Chose this product because of the value (price vs features). Overall I got what I wanted /expected.

Features I was looking for:
-ability to play DivX movies
-HDMI connection
-Surround sound

Bonus features:
-USB Connection

Annoyances:
-vast sound difference between radio and other sources - need dvd player approx level 30, radio level 2. The default setting seems to be level 35, so switching between sources when you turn it on is a pain if you don't turn down the volume
-volume knob on the unit is erratic
-no random selection when playing music (off USB drive)

Installation was easy, works OK with my TV, plays DVD's and videos well, good radio reception.

I bought this product and it looked great just what I was hoping for, set it up and it worked great for a couple weeks, then while trying to watch a DVD, lines started appearing just like you would see on a old VHS when the tracking was off, there was nothing I could do to fix this, I tried different DVDs and the same thing happened, but when I put the same DVDs in a different DVD player it played fine so it was not the DVD it was the system. Then while I was watching T.V it suddenly let out a loud high pitch squeal no matter what I did I could not get it to stop. I had to power it off and then back on. When I turned it back on it worked fine for a few minutes then the squeal was back. It was so loud I thought my smoke detectors were going off. So I realized I could no longer use this as a DVD player or surround sound for my TV and I just used it for the radio, then while listening to the radio, out of nowhere the music suddenly stops and a loud static noise blares from the speakers, I thought that maybe it was the station so I tried to change the station and the system was frozen I had to unplug it and wait a while before I plug it back in and tried again. To no avail the same thing happened so I unplugged the system and never plugged it back in. It is garbage...

I've owned and hooked up a few 1,000 watt home theater systems in the past without problem. NOTHING compared to this pile of junk. First off, it's false advertisement to promote that a system is 1,000 watts when it sounds like it's 250 watts! Also, I'm no techie but I have enough sense to install a basic home theater system but with this, it was kind of difficult. And, the poorly written instruction manual didn't help at all. The rear speaker wires were too short, even for my master bedroom where it was being installed. It was very frustrating to get the thing to work. When I was finally able to get some sound to come out, I could only watch a DVD or use the FM radio. Despite various methods of hooking up the wiring and cables, I still couldn't get sound for normal TV (Verizon Fios). The remote control was also confusing to operate. There was such a long lag time between sources and to make matters worse, I had to constantly use the TVs remote to switch input sources. That's ridiculous. This is a VERY poorly made item. Coby should be ashamed of this garbage. They obviously didn't test this before putting it on the market. I could kick myself for not reading the reviews especially since I ALWAYS read reviews before buying anything. I guess I got hyped after seeing such a low price for a 1,000 watt system. After a couple hours of battling with this junk, I promptly went to Amazon's website to request a Return Authorization label. It was a pain to pack it all back up, then haul it off to UPS. The good thing was that Amazon promptly refunded my money. No more impulse buys for me. If you're contemplating buying this, please do yourself a favor and skip it!

This is a pretty good sound system for the money. I got it mainly because it plays USB drives and DIVX. This means that I watch videos straight off my flash drive. This was easy to setup, but only has 1 input, so everything has to go through the TV. It sounds pretty good but not a lot of bass. The sub woofer does not have it's own power cord. Overall, I am happy with this system for the price. It is a good value system.

I bought this for my ama and she put it in the living room.. it works great, a little complicated for people that don't know much about electronics.. settings are easy and simple that's if u read the manuals hahaha... this system looks elegant and i love how u can CAN mount this on the walls by just screwing a screw on the wall and attaching speakers... dvd works great, playing music or videos on a mmc works well, have not tryed usb card, usb card might be better then a mmc card... with a good price u can't go wrong..... o, fast shipping... thanks...

First of alll the USB connection is in the back of the system which makes it very difficult to access. Anyways I got a USB adaptor and it does not work. It still dont work when I put the drive directly into it. The manual says press source and you will see USB on the dispaly and I only see "line". When I press USB nothing happens. I can see that the drive is connected but because the light on the drive flashes.But, no sound. Also the system has a very long delay.which is very annoying. I regret this buy. The only thing I like about it is the actual look.
