    Description
    Not only is the Coby CX-TV1 small and highly portable, it also has the ability to function as more than a television and can work very well as something else, such as a security monitor. This Coby 5-inch TV has a black and white display, which allows users to view a scene with high contrast, something not always an option with a color screen. Of course, this CRT TV is a television, and as such can pick up UHF and VHF signals in order to allow users to enjoy various programming. The Coby CX-TV1 can also receive AM and FM radio signals as a way to allow users to listen to music. Although this Coby 5-inch TV can run on batteries for portable use, it can also plug into a regular outlet or a car or boat outlet for extended use while on the go. With all of these different features, along with the ease of use, this Coby 5-inch TV is a CRT TV that can go anywhere and work in several different ways as a solid and reliable tool.

    Coby 5-Inch NTSC TV Set Excells As Video Monitor

    Created: 08/08/10
    Since this Black & White TV is only NTSC analog and not stereo, I bought it with the intention of using it only for use as a security monitor. Of which I think it excells at. The picture is not bad at all for a B&W 5-inch monitor.
    On the back, it has an audio/video input (1-Yellow RCA female composite for video, 1-White RCA female composite for audio), a female external antenna jack, a push on/push off switch for TV or A/V input, a 12-Volt DC power input for the ac adapter and cigarette lighter adapter and three knobs for controlling vertical hold, brightness and contrast.
    I have never just used the antenna to watch TV as this set is NTSC analog and there are no longer any analog broadcasts in our area. A digital tuner box could be hooked up to this set by either the antenna input (set to channel 3 or 4) or the audio/vidio input.
    The only time I used the antenna input was to watch a picture on a security camera hooked up to a Recoton A/V transmitter. The video camera would be looking out a second floor bedroom window and aimed down at the driveway. The 5-inch Coby TV set would hooked up to a Recoton A/V receiver in the basement on my computer table. Then while using the computer, I could watch the driveway at any time. But using this A/V transmitter and receiver setup was always subject to any weather related disturbances (like lightning, heavy winds, some aircraft overhead).
    The best way I found was to run a hundred foot video cable between the security camera in the bedroom down to the Coby 5-inch TV in the basement.
    I like this set so much that I now have two of these Coby 5-inch TV sets. I tried using both as a monitor with the a/v cable and found that the video signal looses brightness when both sets are hooked up at the same time.
    This TV also has a convenient built-in carry handle on top and an am-fm radio (which I never tried). There is an earphone jack in front (which I never tried) as well as Radio/TV On/Off, Volume control, VHF/Hi, VHF/Lo, and UHF (last three are analog).
    It came with an ac adapter (brick-in-the-wall), cigarette lighter adapter and can use 10 size C batteries.

    Easy to hook-up and use

    Created: 11/03/07
    This television is incredibly easy to hook-up and is the perfect size for someone interested in a TV they can use in a small space such as a car, kitchen, bath or bedroom. Although the tv is black and white, the portability makes this a exceptional purchase. What I was specifically fond of was the portability, naturally - then, the ease hook-up and use, the simplicity of the features, the radio and the carrying handle atop of the set. I believe this one to be an extraordinary purchase for anyone who would like a portable tv without the expense and complexity of many televisions.

    I think Coby makes a fine product for this price. This is a very basic, great little B&W TV. I use the TV to display DVD & VHS flicks on a loop in my room, it's for my own entertainment. It needs to be noted that this particular unit does not feature the RCA audio/video inputs on the back of the monitor. Therefore, DVD/VHS players cannot be hooked up to this Coby model. This is an important & necessary (missing) feature (for me at least.) Otherwise, I highly recommend Coby products.

    Works good while camping in the mountains. Used in NH, but gets TV stations from ME, MA, and NH. Bad picture quality in poor weather, otherwise works good. Good buy for the money spent.
