While I appreciate good audio and video I am not per se an electronics buff. I require whatever product buy to perform as advertised and operate for a reasonable period of time.
This is my 2nd Coby DVD-224 player and I purchased it because the first one met my basic requirements. For reasons unknown the remote on my first one went missing (probably ran away with the remote for an unused TV) and frankly I was able to buy an entire new unit on ebay for slightly more than the cost of a new remote. This in fact ended up being much less than I paid for the original DVD.

I purchased my second Coby-224 because,in short, the Coby-224 does everything I require of a DVD at a low cost. The picture is outstandingly good, the various features all do what they are supposed to do, and the audio is as good as my equipment can reproduce. Overall, the Coby-224 has capabilities which I have as yet not discovered or at least, not used.
My singular complaint is more with me than the unit: while it is easy to use, I haven't used it often enough to have automatic response programed into me and thus it seems a trifle slow at times while I look up which button to push.
Overall, this is an excellent basic DVD player for someone who is not attempting to re-stage the film.
I got this for my son's room because it is inexpensive and compact. So far, it has worked very well for him. It has had no problem playing any of the discs we have put in it. The unit is very easy to setup and use.
Whatever you do, do not lose the remote! Otherwise you will not be able to perform many of the functions of the DVD player.
I was hoping that this DVD player could be vertically mounted, but it cannot. The disc tray does not have the grooves to hold the disc in place when it is mounted vertically.
I bought this dvd for the kids room. It is the right size and it is very easy for the kids to use. I am so glad that this dvd had sure easy features. The quality of the on screen movie is excellent. Thank You.
This unit is very compact with all the basic features of products three times as expensive.
The Colby DVD-224 DVD Player meets all my needs in performance and cost as part of a bedroom video media entertainment center.
What I loved about it is how it opens every time you press the remote control to open or close and it works great even when I put a dvd disc on or cd disc for music anyway the reason I bought it is because I go to school and some teachers I know don't have dvd players which lecture in it they only have vhs player so that's the reason I bought it.
