At the price, not bad at all.

 

Sharp picture. Horizontal and vertical hold controls are provided, but the picture is so stable they are not needed. Reasonably good FM performance; awful AM. TV reception is so good I can receive stations 70-80 miles away. Input for use as a security...

Very good picture; surprisingly sensitive tuner

Mild but annoying sync buzz

Just Waiting for a Power Outage

 

In this day of high tech video, we are still at the mercy of Mother Nature to shut down all of our recreation, especially when our favorite tv shows are on. I purchased the Coby CX-TV1 in anticipation of power outages and couldn't have picked a better ...

Lightweight, excellent reception, semi-hackable

Battery storage cover is a little tricky

It got me CTV news during the '03 blackout & Hurricane Juan

 

I bought this TV, well one that looks exactly like it, at Wal-mart, for $30CDN. It was labeled as Wal-mart's house brand "Durabrand" and I've seen similar units at Radio shack, they all come from the same plant in China so it doesn't matter where you...

We're there already?

 

The backseat of my car, populated by one, has now become relatively silent. Rather than the constant chatter, questions, whining, etc. that accompany a long trip (or a short one), my son watches TV. And with a headset plugged in, it is almost like my...

Highly portable, crystal clear picture

None really for the money
