Zenith DTT901 Digital TV Converter Box Reviews

This product was one of the best out there during the transition but it is no longer available for sale and has sold out at all retailers. If you are lucky you may be able to find one on eBay but odds are you'll have to look elsewhere to find a suitable converter boxes to me your digital television needs. As an alternative we highly recommend upgrading to a digital television as that is much easier and will more than likely save you money in the long run, rather than going through a bunch of different converter boxes.

Product Details: It comes with some of the best picture quality out of any TV converter box on the market. It is just as good as any other converter box that we have looked at to date. It provides viewers with a near DVD quality picture that is significantly better than what consumers are use to getting while watching analog television. Overall, the sound quality for this guy is also rated up there near the top and we haven't seen any others that are better, just a few that rival it. Currently it can be had for $45-$60 which makes it ultra cheap after using the government issued coupon card. We actually highly recommend this converter box. All of the features you want and a low price.

It has more features than most boxes in its price range. It comes with easy to adjust closed captioning settings, a universal remote, A/V cables, automatic aspect ratio, and the ability to auto scan for all available channels or tune them one-by one manually. It also comes with analog pass-through in order to allow you to keep any channels that aren't yet required to make the switch.

From an overall standpoint, it is certainly one of the best available for sale when you consider it's picture and sound quality along with its long list of features, and then throw in the ultra cheap price. If you are looking for the best box then there aren't many that can beat this one. Unfortunately though, Zenith limited their production and this one is already becoming one of the 'hard to find' converter boxes. We're not sure why but this seems to be the case with nearly all of the top rated ones on the market.

GE 22729 Digital TV Converter Box Reviews

This box was not one that we recommended as GE realized the reasons why and has since discontinued production of it. It is now sold out at all retailers and finding an alternative would be your best bet.

Product Details: It does not come with the best picture quality out there, just like other GE brand boxes that we have looked it. It is just below the "2nd tier" which means that most other TV converter boxes provide better picture quality. Despite this it is still an upgrade from the average analog broadcast, of course though, as we've said before, achieving this is certainly on feat. It has been reported that its sound quality is very good and rates as well as most others that we have reviewed. Its sound quality is better that the sound quality that you get from traditional analog TV, which again, is to be expected no matter what. Currently this little guy can be purchased for $60-$80 which again is extremely over price. After selling it for several months it is no longer available and it has been upgraded to the GE 23333.

One good thing about this product is that is does have one of the best schedule/programming guides out of all of the different converter boxes that we have looked at. It provides users with show descriptions and show length for several hours of upcoming programming, on all channels. It also allows users to use the simple and quick auto scan function or individually tune channels in order to customize their channel lineup. Lastly, it also comes with adjustable closed captioning, and on box buttons that allow for use when the remote isn't around. It does not come with the ever important analog pass-through function.

Again, our opinion is that this box is certainly good enough to get your TV after the transition but it is lacking a bunch of features and top quality picture display. Why spend more money on an inferior product? Due to these factor we recommend that you stay far far away from it and find something better that also sells at a more reasonable price.

GE 22730 Digital TV Converter Box Reviews

This product is no longer available and has been upgraded multiple times to different versions from GE. Unfortunately almost none of the other models seems to be much different or really any better. 

Product Details: First and foremost it clearly does not come with the best picture quality out there. It is just below the "2nd tier" which means that almost all other boxes provide better picture quality thant his one. Despite this it is still an upgrade from the average analog broadcast, which isn't saying much to be honest. When we hooked this converter box up to our TV it revealed that its sound quality is very good and rates as well as most of the top rated converter boxes that we have reviewed. Its sound quality is better that the sound quality that you get from traditional analog TV, as is the case with every one we have reviewed to this date. It be purchased for $60-$80 which is quite overpriced. You can find much better ones for $20-$30 less and therefore shouldn't consider this one unless your are privy to the GE brand for some reason. With it no longer being available you can consider it's upgraded version which is the GE 23334.

It has one of the best programming guides of any that we have seen on the market, if there is one good thing that we can point out about it. It provides viewers with show descriptions and length for a few hours of programming on all channels. It allows users to use the auto scan function or individually tune channels, so that they can personalize there channel set.. It also comes with adjustable closed captioning, and on box buttons. This converter box does not come with analog pass-through.

We suppose that this product is good enough to get the job done but it is lacking features and top picture quality. Beyond this it is also one of the most expensive converter boxes out there. Due to these factor we recommend that you stay away from it and instead consider the other options that come at a lower price and with more features.
