"A great converter with great reception."4.5 starson by schmeckpeper
Pros: Power and Channel on/off keys on box
Ability to turn TV on/off from the remote
Fast Channel Changing
Cons: Programming guide could be better but typicaly when I am surfing what's on and what's next is all I need anyway.
Volume changes input volume not actual TV volume like the RCA
Summary: Based on the CNET reviews I originally wanted to buy the DTVPAL, but once I found out it was not energy star compliant and could not control the TV power it fell out of favor with me. I then decided I was going to buy the RCA. I liked the ability to control the actual TV volume with the remote control and the ability to see all of the channels on the programming guide at one time. Then I read all of the reviews of people having problems with them failing. Since I was planning on storing this box until I need it in February and the fact that the warranty is only 90 days I decided not to take that chance. That coupled with the cheap plastic look, no aspect ratio button on the remote and CNET saying they thought the Zenith had slightly better reception led me to choose the Zenith.
While I have no other DTV converters to compare it to, I do have an HDTV converter. I live in the Chicago area and anyone else who lives here knows Channel 2 is notoriously weak. My HDTV converter will pick up channel 2 sometimes but more often than not it breaks up or has no signal. The Zenith DTT901 has been solid on channel 2. Also my HDTV box is very slow changing channels. The DTT901 is much faster.
I still have one more coupon left and I will be using it on another Zenith DTT901.
