Nice inexpensive DVD player


I got this as a gift for Christmas 2000. It really has been a nice VCR. It has all the digital outputs that you need for hooking up to a digital audio amplifier. The remote is well layed out and responds very quickly to remote input. Most...

Inexpensive. Compact. Nice remote

Has locked up on some disks. No VCD.

Zenith DVD2200: Hope for geeks everywhere?


When I'm looking at the manual for this bugger, I'm taken by what a lame life I have. On the cover, there's a really dumb looking goon with a very hot woman draped over him and the couch, and they're laughing uproariously at something. I would...

Zenith Works For Me


I'd been holding out, watching DVDs on my computer. Yeah, it was a pain, but I didn't want to spend the big bucks on a fancy DVD player.

Inexpensive & easy to operate.

Set-up sort of confusing for the non-technical among us.

I finally broke down and bought this Zenith DVD player after viewing 2 or 3 DVD's my son had purchased and played on our computer. I was simply stunned and amazed at the picture clarity and sharpness. And then, to have all the added features that...

A layman's review: a DVD player for the simple folk


For the non-techie savvy people who love to watch movies, hear me out: The DVD format is here to stay. Buy one now. When I received my DVD player for my birthday last year - I was introduced to a blissful world where "rewind" didn't exist - and I...

Plays "The Matrix" without problems

A little clunky on the interface.

Mixed Reviews


I recieved the Zenith 2200 as a gift this past Christmas and for me it is perfect. I watch rentals very often, probably about 10 per month, and this player is exactly what I needed. I have a 15inch television in my bedroom, which is where I set up...

Great player for a low price, works excellent on small TV's or in small rooms.

Doesn't have the quality for an expensive theater system.

This was a christmas (2000) present from a family member. I've always thought about DVD players but never understood the point. I figured it was no different from video cassettes. Boy was I wrong!

easy to use, great sound, zoom, etc, no rewinding of videos,

Set up instructions are confusing. Husband loves to experiment with all the features.

Product Specifications

Focused on the digital future, Zenith continues to build on a proud 82-year heritage of leadership in home entertainment products. Zenith offers the DVC-2200 DVD player that has an ability to play DVD Discs and Audio CDs. Improved 10-bit digital-to-analog converter processes video signal at a faster rate, minimizing digital artifacts for the best possible picture quality. Aspect Ratio Control automatically determines the aspect ratio in which the DVD is encoded (either 16: 9 or 4: 3) and displays it appropriately. This player provides a clear image when video is stopped and frozen on the main screen of the television, or advanced one frame at a time. Advanced digital-to-analog converter handles super-fidelity 96-kHz/24 bit audio for maximum sound performance. Spatializer N-2-2 Virtual Surround uses proprietary circuitry to simulate the surround sound experience without the use of a separate external speaker system. Audio is more spacious and 3D with increased clarity at any listening level. This feature also adds dramatic impact to movies when using the front speakers built into a stereo TV. The DVC-2200 boasts a wide range of EZ features. You can search the disc by title, chapter or track, all by remote control. Playback speed can be increased in increments during forward (up to 100X) or reverse (up to 16X playback). Create variable speed slow motion in forward or reverse from Pause. Inserting a DVD disc automatically causes the DVD player to turn on, play the disc to the end, then power off. This function is ideal for smaller children. Multi-mode repeat will repeat the entire disc, chapter, segment (A-B) or program, as desired. Provides the ultimate in play back convenience and flexibility. Place up to 5 temporary bookmarks on the disc that make it easy to find a particular spot again, even if it is in the middle of a track. Bookmarks are erased when disc is ejected. EZ Angle changes the viewing angle of the scene being watched, at the touch of a button. Ergonomically designed remote permits convenient control of the DVD player. Trilingual on-screen menu system permits convenient operation. Choose the language for the on-screen menus, and special subtitles that may be placed onto the disc. You can also select an area of the screen to enlarge either 4X or 16X times. Parental Control allows you to exclude viewing of discs with specific program ratings.
