    Amazon.comProduct Description

    Don't be fooled by its slim, 1.7-inch chassis: Zenith's DVB318 DVD player delivers big-time entertainment. The firmware-upgradeable DVB318 handles most media formats and delivers them to both standard- and high-definition TVs. Play your MP3 and WMA CDs, homemade DVDs, JPEG image CDs, and of course your commercial DVDs--all will look and sound great.

    Whether your living room is currently home to an HDTV or you're merely thinking of "someday," the DVB318 is set to deliver the full potential of your DVDs. A special video processing circuit upconverts all DVD signals to high-definition 1080i (more than a thousand lines of horizontal resolution) for use with compatible televisions. And, if you're using a DVI-compliant high-definition set, feed your TV the DVB318's DVI (digital visual interface) output for a direct digital connection between your source and your monitor.

    The unit also performs progressive scanning at slightly lower resolution. Referred to as 480p for the number of horizontal lines that compose the video image, progressive scanning creates a picture using twice the scan lines of a conventional DVD picture, giving you higher resolution and sharper images while eliminating nearly all motion artifacts. Composite- and S-video outputs bring compatibility with nearly any television.

    A single set of left/right analog-audio outputs channel audio to Dolby Pro Logic receivers and stereo televisions. Both Dolby Digital and DTS 5.1-channel surround-sound signals can be routed through the player's digital-audio outputs (1 each coaxial and optical) for direct connection to a full-featured audio/video receiver. The player's onboard 96 kHz/24-bit digital-to-analog audio converter ensures optimum decoding of all disc formats.

    If you don't have a surround receiver or six-channel speaker setup, you can still make every movie night the ultimate experience: the player simulates surround sound through two speakers (even the stereo speakers on your TV).Other features include CD-ROM-upgradeable firmware (for compatibility with future formats and features), full-motion picture zoom (4x to 16x), random and repeat playback, closed-caption support, and accommodation for interactive story (and multi-story) DVD programs.

    Amazon.com Product Description

    Zenith's 17-inch L17W36 LCD doubles as both a PC and an HDTV monitor. It has a built-in NTSC tuner and it accepts cable/antenna, HDTV, satellite dish and NTSC video sources. The L17W36 features a 1280 x 960 pixel resolution, a 16:9 aspect ratio, built-in speakers (5 watts per channel), 3-line digital comb filter, Dolby virtual surround sound, and multiple inputs for DVD players, game consoles, and more.

    With its 400:1 high-contrast ratio, the LCD emits sharp contrast between light and dark images. The 450 candelas per square meter (cd/m2) brightness level renders a distinctly bright picture--even in light-drenched environments. The picture-in-picture (PIP) function enables you to put a smaller picture--called the inset--on the larger screen.

    The DCDi line doubler (manufactured by industry leader Faroudja) provides double the number of scan lines to create a cinema-like effect and eliminates jagged lines and artifacts along diagonal lines--creating a sharper, crisper picture.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Picture, Wide HDTV, PIP, PC monitor under 1K!
    Our review is based on the fact our unit has not broken down in the month we've had it (unlike the other 1 review currently published here). We love this set. The picture quality is superb, even with SDTV via Time Warner digital cable. HDTV output is fabulous. Nice bright images with good contrast without the usual "noise" which was our primary criteria for choosing this unit. Sound quality is good for a bedroom but there are no audio outs for those wanting to add additional speakers (we didn't). It is VESA compliant and is under $1K usually. It also has PIP with an additional tuner (VCR) and can be used as a computer monitor. What more can you ask for a thousand bucks.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Nice while it lasted!
    After only 3 weeks of infrequent use, this TV failed. All of a sudden there was no picture upon powering up. Prior to this I found that the clock setting feature didn't work. Obtaining service has been a nightmare. Zenith sent me to the closest service center, 30 miles away. A few hours after dropping off the TV, the service center called to inform me that Zenith told them it could only be serviced by the factory! Zenith refused to replace it with a new one. I've been given no idea of an estimated return date. Other than that, the picture was very nice, programming was easy and the set's attractive. Plugging in cables was difficult. There's only a headphone audio out, not left & right channels. Switching between input devices was slow as was changing channels. Setting favorite channels was very slow. Update: received TV-picture OK but clock still not working. Service Dept. said clock chip a known defect, but no date for fix. Why didn't they send me a new set with a good clock? After several calls to Service & Customer Service, Zenith agreed to refund the full purchase price upon return (again) of the set. Could've been much worse, I guess. Contacting Zenith was easy & the staff were pleasant and helpful, but I still wasted much time on this. Can anybody suggest a TV to replace this one? ... Read more

    Amazon.com Product Description

    The L23W36 widescreen HD-ready TV, designed around Zenith's first 23-inch LCD screen, features Super IPS technology, Faroudja DCDi De-Interlacer processing, and a 50,000-hour, long-life screen lamp. This innovative television lets you switch from TV to PC viewing at the touch of a button, and it uses a truly flat LCD (liquid-crystal display) to deliver razor-sharp, distortion-free images.

    The Benefits of HDTV
    Standard TVs (SDTVs) display a maximum of 480 lines using the interlaced scan method, which creates a picture with alternating lines of information.
    Enhanced-definition TVs (EDTVs) display a maximum of 480 lines using the progressive-scan method, which creates an image using consecutive lines of information for a crisp, flicker-free picture.
    High-definition TVs (HDTVs) display a maximum of either 1,080 interlaced lines or 720 progressively scanned lines for the sharpest possible image.
    The set receives NTSC broadcast signals for off-air viewing, while its ample inputs accept feeds from cable/antenna, HDTV set-top boxes, satellite dishes, and of course your personal computer. Pictures render in extremely detailed, 16:9 aspect-ratio 1,280 x 768 resolution, which is perfect for HDTV broadcasts and progressive-scan DVD outputs and video games. You also get high brightness (450 cd/m2) for a vivid picture even in light-drenched environments. Inputs include high-resolution component-video, S-video, computer RGB, RF, and composite-video/analog stereo audio.

    Super In Plane Switching (Super IPS) technology (made by Zenith's parent company, LG Electronics) delivers unprecedented horizontal and vertical viewing angles of 176 degrees--virtually equaling those of CRTs--all the while ensuring better, clearer pictures from off-center seating positions than previously possible with an LCD. Super IPS uses a switching mode that treats light passing through the display at an angle virtually the same as light passing straight through the display. As a result, the set renders brightness, contrast, and color much more evenly, regardless of where you sit.

    Picture in picture (PIP) lets you watch two channels at once, imposing a full-color inset picture in a corner of the main picture. A three-line digital comb filter enhances resolution by removing blurred edges between colors and reducing dot crawl (tiny, moving dots of color along a sharp color separation in a vertical line, as in a depiction of a character's striped T-shirt).

    The set also uses Faroudja's DCDi Processor, which upconverts standard video signals (480i) to progressive-scan 480p signals, eliminating the jagged edges along diagonal lines. Progressive-scan signals create a picture using twice the scan lines of a conventional pictures, giving you higher resolution and sharper images while eliminating nearly all motion artifacts.

    Parental control with V-Chip (a programmable feature that uses the U.S. standard content-advisory system to exclude viewing of specific programs or program types) helps you keep young eyes off mature content. Other features include Dolby Virtual Surround processing for simulating surround sound from the set's two 7-watt speakers, an onscreen graphic equalizer for tailoring the sound to your preference, and a long, 50,000-hour estimated lamp life.

    More about DCDi
    DCDi (Directional Correlational Deinterlacing) eliminates the jagged edges (also known as "jaggies" or "the staircasing effect") that appear when standard interlaced video is deinterlaced and viewed on a progressive-scan display.

    This animation is an interlaced representation of a tomato in motion. DCDi technology eliminates the jagged vertical edges that are inevitable when interlaced video is viewed on a progressive-scan display.
    Moving film to digital video is a complex process, wrought with inherent limitations. The most notable visual artifacts (an artifact is an unintended visual flaw created by some underlying technical process) are jagged edges. This undesirable effect is now proactively eliminated, during playback, by angle-correlated vector interpolation algorithms.

    Typical motion video processing relies on something called intra-field spatial interpolation to generate the missing lines of video from interlaced sourced material. This approach successfully suppresses motion artifacts; however, moving images and diagonal edges (actually, all edges which are not strictly horizontal or vertical) create jagged edge artifacts. While missing lines are successfully generated, the information generated does not exactly match that of the edges of the object originally filmed.

    DCDi takes the idea of interpolation to a much higher level. It interpolates based on how objects are moving in a scene, basing its calculations on the "big picture" instead of relying on a limited mathematical model. More specifically, it identifies all of the moving edges in a scene while adjusting the angle of interpolation at each pixel so that the interpolation always follows the edge instead of crossing it. This revolutionary approach not only eliminates jagged edges, but also achieves something that has not been available in affordable systems until now: true-to-life looking images from an interlaced source.

    5-0 out of 5 stars What a bargain
    I was looking for 17 to 19 inch flat monitors for my pC that had PIP capabilities with Television included. I was disappointed in the choices and quickly saw that to get all the features I wanted I had to look in the $999 to $1400 range. While shopping I found one of the Zeniths that had been recently returned and was on sale as an open item @ Best Buy for $1500.
    I jumped on it (and the $200 BB warranty). Came on Amazon and could not believe how good a deal I actually got. Enuff braggin.

    Setup a breeze. PIP choices are many and awesome. Great on PC, TV so far. Can't wait to run video ins, hook to DVD or X-Box, etc. No complaints. Highly recommend for your next monitor choice.
    It really looks very cool sitting on my desk too!

    3-0 out of 5 stars Great Product - but the switch panel stopped working
    The switch panel was not working after I tried it, 38 days after purchase. My mistake that I didn't test when I brought it. Kept using the remote control. Amazon refused to take it back after 30 days, so had to fall back on warranty. The product has now gone back to LG for repairs. LG support was pretty good though - so far.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great TV at this price point.
    I am very happy with this TV. I currently had a very old 1983 Commodore 13" monitor as my video monitor and eventually wanted to replace it with a 40" plasma monitor. I decided to buy this LCD-TV while I saved money to buy the plasma monitor. Great idea! This LCD-TV is the perfect stop gap measure for me. It has the resolution I require (1280 x 768) for my HDTV set top box and DVD viewing needs and the computer input allows me to display my laptop computer which, while I originally had no plan to do so, is a nice feature. If you need a high resolution monitor at a medium size, this LCD-TV is a good buy at this price point.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best TV find of my life
    I can't say enough about the picture quality of this Zenith.
    Better than the 23" Sony when viewing side to side. Nice styling and easy to use. I just love this television. ... Read more

    Saving space while simplifying your entertainment hookups, the XBV443 juggles most forms of entertainment media, from VHS videocassettes (recording and playback) and high-resolution DVD performance to CD, CD-R, CD-RW, MP3 and WMA CD, and JPEG image CD so you can enjoy custom slideshows from your digital photos in the comfort of your living room. The unit's handy front-panel audio/video jacks simplify hookup with camcorders, video game consoles, and other devices.

    Whether your living room is currently home to an HDTV or you're merely thinking of "someday," the XBV443 stands ready to deliver the full potential of your DVDs. Progressive scanning, referred to as 480p for the number of horizontal lines that compose the video image, creates a picture using twice the scan lines of a conventional DVD picture, giving you higher resolution and sharper images while eliminating nearly all motion artifacts. Composite- and S-video outputs bring compatibility with nearly any television.

    Other disc features include 4x to 16x moveable zoom, variable high-speed scan (2x, 4x, 16x, and 100x), parental locks, bookmarking, 20-track CD programming, and repeat play.

    The VCR section offers 4 heads (for clear slow-motion and stop-action features) and stereo sound. The deck's 19-micron video heads maintain clarity during recording or playback in EP (extended play) mode, auto digital tracking adjusts for optimal picture settings for every tape you load, and auto clock set maintains the correct time and even adjusts for daylight savings. A handy Instant Recording button commences recording with a single touch.

    For the simplest hookup with your TV, you can use a single RCA composite-video connection to handle both DVD and VCR outputs. If you want a higher-quality connection from the DVD player, you can use a component- or S-video cable to an additional input on your TV (the VCR image requires a composite-video or RF connection with your TV). You can choose between an optical and a coaxial digital-audio output to feed a surround-sound signal to your Dolby Digital- or DTS-decoding audio/video receiver.

    If you don't have a surround receiver or 6-channel speaker setup, you can still make every movie night the ultimate experience: the unit simulates surround sound through 2 speakers (even the stereo speakers on your TV).

    Amazon.com Product Description

    Zenith's rear-projection R40W46 offers a scintillating 40-inchwidescreen (16:9) image bolstered by a host of picture-enhancingtechnologies. The set offers full HDTV resolution, accepting decoded1080i or 480p video signals from DTV set-top boxes or progressive-scanDVD players and satellite receivers. It also upconverts standardinterlaced (480i composite- and S-video) signals, bringing VCRs,nonprogressive DVD players, cable boxes, and other entertainmentdevices up to 1080i or 480p resolution.

    Progressive scanning, referred to as 480p for the number of horizontal lines that compose the video image, creates a picture using twice the scan lines of a conventional DVD picture, giving you higher resolution and sharper images while eliminating nearly all motion artifacts. The R40W46 also performs 3:2 pull down. DVD mastering introduces a common distortion when adjusting 24 frames-per-second movies to 30 fps video; 3:2 pull down digitally corrects this distortion, removing the redundant information to display a film-frame-accurate picture.

    The set's HD-grade optics improve brightness and focus and reduce the cabinet depth to a manageable 17.9 inches. HD Focus eliminates the need to manually adjust the picture--just select HD Focus from the onscreen menu to automatically adjust the picture from center to edge. Specifically developed for digital program content, the R40W46's HD-grade, high-output CRTs maximize brightness and picture detail. Further, the unit's improved digital display eliminates most of the standard video artifacts that afflict typical analog upconversion, or line doubling (such as pixelization).

    Velocity-scan modulation improves the definition at picture edges, creating sharper images by slowing the CRT (cathode-ray tube) beam's horizontal scanning during demanding work--say, when rendering transitions from light to dark parts of an image--and speeding it up when scanning easily rendered sections, like broad dark areas. Fine (0.52 mm) dot pitch ensures a detailed picture.

    A pair of 1080i-capable component-video input grants optimum connection with high-definition devices, while standard composite- and S-video inputs accommodate all DVD players and most other video devices. (For older VCRs and cable boxes, there's also a threaded RF input.) A set of rear AV inputs (with fixed-level analog audio) lets you hook the set up with your audio/video receiver, while front-panel AV inputs makes it easy to plug in a camcorder, digital camera, or gaming console for spontaneous use.

    You get stereo audio (with an impressive 15 watts per channel from AV sources or broadcast programming via Multi-channel Television Sound (MTS), which permits broadcasters to encode stereo audio within the video portion of TV programming signals. Not equipped with a surround receiver? Built-in Dolby Virtual Surround simulates enveloping surround sound from the set's two speakers or, when hooked up, from your stereo system.

    The set also features built-in rear carrying handles (making it a cinch to move), a trilingual onscreen display (English, Spanish, French), closed-caption display, two-level mute, V-Chip parental control, a sleep timer, an on-timer, and an illuminated universal remote control.

    An excellent choice for those on a budget who want in on the surging market of hdtv's. It has enough inputs to cover dvd, vcr, cable box or satellite receiver. Easy to switch aspect ratio from 16:9 to 4:3. Did have some problems due to no explanation of which audio feature was best among the selections available. The picture is a bit fuzzy seen from extremely close range, but fine overall quality. Bought this tv as a second hdtv for the bedroom and it "fits the bill". Excellent "bang for the buck".

    3-0 out of 5 stars Okay for the money
    Bought this TV in early January. The box itself is very attractive, not bulky and very easy to set up. It has handles on the back and wheels on the bottom that make moving it around very easy for two people. My wife and I were able to move it all around our living room with ease to get it in the right place. I was dissappointed with the picture. It is not as sharp as I was expecting. We just watched the super bowl on it and the players, numbers and certain details from the mid- to far away camera angles are blurry and fuzzy. When the camera views are up close, there is no problem, the picture is very sharp, but from a distance it appears to be out of focus. While it is still early, I guess I would say for the price it is a good buy, but in retrospect, I think I would have spent the additional money to get me into the next higher quality category. ...

    Catlog: CE
    Manufacturer: Zenith
    Sales Rank: 21172
    US | Canada | United Kingdom | Germany | France | Japan

    Amazon.com Product Description

    The Zenith C32V36 HDTV monitor features a 32-inch flat, fine-pitch picture tube that provides a sharp picture and offers the highest-resolution capability possible for viewing HD content in 1080i or 480p formats.

    The C32V36 offers a number of high-definition features that provide amazing picture clarity. The DCDi line doubler (manufactured by industry leader Faroudja) provides double the number of scan lines to create a cinemalike effect, and eliminates jagged lines and artifacts along diagonal lines--creating a crisper image. The Digital Visual Interface (DVI) provides uncompressed transfer of high-definition video from a digital video source to a digital display device. And the 3D Y/C comb filter combines the adaptive digital processing of a 3-line digital comb filter with 3D motion detection to eliminate hanging dots and color noise on stationary images.

    With the 16:9/4:3 aspect ratio correction function, you'll be able to watch Hollywood movies in their original widescreen format (16:9) or in standard TV format (4:3). The 3:2 pulldown cinema video processing compensates for the different frame rates in film as opposed to video. You can also watch two channels at once with the picture-in-picture (PIP) feature.

    Other features include a color temperature control--which lets you adjust the ambiance of the screen's picture between warm, mid, and cool presets--built-in 14-watt speakers (7 watts per channel), Dolby Virtual surround sound, trilingual menus (English, French, and Spanish), and MTS/SAP audio broadcast.

    Included Jacks
    RF in, DVI with HDCP, high-res component-video in (Y, Pb, Pr; 2 rear; 1080i/720p/480p/480i), S-video in (1 front, 1 rear), A/V in (1 front, 3 rear), A/V out (1 rear).

    Tech Talk

    • DCDi: A video-mode algorithm that stands for Directional Correlation De-interlacing. It was designed for video-based material like fast-paced sporting events, and its purpose is to eliminate jagged edges ("jaggies") along diagonal lines caused by interpolation.
    • Active lines: Scanning formats are measured in active lines of picture elements or pixels transmitted, both horizontal and vertical. The number of total pixels is calculated by multiplying the amount of vertical lines by the density of horizontal picture elements. For example, the 1920 x 1080 HDTV format has more than 2 million pixels (1920 x 1080 = 2,073,600). Today's NTSC video only has a resolution of 211,200 pixels (480 vertical lines and 440 horizontal pixels).
    • Aspect ratio: The aspect ratio refers to the shape of the video image. Today's standard television has a 4:3 aspect ratio, which is almost square in appearance. Digital television will have either a 4:3 or 16:9 aspect ratio. A 16:9 aspect ratio is widescreen and appears rectangular--it looks more like a movie screen, filling more of the viewer's field of vision to yield a lifelike viewing experience.
    • Scanning method: Frames of video are made up of many lines that are scanned onto a television screen so closely they appear to be a solid picture. The scanning method can be either interlaced or progressive. Interlaced scanning (also used in today's analog TV), indicated by an "i" in the video format, fills in the odd number lines (1,3,5,7...) and then fills in the even number lines (2,4,6,8...) until the frame is complete. Progressive scanning, "p," fills in each line consecutively until the frame is complete, creating a seamless image.
    • Frame rate: Also known as picture rate, the frame rate is the speed at which the lines are scanned in order to create a video frame--60, 30, or 24 frames per second.

    Amazon.com Product Description

    It may be small in size, but Zenith's XBS444 home theater produces cinematic and musical excitement that's larger than life. The system consists of a combination DVD player/VHS player-recorder with an integrated surround receiver and FM tuning, five 2-way satellite speakers (left, center, right and left/right surround), and a 50-watt powered subwoofer to drive home the dramatic low-end frequencies.

    Whether your living room is currently home to a high-definition-ready or HDTV or if you're merely thinking of "someday," the XBS444's DVD component stands ready to deliver the full potential of your DVDs. Progressive scanning, referred to as 480p for the number of horizontal lines that compose the video image, creates a picture using twice the scan lines of a conventional DVD picture, giving you higher resolution and sharper images while eliminating nearly all motion artifacts.

    The integrated surround receiver decodes DTS and Dolby Digital 5.1-channel surround sound and processes stereo and music sources with Dolby Pro Logic II, generating enveloping, 5.1-channel surround from any 2-channel input. You can also choose from a suite of nine DSP (digital signal processing) algorithms to further tailor the sound to your taste or programming preferences.

    This system is made to handle music, too: just pop in a CD-R or CD-RW full of MP3 music files and sit back to enjoy up to 10 hours of your favorite digital music.

    The XBS444's 4-head VHS design ensures smooth slow-motion play (forward and reverse) and clear still-frame images. And, with hi-fi sound, the unit records and plays back stereo audio tracks. Its 19-micron heads deliver the clearest possible picture when recording or viewing in EP (extended-play) mode, and a handy one-touch-record button lets you tape programs "on the fly."

    With 250 watts total power (40 watts per channel) and a 7-inch driver on the subwoofer, you'll enjoy dynamic, ultra-clear sound. All speakers are ma genetically shielded to prevent image distortion when placed near a television, and a .125-inch headphone jack lets you listen at night or in private. The system includes an FM antennas, and its phase-lock-looped tuner offers 30 memory presets to keep all your favorite FM/AM radio stations within a finger's reach.

    Amazon.com Product Description

    Zenith's L20V36 20-inch LCD television features high-tech image enhancements like Super IPS technology, Faroudja DCDI De-Interlacer processing, and a 3-line digital comb filter. This is an EDTV display, which means it's a step closer to high-definition or HDTV than standard TVs. When used with a progressive-scan DVD player (or 480p-output DTV set-top box) you'll get seamless, razor-sharp images from your favorite movies and concert videos. The set receives NTSC broadcast signals for off-air viewing, while its inputs accept feeds from cable/antenna, HDTV set-top boxes (480i/480p) and satellite dishes.

    Pictures render in extremely detailed, 4:3 aspect-ratio 640 x 480 resolution, which is perfect for progressive-scan DVD outputs and video games. You also get high brightness (450 cd/m2) for a bright picture even in light-drenched environments. Inputs include high-resolution component-video, S-video, computer RGB, RF, and composite-video/analog stereo audio.

    LCD screens offer a number of benefits over CRT monitors and televisions, including general ease of use, freedom from eye strain (no screen flickering or radiation emissions), quiet operation (no high-pitch "flyback" noise, an issue with CRT TVs), accurate image geometry (no curvature distortion or susceptibility to magnetic interference from, say, speakers), long screen life (with no risk of image burn-in), space savings, and light weight/easy positioning. They also tend to be cheaper and, to some eyes, slightly more natural looking than their plasma flat-panel counterparts, which usually "spec" higher (higher brightness, higher contrast ratio).

    Super In Plane Switching (Super IPS) technology (made by Zenith's parent company, LG Electronics), which delivers unprecedented horizontal and vertical viewing angles of 176 degrees--virtually equaling those of CRTs, all the while ensuring better, clearer pictures from off-center seating positions than previously possible with an LCD. Super IPS uses a switching mode that treats light passing through the display at an angle virtually the same as light passing straight through the display. As a result, the set renders brightness, contrast, and color much more evenly, regardless of where you sit.

    A 3-line digital comb filter enhances resolution by removing blurred edges between colors and reducing dot crawl (tiny, moving dots of color along a sharp color separation in a vertical line, as in a depiction of a character's striped T-shirt).

    The set also uses Faroudja's DCDi Processor, which upconverts standard video signals (480i) to progressive-scan 480p signals, eliminating the jagged edges along diagonal lines. Progressive-scan signals create a picture using twice the scan lines of a conventional pictures, giving you higher resolution and sharper images while eliminating nearly all motion artifacts.

    Parental control with V-Chip (a programmable feature that uses the US standard content-advisory system to exclude viewing of specific programs or program types) helps you keep young eyes off mature content. Other features include Dolby Virtual Surround processing for simulating surround sound from the set's two 5-watt speakers, and an onscreen graphic equalizer for tailoring the sound to your preference.

    For connections, the set offers 1 each component- and S-video inputs, 2 composite-video inputs, and 1 coaxial RF input for use with an antenna or a VCR or cable box. A headphone output affords private listening.

    4-0 out of 5 stars compare apples to apples
    I recently purchased this TV after comparing pictures to 3 other brands at the store (Circuit City). I was ready to buy a more expansive TV on name only but could not help but notice what a much better picture this TV had, even as the store clerk told me that the signal is not very consistent in the store. I just read the other 3 reviews and I am surprised someone thought this should compete with an HDTV when it is not. (I have one on my big screen downstairs). The EDTV is sufficient for the bedroom especially with a digital cable signal and the prgressive scan that the EDTV uses.I have not noticed any lower screen lighting problem nor any sound problems. In fact, the TV gives about 5 different settings that you set for different sound depending on whether its a movie, sports, etc. It sounds like the poor reviews are coming from people who have not read the info with the TV and experimented with setting contrast, color, etc as there are various settings available also. I agree that you should see it with your own eyes. I cannot speak for their service reps as I have not needed them certainly can say I am happy with my set!

    1-0 out of 5 stars Bad, Bad and Worse
    I was looking for the most inexpensive 20" LCD TV I could find for my bedroom. What I found is not my father's Zenith. It's flimsy junk. I wish I had seen the remote control before I purchased it, it looks like something that would come with a $19.95 boombox (the label with the numbers and functions was all wrinkled up to boot). What a mistake. I'm sorry I didn't see the first review on Amazon prior to purchasing it. The image contrast is terrible (it seemed ok when I looked at one in the store). Bright areas cause image distortion and then there's distortion for no reason at all. Most things look like a bootleg VHS tape. The Zenith website support is horrendous! Their forms don't work. Their bulletin board is useless and comes up with "file not found" errors. It's impossible to submit a support form without a logon error. So, I called their 24/7 support. The person who answered the phone couldn't be more disinterested, unpleasant and less helpful. I wish I had a recording. They had no clue or suggestions as to what could be wrong. Im assuming they've heard this before, because they were quick to tell me it needs repair. They tell me that there aren't any people who can come to the home to fix the set "there's no one out there who knows how to fix these things". They want me to unmount it (It took me 3 weeks to find someone to pay to mount it on the wall) and send it back to them. This is $1000 item, not an electric toothbrush, I would expect a little more from them. However, I guess we all have to get used to the new millenium version of customer service. Maybe I wouldn't have been so angry, but the attitude of the "customer support respresentative" was just over the top. I will NEVER buy a ZENITH or LG product again. I was penny wise and pound foolish. I'd rather have lived with my old TV until I could've puchased a Sony or Sharp for a few hundred dollars more. THINK TEN TIMES before you buy Zenith or any other items which appear to be a bargain. Do your homework. The above review is my oppinion based on my experience.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great picture quality!
    I could not disagree any more with the first review and I wonder if they have even seen this Zenith. I've done quite a bit of research regarding LCD TV's. There are a few things you should be looking for...high contrast ratio, high brightness ratio, digital comb filter, fast pixel response time, and maybe one of the most important and most overlooked features, Faroudja DCDi video processing.

    Faroudja DCDi is usually found only in high end LCD's. It's purpose is to smooth the picture in fast action scenes. Something I've seen far too often (especially in Sharp Aquos) is the jagged edges in fast action on LCD's that fail to keep up with the action.

    For the Zenith L20V36, it has an excellent, bright picture. Color contrast is also great. And thanks to the Faroudja video processing and 10 millisecond pixel response, it has no trouble keeping up with fast action.

    Don't take my word for it, though. See it for yourself. That's the only way to really judge an LCD. Circuit City carries this Zenith. I'd put it up against any of the 20 inch Sharp Aquos any day. I would even be so bold as to say it's competes quite well with Samsung and Phillips.

    Now it doesn't have HDTV, nor does it claim to. But guess what, as a 20 inch TV for the bedroom, that's not a big deal. If one is that interested in HDTV, you'd want to be watching it on your main TV in the living room. So start there with HD if that is your intent.

    Also beware of the claims with most manufacturers about contrast and brightness ratios. Unfortunately there is no standard for measuring these and many manufacturers, especially lesser known brands, exagerate these numbers. Again, there's no substitute for seeing them in person. I'm extremely pleased to own this Zenith L20V36.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Rather poor quality
    First off you should know this is NOT an HDTV-ready TV monitor. It's the so-called EDTV with E standing for extended or enhanced depending on whom you ask. In any case it's not HDTV, and there's almost no program available (broadcast, cable or DVD) that supports this mode. Second this is a very poorly made display. You'd think for this price you'll get good quality. Unfortunately the answer is no in this case. The image quality and brightness is uneven, with a serious shadow cast over the lower half of the screen. The pixelation is very pronounced on this monitor, when compared to, say, a Sharp Aquos model. The word here is "ugly." Anything beautiful, e.g., a beautiful woman's face, looks terrible in blocky pixels. Finally the sound is inadequate. This is a very poor product. Most other Zenith LCD TVs are also very poorly made. If you are going to spend money on an LCD TV, get a Sharp Aquos. See my review of the 20" Aquos model. ... Read more

    Amazon.com Product Description

    Zenith's 60-inch P60W38 HD-ready television uses groundbreaking gas-plasma display technology to deliver superior image clarity, color, and brightness in widescreen (16:9 aspect ratio), large-format television that's less than 4 inches thick. Load up your home theater gear and plug in your PC: the P60W38 handles most, with a total of five video source inputs and two accompanying audio inputs.
    The Benefits of HDTV
    Standard TVs (SDTVs) display a maximum of 480 lines using the interlaced scan method, which creates a picture with alternating lines of information.
    Enhanced-definition TVs (EDTVs) display a maximum of 480 lines using the progressive-scan method, which creates an image using consecutive lines of information for a crisp, flicker-free picture.
    High-definition TVs (HDTVs) display a maximum of either 1,080 interlaced lines or 720 progressively scanned lines for the sharpest possible image.

    With a plasma screen you get vivid colors like you've never seen before, extremely wide viewing angles (wider, even, than those of most LCD screens), and easy placement due to a plasma monitor's slim profile--the P60W38 is a mere 3.9 inches deep, perfect for desk or wall mounting (please be aware that both table stand and mounting kit are optional). Brightness tends to be extremely uniform across plasma screens, which are also impervious to the picture distortion and negative color balances that afflict CRT monitors when placed near lighting or sound systems.

    The P60W38's 1,280 x 720 resolution produces extremely detailed imagery, while its super-sharp (1,000:1) contrast ratio delivers rich colors and deep blacks. The set's amazingly high (1,000 cd/m2) brightness gives you an incredibly bright picture, even in well-lit areas.

    Aspect-ratio correction lets you resize video and computer images to either 16:9 widescreen or 4:3 conventional formats, while Zenith's Intelligent Image Scaling employs a Faroudja/Sage scan converter to seamlessly convert TV video data to PC formats without distortion or cropping of images (in either 4:3 or 16:9 aspect ratios).

    RS-232 controls and NTSC, HD, VGA, SVGA, XGA, and SXGA inputs makes the unit compatible with DVD players, VCRs, computers, digital broadcasting, multimedia, and traditional video sources.

    From quality VHS cassette recording and playback and high-resolution DVD performance to easy spinning of homemade MP3 CDs, Zenith's XBV442 handles all your movie and music needs. This stylish combo unit saves space while simplifying your entertainment hookups, providing convenient front-panel audio/video jacks simplify hookup with camcorders and video game consoles. The XBV442 plays CDs, CD-Rs, CD-RWs, MP3 and WMA CDs, JPEG image CDs, and of course standard DVD-Videos.

    Whether your living room is currently home to an HDTV or you're merely thinking of "someday," the XBV442 stands ready to deliver the full potential of your DVDs through its progressive-scan component-video outputs. Progressive scanning, referred to as 480p for the number of horizontal lines that compose the video image, creates a picture using twice the scan lines of a conventional DVD picture, giving you higher resolution and sharper images while eliminating nearly all motion artifacts.

Other features include 4x and 6x moveable zoom, variable high-speed scan (2x, 4x, 16x, and 100x), parental locks, bookmarking, 20-track CD programming, and repeat and resume play.

    The VCR section offers 4 heads (for clear slow-motion and stop-action features) and stereo sound. The deck's 19-micron video heads maintain clarity during recording or playback in EP (extended play) mode, auto digital tracking adjusts for optimal picture settings for every tape you load, and auto clock set maintains the correct time and even adjusts for daylight savings. You can't program the unit to record at specific times, but it does come with a handy Instant Recording button.

    For the simplest hookup with your TV, you can use a single RCA composite-video connection to handle both DVD and VCR outputs. If you want a higher-quality connection from the DVD player, you can use a component- or S-video cable to an additional input on your TV (the VCR image requires a composite-video or RF connection with your TV). You can choose between an optical and a coaxial digital-audio output to feed a surround-sound signal to your Dolby Digital- or DTS-decoding audio/video receiver.

    If you don't have a surround receiver or 6-channel speaker setup, you can still make every movie night the ultimate experience: the unit simulates surround sound through two speakers (even the stereo speakers on your TV).

    1-0 out of 5 stars Nice TV, but ...
    The TV itself is awesome.The picture is great.I've rediscovered TV with this baby.This TV is better on all aspects than the $2500+ Sony, Panasoic, Sharp, etc.

    Sadly, all LCD manufacturers hide a dirty little secret.My TV came with a dead pixel.J&R won't ship me a new one unless Zenith authorizes them.I called Zenith.Zenith said I had to have 3 dead pixels or more for them to consider it defective.This dead pixel policy has been around since LCD technology first came into being.I could understand it in the early 90s, but the industry has had enough time to improve their fabrication process.They are ripping the customer off.

    This TV would easily get 5 stars if it didn't come with a dead pixel.Buyer beware!!!! ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Inexpensive Alternative
    On day in August my eight year old Panasonic Hi Fi VCR died. I was going to get a new HiFi VCR but they were about $80. I had an original Toshiba DVD which worked fine, but I wanted to shrink down the space for components.

    This unit is all in one. I hooked it up in ten minutes to the TV, Digital Cable Box and Receiver. What is nice is that you can watch TV, DVD or VCR throught the RF output (LESS HASSEL). When you watch a feature film you can route it throught the receiver and Component Video in on the TV for clearer picture and great sound.

    The unit is very quiet (even rewinding tapes). It doesnt whistle playing DVDs and I tried an MP3 CDR of 10 hours of Jimmy Buffett Music (through the TV Speakers or Receiver). It is great with onscreen display.

    If you are worried about the price don't be. The next step up offers a few more features but not worth the extra $20 unless you need it.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Junk
    My player lasted only 6 months and was used very little. The DVD player would freeze up after 10 minutes of use. Zenith said they would repair it for 45 dollars. Looks like it was designed to last long enough to get past the 90 day warranty. I'm done with Zenith products.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Its crap!
    Skip over this product unless you want to spend your hard earned money for a DVD player that lasts less than one year!

    Service from LG Electronics is horrible. The offer to send pre-paid Airborne shipping labels wasn't followed up on until I raised a stink. They swore the labels could not be sent to my P.O box - when in fact they finally were tossed into a #10 envelope and mailed anyway!

    Be prepaired to be asked for proof of purchase (this took two phone calls) - THEN asked for a $45.00 fee for a refurbished unit if over the 90 day warranty period (yet another phone call). All the time being laughed at by the incompetent phone reps.

    No more Zenith products for me.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Mine worked well for a while
    It's possible that I just got a lemon, but my XBV342 crapped out after less than a year of use. The warranty covers one year on parts and 90 days on labor, but I have no proof of when I bought it (my fault, but it still sucks.)

    I took the player to a local electronics repair shop who told me the laser needed replacing, and that a new one would cost just as much as buying a new player. What a waste.

    Until it quit working, this was an excellent player. It would have been nice to be able to play VCDs or DVD-R discs, but it could do neither. I thought I would use the VCR quite a bit, but truthfully, I used it maybe 4 or 5 times out of 6 or 7 months. Next time I get a DVD player, I'm going to get a non-combo player that plays DVD-R and/or VCDs - this time I'll keep my receipt, ESPECIALLY if I buy a Zenith.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Customer Service nonexistant
    While I was happy with this unit initially, I started having problems with the DVD Player and the nightmare began. I bought this unit last year and started having problems with DVD's skipping intermitently back in Nov. I have been trying to resolve this matter over the past 3 months through Zenith's Customer Service to no avail. It began with trying to find a warranty certified service provider in my area. The number they gave me was an obscure repair shop I had never heard of. No one ever answered the phone and there was no answering machine. I then tried to have it sent in for service, but that never materialized. Then I was told that they would be sending me a CD Rom upgrade for some software problem. That did no good. I was finally told that they would "resolve the matter" but have heard nothing back from them and have gotten no response from several messages I have left for the person I was dealing with on a one ot one basis. This is the worst customer service I have ever received. I'm also going to complain to the Better Business Bureau and our State Attorney General's office. I would much rather have had someone tell me that I was out of luck and should just throw the darn thing away instead of stringing me along all this time. I will never buy anything from Zenith again. ... Read more

    Amazon.com Product Description

    Enjoy full HDTV resolution and enhanced standard-definition (SD) viewing from the R45W46's vivid 45-inch widescreen (16:9) display. The rear-projection Zenith offers a host of picture-enhancing technologies, upconverting interlaced (480i composite- and S-video) signals to bring VCRs, nonprogressive DVD players, cable boxes, and other entertainment devices up to 1080i or 480p resolution. The set accepts, and renders at full resolution, decoded 1080i or 480p video signals from DTV set-top boxes or progressive-scan DVD players and satellite receivers.

    Progressive scanning, referred to as 480p for the number of horizontal lines that compose the video image, creates a picture using twice the scan lines of a conventional DVD picture, giving you higher resolution and sharper images while eliminating nearly all motion artifacts. The R45W46 also performs 3:2 pulldown. DVD mastering introduces a common distortion when adjusting 24-frames-per-second movies to 30 fps video; Zenith's 3:2 Pulldown Cinema Correction digitally corrects this distortion, removing the redundant information to display a film-frame-accurate picture.

    The set's HD-grade optics improve brightness and focus and reduce the cabinet depth to a manageable 19.2 inches. HD Focus eliminates the need to manually adjust the picture--just select HD Focus from the onscreen menu, and to automatically adjust the picture from center to edge. Specifically developed for digital program content, the R45W46's HD-grade, high-output CRTs maximize brightness and picture detail. Further, the unit's improved digital display eliminates most of the standard video artifacts that afflict typical analog upconversion, or line doubling (such as pixelization).

    Velocity-scan modulation improves the definition at picture edges, creating sharper images by slowing the CRT (cathode-ray tube) beam's horizontal scanning during demanding work--say, when rendering transitions from light to dark parts of an image--and speeding it up when scanning easily rendered sections, like broad dark areas. Three selectable velocity-scan modulation and fine (0.52 mm) dot pitch ensure a detailed picture.

    The set's HD-capable DVI (digital visual interface) input accepts a direct digital connection with a DTV receiver and obviates any unnecessary digital conversions prior to viewing. A pair of 1080i-capable component-video input grants optimum connection with high-definition devices, while standard composite- and S-video inputs accommodate all DVD players and most other video devices. (For older VCRs and cable boxes, there's also a threaded RF input.) A set of variable-level AV outputs lets you hook the set up with your audio/video receiver, while side-panel AV inputs makes it easy to plug in a camcorder, digital camera, or gaming console for spontaneous use.

    You get stereo audio (with an impressive 15 watts per channel from A/V sources or broadcast programming via Multi-channel Television Sound (MTS), which permits broadcasters to encode stereo audio within the video portion of TV programming signals. Not equipped with a surround receiver? Built-in Dolby Virtual Surround simulates enveloping surround sound from the set's two speakers or, when hooked up, from your stereo system.

    The set also features single-tuner PIP (picture-in-picture), built-in rear carrying handles (making it a cinch to move), favorite-channel selection, a trilingual onscreen display (English, Spanish, French), closed-caption display, two-level mute, V-Chip parental control, a sleep timer, an on-timer, and an illuminated universal remote control.

    Treat yourself and your living room to the attractive DVR413, which will give you the power to time shift your TV viewing and share your home videos with friends and family.

Its progressive-scan DVD playback abilities include compatibility with DVDs, CDs, CD-R and CD-RW discs, and CDs loaded with MP3 music files.

    The DVR413's handy, front-panel audio/video jacks simplify connections with camcorders, VCRs, DVRs, and other devices, so you'll always be ready to create a new masterpiece. Inputs include composite-video (with accompanying stereo analog RCA inputs), RF coaxial (accommodating antennas and older VCRs), and a front-panel digital-video input. The recorder digitizes your video sources in high-quality MPEG-2 (the same format used for commercial DVDs), with either 2- or 5.1-channel Dolby Digital encoding for the audio.

    Recording features like disc project creation, title delete, A-B delete, program move, chapter/program combine, auto/manual chapter creation, and file naming make it simple and convenient to configure your projects.

    Playback features include 4x and 6x moveable zoom, variable high-speed scan (2x, 4x, 16x, and 100x), parental locks, bookmarking, 20-track CD programming, and repeat and resume play.

    Think about it, There is no way in your lifetime people are going to give away a 15K Plasma for 2k.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great Picture in a Big Set
    I've seen this monitor on display at a retail outlet and wish I could afford to buy one. The picture is bright, crisp, detailed. Colors are vivid. It's presence is rivaled only by the Toshiba 50HP82 and the Panasonic TH-50PHD5UY, both 50" screens. The Zenith has PIP (like the Toshiba), many other plasma sets do not. You need an external tuner, like the Sony SAT-HD200 (if you have Directv) and speakers are extra. If you have no budget and you really need 60", the Zenith is the one. Make sure you search online retailers for the best price.
