I'm planning to go with the Zenith, based upon the many positive comments seen on this board and a couple of others. It's only going to feed a 14" set in this room, as that's virtually all I watch any longer. There's a 27" Panasonic set in the den, very high-end in its day--but it sits unused for the most part. I come home from work, sit in here in front of the computer for several hours, and sometimes have the 14" set on as background.
I wish that the converter had the RF pass-through feature, as Dish Network is fed into this room on channel 36, from the TV-2 out of the receiver--outdoor antenna is also fed into this room from the same coax. The plan, at this point, is to either split or A/B the coax signal, sending it both to the converter and the set, so that Dish can still be received. I then plan to hook the converter to the TV using the RCA video/audio jacks.
