This system is wonderful for a starter set. If you're a college student, new to surround or looking for something simple for a smaller room, this is a great choice. The biggest plus about this system is that I can hook up my Xbox (RCA hook up or digital). Keep in mind that If you hook it up with RCA you can't get surround, but the stereo sounds amazing. I was afraid of Coby from all bad reviews on other systems. This one really exceeded every expectations. Very clear sound, great price and a great DVD player make this perfect.
I'm 21 and live in an apartment so the rooms aren't that big. I have a 100 sq. foot living room. This system is just right. When you finish setting it up (took me about 30 min, running cables and all) you need to put in a DVD like Lord of the Rings to test out the sound. If you leave everything at the default you'll notice that there's almost no bass and the center speaker is WAY over powering. Play around with your setting for a while, you CAN get bass out of it, just look through the menus.

This review contains comparisons between the Sony dvd surround system that this Coby system replaces. I feel that such an approach is necessary with the many unfavorable reviews about this product. I had serious misgivings about buying this system after reading the negative reviews, but settled on this Coby because of another Coby dvd player I own, but more on that later.

My Sony dvd surround sound system is now nearly 7 years old and has been used a great deal, and it finally decided it didn't want to play dvd's any more, so I was in the market for something new.

From a sound perspective, this Coby beats the Sony by miles. Why? Well, the Sony with 1,000 watts of power was excellent at creating a wonderful experience when watching movies with the volume past midway to full blast, but when turned down to a lower level, there was no depth whatsoever. It was only marginally better than the mediocre sound coming from my tinny HDTV speakers. The Coby with just 600 watts of power delivers all the same richness and clarity of sound only heard at high volume on the Sony and the Coby does it at ALL volume levels. Plus, On this Coby there is more separation of the different sounds that are filtered through the various speakers, which is supposed to be a hallmark of all true surround sound systems. The Sony separated the sounds, but they were never this noticeably clearly coming from the different locations. Just goes to prove that it's not about the wattage but how a company utilizes it that counts.

In normal operation, my Sony player was flawed from the moment I started using it. It took extraordinary long periods of time to do anything. Press eject, get a 'please wait' flashing message for 5 seconds before the tray popped out.

I view the Coby DVD938 from a "Value" perspective. Based on the relatively low price I do not expect top of the line performance; however, I do anticipate solid quality from a set of basic features.

The Coby DVD938 delivers on this criteria. Nothing fancy, just basic features with decent sound quality.

I would not recommend this for your main home-theater setup. Instead I would recommend it for a secondary system.

My only "Beef" with this unit is the way in which the audio source defaults to DVD each time the unit is powered off and back on. Add to this a really long delay on the Coby when switching between audio source input (approx. 3-5 seconds) and three audio input sources (DVD, Radio, Line). My primary use is for audio from my Dish satellite receiver. This is the "Line" audio source on the Coby. So, each time I power the unit on I trudge through the process to switch to "Line" audio input... My work-around solution to simply mute the Coby when powering down, then un-mute when powering back on (saves lots of time, but wastes some electricity I suppose).

On the surface, this product seems to be pretty good at first. Then once it is all hooked up, things change a bit. The first thing you have to do is make sure you get all the settings correct or you won't get Dolby Surround on the external input.

The second thing I found out and it still bugs me is that it won't hold the last "source" setting after you put it on standby. There are three source settings; DVD, Radio and Line. I use Line 90% of the time. But every time I shut the system down at night and then start it up again the next day, I have to change the source to line again. This is really just poor design.

The third problem is on some DVDs it will skip and not play them. I thought I had a bad DVD until I bought my Blu-ray player a few weeks later and the DVD played fine on that.

Overall, the sound is great but I wouldn't count on it for playing all DVDs well.

I was disappointed from the very start. The instructions seemed to be written by a 10 year old. The system only had an AV output so I couldn't connect my HDMI cable from my tv. When I finally got it all hooked up only 2 of the speakers worked and the ones that did, didn't sound that great. But after 30 minutes of tinkering I realised that you can only use the "surround sound" when you are using the dvd player.
The response time from the remote to the dvd player took a very long time and sometimes it wouldn't work at all. The dvd player would turn off randomly or change from dvd to radio. The radio stations didn't come in clearly and some didn't come in at all.
The overall quality of this product is crap. I will never buy a Coby system again.
