Zenith DVB216 review: Zenith DVB216

 

Zenith DVB216

Nice cosmetics; satisfactory 3:2 pull-down detection; pleasing feature package; illuminated remote control with jog shuttle dial; MP3 playback; HDCD support.

Poor deinterlacing for video-based material; switching from component video to S-Video is awkward.

An excellent value among progressive-scan DVD players, the DVB216 makes a great match for HDTV-ready televisions

Zenith DVB216 Progressive-Scan DVD Player

 

Sure, a mirror reference was the obvious route to go with the intro. After all, how many DVD players do you know that sport a fully mirrored front panel? Still, I'll try to keep the analogies to a minimum.

First up, as usual, are test patterns. Using our reference Princeton AF3.0HD monitor, I hooked up the DVB216 using component and S-video cables. With the S-video signals and the resolution pattern on the Avia test disc, the player seemed to put out, at...

CAUTION: Zenith-LG Return Policies & Service Depot

 

Like the review by pdever, I too was initially thrilled with the very stylish DVB216. Since I used DVD's somewhat infrequently at first, it took longer for us to realize that the "DISK ERROR" front panel display, disc skips, randomly chaotic fast ...

Nice player ... when it works

 

I bought the unit from Amazon.com in September 2002, but was too busy to take it out of the box until December, which proved to be a huge mistake, for it was then past Amazon's 30-day return limit. On the plus side, the unit is aesthetically pleasing: ...

Nice image and sound quality

Requires new TV for hookup ; many mainstream DVDs require firmware update from Zenith to play

Buyer Beware

 

We have had this DVD player for about a month. It skips and stalls in the middle of playing a DVD. Zenith said it is a software problem, so they are shipping out a new one. I hope the problem does not occur on the new player, but based on reviews at...

Great picture and sound quality.

Stalls and skips when playing DVDs.

Consumer review (epinions.com)

Zenith admits there is a problem with this model

 

While this player did a fine job playing most DVDs, it would not play two DVD movies. In the last 20-30 minutes of each (Sopranos season 1 disc 1 and Star Wars: Attack of the Clones), the player would freeze and skip scenes. Both DVDs played well on...
