Coby TFDVD1574 Review: 15” LCD HDTV

Up for Review: Coby TFDVD1574 LCD TV. Get the benefit of watching television along with movies by purchasing the Coby TFDVD1574. Although it is not a very big TV, it can be used in small rooms like the kitchen or office. Besides, you can watch movies at your discretion with the help of the side-loading in-built DVD player. The USB/SD card slots will help you to access digital files. You can connect your digital camera and view the photos along with your family.

A review shows that the Coby TFDVD1574 has full range stereo speakers which provide very good sound effects. You can sit anywhere in a room and still hear the dialogues distinctly. The video also lives up to expectations. The picture quality is pretty good and the images are very sharp because of the small display. The display resolution is 1280 x 800 which is good enough for the television programs. A 1080p resolution is always preferable for watching movies on the DVD player. But the resolution provided is good enough for the small TV.

Coby TFDVD1574 Features and Specifications Review:

  • 15” display
  • Integrated slot-loading DVD player
  • Dual ATSC/NTSC tuners
  • HDMI digital connection
  • 15-pin VGA interface
  • Digital comb filter
  • Multi-language onscreen display
  • Wall-mountable design
  • Full range stereo speakers

This small package from Coby also provides for an HDMI connection. It is easy to connect a camcorder or a gaming device to watch high definition pictures. There is also a VGA interface for the HDTV to be used as a computer monitor. Other notable features include V-chip parental control, Closed caption and electronic program guide. Dual tuners of ATSC/NTSC help to receive over-the-air free signals and watch your favorite programs on TV.

A contrast ratio of 500:1 is alright for the images but the black levels could be much better. Coby can put in some effort for increasing the contrast ratio if it wants to stay in competition with the high-flying Samsung, LG, Sony and the other big names in HDTV. However, the Coby TFDVD1574 can be obtained for just $177.99 MSRP which is within the grasp of most viewers. Its low price along with all the basic features and an in-built DVD player make it an attractive choice for many people. gives Coby TFDVD1574 8/10 stars!
