Coby....not a pleasant memory..

I think they single-handedly brought the (scotch and masking)Tape business to record profits in the 90's...

A lot of my school peers and myself, bought their yellow cassette players and Cd players back then cause The Sony Walkman was way to pricey. Bad Choice , after several days, these things just break apart , right in your hands, that's were the scotch tape comes in to save the day.

Times have change, but I don't consider Coby to become a reliable name brand in the Tablet market, we'll just have see if they send this in to HH for a review.
