3.0 out of 5 stars It's ok for 150$ Yellow AV cord goes in the GREEN for WII System!, November 23, 2012
This review is from: Coby LEDTV3216 32-Inch 720p 60Hz Slim-Bezel LED HDTV (Black) (Electronics)
Got this like many others as a lightning deal ($147). Shipping was fast, came with no cover/amazon packaging though, so if you order this be prepared to sign for it and/or if you have a lax delivery person, to have what is clearly a television sitting on your door step. As for set up, the tv is nice and light weight (not terribly hard to move/lift), is energy star which is nice, and it was very simple to install the base (just need a long phillips screwdriver). Next, the tv itself seems ok for around the 150$ mark, I'd say it's decent enough to be worth up to around $200, however if you have more than that to spend for your 32 inch tv, I'd definitely go another route/brand...and please note as an owner of a sony and lg flat screen tv, this tv in absolutely no way compares to that quality level (you get what you pay for, and with this coby you are getting a fair image at best) My comcast digital cable looks pretty poor on it, it's somewhat pixalated and the choices for image setting/size are somewhat lacking (expect the black bars around your image for many channel choices) I also think the color saturation is weak when i use the cable option, but seems pretty fair/vivid for the wii hookup. Also, my boyfriend says there is some dragging or lag when we play video games, i think it's ok, but I'm not a gamer so thought I should mention that as it may bother people who play a lot of video games. The sound is not super clear to my ear, seems a little bit tinny, but not terrible. All in all, if you are looking for something that is gonna be super responsive and look amazing, this is probably not the best tv for you...if this is however just a second tv or perhaps for a none to picky kiddo, or bedroom tv etc, than this television should be sufficient for the price. Also, as a helpful hint, when you hook up a wii gaming system (or possibly others, I only have WII for reference) to your AV source, please note, this tv has what i consider to be unusual setup but may be typical now, in that you actually don't put the yellow plug on your AV cord into the yellow slot, instead the green slot is utilized...so you use red, white and the green outlet...I had some issue with this at first and for anyone who is (like myself) not super familiar with this application, I thought this information might save someone out there a headache or two. Also, since I just got this, I cannot speak to the longevity of this product but will report back/edit this review at a later date. Happy shopping everyone!

I tried your tip with the green slot but I still can't get my Wii to work on this. Nothing works in the AV hookup. I'm gonna keep trying and maybe call Coby, but if anyone else has had a similar experience and fixed it, I'm all ears.

Sorry to hear that, the only other tip tech support gave me was to unplug the tv and hold down the power button 30 seconds and restart (that didnt work for me) then we did the yellow plug in the green port. Hope it works out for you!

Thank you, thank you, thank you! Mine came last night... must have been the last box on the truck, and when I set it up, I tried to attach my RF Link, which only has the red white and Yellow possibility, and I couldn't get it to work... got frustrated, and decided that today would be better. Before I tried it again, I thought I'd check the reviews to see if others were having that trouble. It was going to be a tv for a basement office, so no cable, and I envisioned it as being a LARGE computer monitor, but your review saved the day. All I had to do was move that yellow one. I've never seen that before either. Thank you for posting.

The cable plugs in to the Green because it is actually a component video connection rather than an RCA. Component has the same Red/White audio cables but instead of just a Yellow to carry all the video data, it uses R/B/G to carry the video colors. Of course, as you found out, if you only have an RCA cable then you just plug Yellow in to Green. If your set-top box has these same component connections, then you can improve the colors on your display by using a component cable. Nice review, thanks!
