1. A surround sound DVD player
The Coby DVD938 puts a progressive scan DVD player inside a complete (but modest) 600 watt, 5.1 surround receiver and attaches five full range speakers and a subwoofer. It even comes with an FM radio, microphone inputs (for karaoke) and a USB port and SD Card slot through which you can play your own media files. It's a good choice for a student away from home for the first time.
