  • Good DVD player and recorder

    Oct 7, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: (1) Reliable recorder, (2) progressive scan output look great, and (3) it's inexpensive!
    Cons: (1)louder than normal motor hum, (2)slow start-up, (3)IR from remote requires line of site.

    Summary: I bought this for $100 @ Fry's and had much success with it! I use it mainly to copy from my dvr. I use the s-video input and get great copies. The unit has never locked up on me during playback. It has locked up during record a couple time (out ... read more

  • Problems with Coby R1100

    Nov 21, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Inexpensive and nice looking box with good feature set.
    Cons: Frequent hard lockups after recording. Menu screen marred by annoyingly huge "coby" logo.

    Summary: I just recently picked up a Coby DVR-R1100. It seemed like a great deal and had the features I was looking for. But I've had a lot of problems with it. I bought it with the intention of using it to offload programs from my Cable DVR box as well as ... read more

    Pros: It has been good in backing up my home movies from 20 years of VHS.
    Cons: Locks up occassionaly; Manual stinks; Editing-Fair, Gets Hot

    Summary: Not the BEST DVD Recorder BUT it beats sitting at a Computer and transferring hours of VHS and making adjustments like brightness, etc with a video capture card. I am exclusively using it to transfer VHS to DVD. Home movies of my family over 20 years. ... read more

    Pros: Thin Profile, look good
    Cons: Noisy, not user friendly, poor quality, doesn't last

    Summary: Let me start by saying, this was a gift and not a purchase. This unit has a nice look with a thin profile. That's as good as it gets. Menus are less than user friendly, hard to find what your looking for. Had many problems creating titles on ... read more

  • Price too good to be true

    Rated Show
    Pros: Cheap price
    Cons: Cheap quality

    Summary: I bought the Coby DVD-R1100, just wanting a very simple DVD Recorder to replace my VHS TV recording. Unfortunately, the good price and 90 Day Warranty match too well. Along with the other problems other buyers experienced which required you to unplug ... read more

  • Unreliable All the Way

    Pros: Unit was cheap but, as someone has already said, you get what you pay for.
    Cons: Avoid this product at all costs.

    Summary: Bought the DVD-R1100 last spring and it worked great for about ten hours of recording, then it stopped functioning altogether as if now power was getting to the unit. Sent it back to the company and got a new one but then the remote failed. Without the ... read more

  • ABSOLUTE JUNK; DIES AFTER A COUPLE OF MONTHS

    Pros: Okay while it worked, FOR 2 WEEKS!!!
    Cons: Problems begin after two weeks; become more frequent; unit dies. Guaranteed! No support.

    Summary: I bought this recorder and it worked fine for a couple of weeks and then the problems began. Hang ups that could only be solved by unplugging unit, failure to respond to commands from remote, etc. First, problems were sporadic, then became more ... read more

  • Failed after 2 hours of use, no customer support help

    Pros: Machine worked for two hours.
    Cons: Machine failed after minimal use. No support by Coby.

    Summary: I used this device once for 2 hours about 8 months after I bought it. It worked fine that night. Two months later, it won't even power up. I called and spoke with "customer support" and got the "out of warranty, nothing we can do" reply with the tag ... read more

    Pros: I's cheap.
    Cons: It's crap.

    Summary: At the low price, I had low expectations- but this unit was very disappointing for 40 days or so and then just died altogether. I don't think it's even worth putting back in the box to seek their service that has already been rated 'Poor'. I'll ... read more

    Pros: Inexpensive unit, looks good
    Cons: Unit is very unstable

    Summary: I Bought the Coby DVR-R1100 to do all my VCR transfers and video recordings. I purchased the unit from 110-220.com. I thought it was a great deal, wrong answer. I've had nothing but problems with it. I started recording and it just stopped for no reason. ... read more

    Pros: Cheap. Looks good on the shelf.
    Cons: CHEAP. Poorly made. Lousy warranty.

    Summary: We bought two of these from Alco on sale at $100. That was exactly $100 too much. Both died shortly after the 90 day warranty passed. Our daughter's lights up, but does nothing else. Ours is just dead. Neither one recorded even ten ... read more

    Pros: Looks nice, nice features, inexpensive, thin, 5.1 out
    Cons: Locks up, stickers to scrape off

    Summary: 10 minutes into playing the first DVD it locked up with a frozen picture. None of the buttons on the remote or on the player/recorder itself did anything. I finally had to unplug it and start all over again by finding where I left off with the scene ... read more
