliable, functional player for as little money down as possible, Coby is perfect. Mind you, you must settle for the bare minimum in terms of playback functions. The player does not allow for much in search and scan beyond jumping from one chapter to another. The remote has a limited range, so you have to aim it fairly close to the player to use it. In addition, it does not have any means for tracking the minutes that have elapsed in the playback. Otherwise, it is a reliable player that can play most DVD's, even those with some blemishes and scratches, and is not prone to skipping, stopping or other problems.

I just rec'd the Coby DVD. I took a chance and purchased two, one for my mother and one for myself. I haven't had it but a week and just had the opportunity to connect it at home and at my mothers house. So the only thing I can say so far so good. I couldn't read the instructions in the manual because the print is entirely to small so I just used common sense. It was fairly easy once you connected the cords in the right inputs. The remote you have to get use to as to how it functions. I don't think anything is wrong with it you just have to make sure you point it facing the player's lcd and you have to determine whether to press with a quick release or hold the button down till a response by a prompt on the tv screen appears. It plays great and the cost was great as well. I'll write another review after I have had it a while. Hopefully this unit won't disappoint. I wasn't sure whether I wanted to purchase due to some of the negative reviews I had read. So I rate it a 5 because at this time I'm completely satisfied and just the right size to fit in tight spaces and light weight.

Needed a cheap portable DVD player to use at wedding since I didn't want to have to use my laptop. Well you get what you pay for.

The DVD is compact and that's the only good thing about it. Hooked everything up for a test run of the wedding DVD. Everything was fine with the exception of the noise level, then the DVD skipped. I thought it was the DVD so I took it back a few frames and it didn't happen. Then a few seconds later it skipped again at a different point in the DVD. Still thinking it was the DVD, I tried another DVD, Gladiators and even that skipped. Now I knew it wasn't the DVD.

For a wedding slide show / video this was unacceptable. If you're willing to live with the noise level that thing produces, the cheap plastic casing and the occasional skipping of the DVD go for it, but I would avoid this product. Should have trusted the other reviewers that had a similar experience. Cheaper isn't always better especially in this case. TRUST ME! ------ Product was returned.
