It'l do

T. Butler "bmwrider", Amazon
12 September 2013
  • Summary: I like the look of this unit and it works well, but I have a 500GB hard drive hooked up and it doesn't resume from the last song I played. It's really annoying when it starts over again from the first song so I have heard it 1M times and hate the song. Maybe it wasn't designed for such a large device or maybe I'm doing something wrong, but that's my only big complaint about this unit. Other than that I really haven't had many problems with it.

Good sound quality, nothing else.

Bernardo Gomez, Amazon

  • Summary: I've had a couple of headunits, and bought this because it was inexpensive (I bought it used from another site) I needed a USB unit and this was the cheapest I could find with a decent quality. However, I HATE the screen. You can barely see it during daylight, the reflection is impossible. I just got used to not seeing the screen of it.

Good For The Price

  • Summary: It's O.K. but not much power. 18 per channel when most decks have 45 to 50 per. Could be more powerful. Great for the price tho.

Excellent sound quality; terrible interface unless you own an iPod

Jonathan J. Hall, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this head unit for the USB interface, but it leaves me sorely disappointed. I also owned the previous generation, and while this model is an improvement, it still leaves *much* to be desired. It doesn't support any sort of play lists, and it doesn't even sort folders alphabetically. What the heck? This is 2013... wasn't alphabetization invented CENTURIES ago?

good radio for price.

  • Summary: good radio for price, and very easy to use. i just found the volume knob was kind of warped when raising and lowering the volume. probably because it is a cheaper made radio. other than that worth the buy.

Not being able to control ipod is very annoying

Luke, Amazon
13 September 2012
  • Summary: Good product, sounds great, but it has one major problem: it locks your ipod or iphone so you can only control it from the stereo. If that doesn't bother you, by all means, buy it.

Not too happy

Raymond Cho, Amazon
20 February 2012
  • Summary: I bought this unit on Crutchfield about two years ago for my 2001 Civic. I got it so I can play my iPod via USB and now I'm using my phone via the AUX. It has pretty much all the features you need and expect to find except Bluetooth but I didn't need that. This unit definitely made my whole system sound better. The highs are a lot crispier and vibrant and the sound in general sounds cleaner. It's a little weak on the low-end however compared to my stock head unit.

Not so great for very large libraries. Don't be fooled.

Chris Clifton, Amazon
17 February 2012
  • Summary: Not great for large libraries. "Quick Search" is a joke. I have a 160Gb iPod connected to it with over 22000 songs spread across a decent amount of artists. When using quick search in the artists selection. It takes FOREVER to scroll through the alphabet. There is a way to hold the knob and jump it but even that seemes slower than scrolling. They need to adopt the technology apple uses on thier iPods that lets you quick scroll through the alphabet. A major fail for me.

Behind the times

David A. Long, Amazon
8 February 2012
  • Summary: As fancy as this radio looks, it doesn't work that great and the sound quality is below par. The looks are coo and the bluetooth module does not stream audio when a sub $200 radio does. I have high expectations for Alpine and I was let down.

Not perfect but solid

Phillip Johnson "Phil", Amazon
31 December 2011
  • Summary: Product Ownership: I have been using it for a few months now. Pros *Installing was very easy since I already had an Alpine deck, all I had to do was plug it in. *Navigating menus is a dream compared to my old deck. *I haven't needed a CD player in the car since I installed it so I don't miss having one. *Charges my iPhone 4 quickly. *The lighting looks awesome. *Works with the remote from my old Alpine deck!
