Why is Zenith blowing these projos out. I was wondering if the Pro900X with a Faroudja NR series Line Doubler is better than my Vidikron IMAGE TWO A and VP-20 LINE DOUBLER.


Should I go with the PRO900X?


Thanks

It's a good if not quite a great machine. Zenith sells sets cheaply because they can. They're one of the few companies that make their own CRT's. That saves a lot of $$.


I have serviced about 6 out of 20 Runco DTV 852 (similar unit made by Zenith). All 6 had different problems, and due to Runco's prices, were expensive to repair, but since there was no common fault, I'd say that's probably a good thing and means that nothing was particularly underdesigned.

Sorry, what I meant to say is 6 out of 20 Runcos sold by one local dealer here...

The PRO895 supports horizontal scan rates up to 40kHz, the PRO900 supports horizontal scan rates up to 50kHz.


Because of the above, the PRO895 will not support 720p or 1024x768, but the PRO900 will.

I am sure that both the 895X and 900X have identical specs....

Both the 895 and 900 are identical in about every way but the color. In an effort to open up a market with a lower priced model, Zenith took a PRO 900, painted it black and fudged the specs to 40Khz. Yet it still does 50Khz. We service and run them at our location and have run the 895 at 768P (48Khz) and it performs quite well.
