Consumer review by: Anonymous (newegg.com)

Just as the reviews say ...

 

Inexpensive, true. But that's what I wanted and that's what I got. I just wanted to watch old reruns on it. Don't buy this as a birthday present for Momma. She won't like it. Good enough for geeks, though.

Small and lightweight, cheap, relatively reliable thus far (in the sense that when it gets messed up a factory reset restores functionality).

Just as the reviews say ... remote is clumsy (I keep hitting the Previous Item button when trying to rewind and that triggers the previous video on the disk to play), remote reaches out only to about 15' (not 20'), flimsy disk drawer, if I leave the...

DO NOT BUY!

 

Horrible product, not worth the price. Keep saving money until you can afford the quality product.

It's small

Random freezes during playback that can only be resolved by pulling the plug ; Horrible remote that will work only 6 feet away from the unit and you have to point it EXACTLY at the sensor ; Does not support universal remote, have to use the manufacturer's

Great basic compact DVD Player

 

My DVD player broke, so I purchased this as an inexpensive replacement. Glad I did. The picture is clear, all functions I have tried work correctly.

Only works for a short time period

 

Being in the lower price range, I knew that by purchacing this I wasn't going to get a top of the line Dvd player, and assumed it would quit working pretty soon. I've had it for awhile now, and often times it stops during a movie/ starts skipping. ...

Colby DVD Player

 

The Coby DVD player can play many formats of CD/DVD including NTSC and PAL. It is very reasonably priced and compact. The latter can be a drawback. Most of functions have to be controlled by the remote control which can be a plus to some people and...
