Pros: Decent size screen
Cons: No 'cancel' button on remote
I've had this Zenith television for about 1 1/2 years ( a complete guess ); so far there have been no serious problems. It gives a pretty decent picture and sound.
The Zenith B25A10Z is a color TV with a standard ( curved screen ). I don't remember the screen size; it's between 20 and 30 inches.
The front of the TV has buttons for power, volume, channel selection, and the on-screen menu. The back of the TV has the power cord and antenna connection ( 75 ohm ). There is also a remote ( uses two AA cells ) that allows all the TV's functions.
The sound on the TV can be muted or unmuted ( only with the remote ), Closed Captioning options are available ( 4 caption and 4 text ), there is a sleep timer ( allows the TV to turn itself on/off at a specific time ), there is a 'flashback' option ( changes channel to the last one viewed ), auto programing ( the TV locates active and stores active channels ), manual channel addition/deletion, on-screen clock, parental control ( blocks specific channels for a certain amount of time ), choice of audio mode ( stereo or mono ), language options for on-screen text ( English, Spanish, or French ), and viewing options ( allows adjustments of contrast, brightness, tint, etc. ).
After auto-programing, you can change channels with the channel-up/channel-down buttons; the TV skips the 'dead' channels......this model is fairly good at detecting signals, so there are some stations a good distance away that the TV has found.
When the remote is used, it causes information to be shown on the screen of the TV; the information appears for 5 seconds; since there is no 'cancel' button on the remote, there is no way to immediately erase the info on the screen ( you just have to wait ).
The TV comes with the remote, manual, warranty card, and a loose piece of paper with "quick step" setup information.

The TV still works. There is a small problem that when I manually push a volume button the TV may change the channel; I don't understand how the technology inside can have a fault like this. Otherwise the TV is still working fine.
With HDTV becoming the new fad this model is obsolescent.
