Unreliable All the Way


Unit was cheap but, as someone has already said, you get what you pay for.

Avoid this product at all costs.

Problems with Coby R1100


Inexpensive and nice looking box with good feature set.

Frequent hard lockups after recording. Menu screen marred by annoyingly huge "coby" logo.
