          It's in the kid's room. It's very compact.

          I had an old DVD player that wouldn't read many DVDs. This DVD player didn't have reading problem with any DVD.

            Works very well! A few weeks in and no problem. Nice and compact, excellent playback. Not all the features of a high-end but well worth the money!

                  What you see is what you get with the DVD233 Compact DVD Player by Coby. We needed a simple, straightforward PAL player to test playback of PAL DVDs we burned at the office and this player does exactly that.
