Money well spent BUT short life..

 

I purchased the Coby DVD-237 player in 2004 as a Christmas gift for my kids. I chose this player because of its compact size and price. It is extremely small (perfect for a kids room) compared to standard DVD players. It was one of the best prices I...

Size, Price & EXTREMELY easy to use for all ages

Short life, Remote has too many buttons

Returned within the month..

 

It wasn't because I grew tired of it, it just quite working properly. It wouldn't read any discs and kept giving 'No Disc' errors left and right after having this DVD player for 2 weeks or so. The statement 'You what you pay for' applies to this...

Really not that bad...

 

Walking through the grocery store of all places i happen to spot this big section of coby dvd players out the corner of my eye and when I seen the price of $20.00 USD I thought what a piece of crap, there's no way anyone could manufacture a DVD player...

None really, it just works and the price tag is nothing to argue with

Funky remote, but who cares right

Well, plays dvds...But you can find BETTER players that's for sure!

 

I bought this player the other day, because my other one quit on me, (check out my review of the Magnavox MRD500VR to see the whole humorous story there!) and I hate the thought of permanently resorting back to VHS tapes. So, being impatient as I...

Small, slim. Matches black or silver scheme. Very affordable. Nice on-screen setup

Remote is too small and cluttered, needs pointed DIRECTLY at unit. Seems short-lived
