Portable DVD players should give a good viewing experience and withstand the abuses of travel. This player, for the price, excels in the former and lags in the latter.
I like its trim size and large screen. It can easily fit in your book bag or briefcase. The picture is sharp and bright. The battery life is decent, though I have not watched a full-length movie on it. The volume is ample for both spoken and musical material.
I didn't like the fact that it defaults to widescreen all of the time. Most of my DVDs are SD, so I have to change the frame aspect ratio every time. Not a big deal, just an annoyance.
Another issue I have with it is the lack of a display button on the unit itself. Many times, I leave the remote control behind (since it is another small item that I can easily lose). I have basic arrow functionality, but no means of displaying what track number I am on. Oftentimes, I have to stop playing the DVD, and it would be nice to know which track I can jump to when restarting.
When on battery, it stops spinning within a minute or two and goes into screensaver mode to save battery power.
This unit only serves well in an environment that does not require it to move, such as an apartment or dorm room. It is not made to handle the rough and tumble world of portability. This is the second Coby DVD player I've owned (my first was a Coby TF-DVD7100) and the second Coby player to die 4 months into ownership. The manufacturer's warranty is a convenient 3 months.
Each time, the laser would fail to reach the outer parts of the DVD. It could only play the first part and then stop when attempting to play later chapters.
In each case, I bought a Mack Camera warranty, and each time it served me well. When I sent in the unit for repair for the first unit, I was told that it was unfixable. Mack Camera refunded my money. I am now in the process of boxing up my current unit, anticipating once again, that it will be unfixable.
Hence I have sworn off Coby DVD players. If you must get one, be sure to pick up a portable DVD player repair policy (like Mack Camera). You do not have to buy the warranty with the unit - you have 30 days to get one, and you can register it with Mack Camera at any time (despite their strong warning to register immediately). You can buy a Mack Camera warranty from any store that sells it, as long as the warranty description matches the item.
So if you plan to keep your portable DVD player on the move, don't buy this unit. This unit is built to last until the expiration of the manufacturer's warranty (3 months).
this player may be little but the sound and picture is huge!It has a rechargable battery,it also came with headphones and a remote control and I won the bid for a price I couldnt believe.I would buy another coby dvd player in a heart beat.It is great,and this one was used, a brand new one..I cant imagine how wonderful that would be!
Great Little unit It played NTSC DVDs on 110 and DC on plane, and PAL 220 in Vietnam, all in the same day, without any complicated programing or switching. Battery staying power good, color, volume, all good. Displayed digital JPEG pictures very well. Worked great, plugged into the TV, sharing photos. Instructions not clear enough for an old klutz, but unit is not that complicated and trial and error works well.
Would I buy it again? Yep, already did./70LEW
My wife bought one of these for me when I was in the hospital earlier this year. I used both purchased and burned DVD's with no problems. Without the remote, the buttons are a little tricky but -- unlike with a lot of DVD players -- you CAN do most everything without the remote. I found the sound volume to be weak and had to use headphones for the most part. The picture is very bright and vivid. The screen size is good for up to about 4 feet away. The battery is rechargeable and lasts about 2 hours. This was money well spent.
I like the coby dvd player for work its a time consumer when you have a lot of time to waste. It plays most of my dvd's. I like it a lot. The only thing i would change about it is the sound it makes when loading a dvd. It is sometimes loud. Thats all i have.
