Decent player with nice extras, Sep 28 2010
This Coby DVD player is a perfectly decent entertainment unit. It plays standard DVDs as well as DivX and Xvid files perfectly, and best of all, it can play files directly from a USB stick or SD card. It's difficult to find units with USB and SD slots, and that's the main reason I purchased this model instead of a better-known brand name.
A few minor downsides: The remote control is quite basic and cannot control your TV or other components, so you need to have two remotes in your hand at all times. And I cannot find the proper codes to control it with my universal remote.
Moreover, the on-screen display function for photos, DivX videos and MP3 files is a little buggy, so you can't see the full title of any file except the top one.
One caveat: I've only had this DVD player for a month or so, and I've never had one that lasted more than three or four years. I've currently got three in a bag ready to go to the recycling centre. Only time will tell if this one is more robust.
