Define "best." What features are important to you?

You might find some useful information in the thread ATSC converter box comparisons.

There are also threads about some individual boxes, e.g. the RCA, the Magnavox, and the Zenith/Insignia (they're the same box with different branding), which you should be able to find by scrolling back through a few pages worth of threads.

The Zenith/Insignia box has gotten favorable reviews, especially as regards reception.
