Laptops[edit]

What's with the horribly-written blurb about clamshell laptops at the bottom of the article? I'm tempted to remove it because, aside from needing a complete rewrite, I don't think the ZWL series were the first laptops to use the clamshell design (the Tandy Model 200 might have beaten them but I'm still looking). -lee 05:24, 12 November 2005 (UTC)

"SpeakEZ" VCR voice guide[edit]

I'm not sure how this would fit in, but I've used a Zenith VCR using this voice guide (I've heard of an older Sony Betamax with a voice guide built in, around 1984). If someone knows its development, it would be greatly appreciated. Jedo1507r 05:16, 7 January 2006 (UTC)

[edit]

Compare the Zenith logo with this one at the web page of JAM Creative Productions. Anyone see a similarity? Mattderojas 02:41, 27 May 2006 (UTC)

Adding Technical support[edit]

I would like to add a link to a technical support site for Zenith. At http://www.fixya.com/support/zenith there are experts that solve technical problems for free. It's also rated #1 when searching Google for "Zenith support" and "Zenith troubleshooting". I believe it's beneficial, if you have any comments please write them below.

Zenith to LG[edit]

Crap, they were so good too. in the late 80's and early 90's that is, with the Advanced System 3's and stuff. Daniel Christensen (talk) 18:43, 30 January 2009 (UTC)

Product list[edit]

Is a full product list available online anywhere? Drutt (talk) 10:16, 17 April 2009 (UTC)

Where's the remote?[edit]

This page claims Zenith did it first; McMahon, p.127, credits Philco with having one in 1939. Who got there first? TREKphiler any time you're ready, Uhura 15:28, 7 February 2010 (UTC)

NAFTA and globalism[edit]

American Zenith sold in 1995 victim of NAFTA and foreign imports. The untold history not found in the biased article. Why protect failed trade policies? 207.119.114.105 (talk) 23:46, 31 October 2010 (UTC)

If you have independent reliable sources making that claim, we might have something to discuss. Otherwise, your POV is simply not welcome here. - SummerPhD (talk) 04:21, 1 November 2010 (UTC)
