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.

  1. I called Zenith and they said they are still manufacturing these. Does anyone know an on-line site where they can be purchased?

  2. Our box has closed captioned interference from other dtv converter boxes in the neighborhood. Most of the time this does not bother me, but right now I can't watch the home football game. All of the other channels work fine. Just the station that I want to watch is not working right. This has happened at other times with other stations. When we are having this problem, we can switch channels and go back to the original channel, and everything is fine for three seconds, and then half of the screen is blocked.

  3. The best CECB box out there. Its tuner sensitivity is excellent compared to others. The only issues I've seen are occasional signal dropouts and stuttering, but I can't be sure if its the broadcast signal or the box that's doing it. Digital signals are all or nothing.
