I'm quite impressed by this

I'm quite impressed by this converter box. It transmits excellent picture quality. And, it was able to pick up 25 channels prior to the digital changeover. Now, with the changeover, it picks up 35.

It does have a petite design. The body's made of plastic; however, I do not consider this box to be cheaply made. It does have a solid feel to it, but it is small. And, to some, that may make it feel cheap.

It does have a meter, so you can gauge the best position for your antenna. However, I would suggest using the actual clarity of the picture to determine the adjustment of your antenna. And, you can use the meter to confirm how strong the signal is. This technique gives me the best picture quality.

If you're looking for an antenna, I would suggest Radio Shack's hdtv antenna model#15-1868. It costs $20.

I still consider the Zenith one of the best; however, I find it hard to believe that any box out there can transmit better picture quality than this little box. Overall, I would rate the digital stream dtx9950 an A-.

I only have two minor complaints about this box. It is small. And, it runs a little hot; however, I have not tested any of the other boxes.

The digital stream dtx9950 transmits a picture quality that's comparable to anything I've seen on cable or satelite dish.
