Customer Reviews of Coby DVD-233 Compact Progressive Scan DVD Player
Good deal and good product5/2/2012
This is a very good deal for a DVD player that has a good quality. It is nice and looks kinda compact. It plays different formats of DVDs. The sound quality was not great. I guess that was problem of my Speakers. Overall, It seems like a good product and it works fine.
I bought this product because it works in the UK. I buy DVDs from the US because they are cheaper than in the UK and DVDs of series, e.g. Law and Order, are available in the US before they are in the UK. It was much easier (and cheaper)to buy this than have a DVD player in the UK converted to multi-region. It is a fantastic little player and I would recommend it to anyone who doesn't want anything particularly sophisticated.

We got the DVD player in 2-3 days and it works great. We need to replace a really old Sony DVD player without spending too much. This was a great buy. It's mostly being used by my 4 year old because she loves to watch movies. We are very satisfied.
Colby DVD Player6/9/2008
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 minus to others. My experience with the support from Coby has been poor. I returned to Coby the battery of their portable DVD player because it failed to hold charge. They sent me another battery one month and half later with no explanation. The replacement battery has the same defect.

This is the most vulnerable model from coby. Don't ever dare to buy this. The support extended is too bad. The company does a refund if returned back in 14 days from the date of purchase online. it takes atleast 7 days for the product to be delivered and the product has to be tested day and night putting aside all your work - to be returned in 7 days after receipt. moreover it costs $18 dollars to ship back against the price of $29.99.
Please don't buy this product2/21/2008
guys, please don't buy this product. I have puchased this dvd player in January,2008. First day it worked fine. From second week onwards this dvd player is not working. I have contacted Buy.com. They said after 14 days they won't give gurantee any electronic product.
Purchased three now. Excellent value2/14/2008
Excellent drive. Reads all personal dvds made whether 8x or 16x. had many problems with other drives readng 16x dvds. Also reads dvds that are not playable in my other dvd players. Liked enough that I purchased one more for myself and one for my daughter. The only thing you really need to know is that remote works best if within 6 or 7 feet of unit.
Used it once and that was it. I hope it will be easy to return.
This is a simple and easy to install dvd player, not a fancy one but will serve the purpose.
You get what you pay for. It plays half of the stated types of movies/discs.
Very bad quality10/12/2007
This is of very bad quality. I just got this on 10th Oct 07. The picture quality is OK but the sound is not good at all for the home theatre system. The switch to stop does not work, The tray also does not come out. Over all very bad quality of player. I bought this to use this in In India as it would work internationally, but this is not worth to throw $30 and get lots of dissatisfaction. I would suggest never buy this dvd player.
