I bought this TV from another supplier in New York. After two weeks, I noticed that the channel scan took forever to go from channel to another, long delay such as 4 seconds! It would also get stuck on one channel in the favorites mode.
The I noticed that the TV would not turn on with the remote even after the batteries were changed and even then the TV would not turn on manually. If I unplugged it, it would turn on with the remote and it would turn off BUT IT WOULD NOT TURN ON AGAIN, and so I had to repeat the process of unplugging it.
THE SOUND IS OVERDRIVEN WITH THE 10 WATT EACH SPEAKERS...5 Watts is sufficient with my Viewsonic which I prefer!
They are sending me another Coby which if it comes in the original carton I will return if it does not perform.
I read the reviews on the 2617 and thought the 2625 would be better with the advertised 1200:1 contrast vs the 700:1 another customer mentioned in a 2617 review. Well guess what ! Instead of having the 1200:1 contrast, the 2625 only had 600:1 ! ! Imagine my surprise! It was printed right on the box (not mentioned on the specs page that came with the unit. I am VERY, very pleased with Amazons return policy, it was picked up by UPS at my door today for a full credit from Amazon . .. Thank You ! I just ordered a Sony Bravia from Amazon. No more el cheapo for me. . . .
I oredered this TV for my 7 yr old daughter and I'm glad I did, it is a awesome TV despite it not being one of the most popular brands. Great picture quality too, I sat and watched it for a little while just to see how it performs....and I have no complaints so far!! I love Amazon!
