Introduction

At CES this year, Coby had an enormous sign and a nice booth right in the center of the show floor, so we thought to ourselves, maybe this company is stepping it up this year. Maybe we should give them a shot, and see how they compare against the leading television brands because they obviously want to position themselves in that category. We picked up the TFTV4028 ($600 MSRP, found for less online), a 1080p, TFT display. We were hoping this Coby would open our minds, make our hearts grow three-sizes larger, make us more appreciative of the capabilities of the underdog brand. We ran our tests and, unfortunately, many of our cynical doubts were confirmed.
