Summary: good radio except, i dont know how to change the treble settings and bass settings. if any one knows how to i would greatly appreciate it if you left a comment or create another review how to.
Summary: I like it. It dose what it should do. It is better than players that plays CDs. This has no moving parts that can break. All digital. Convert your CDs to MP3s put them on a small thumb drive and you are good to go. CDs are old news. Get with the new age of electronics and go digital. I have had mine for about a month and could not be happier. I just pop in one of my thumb drives with music on it and hit the random button and I am on the way. The radio works good also.
Summary: I purchased this unit at a local store for a mere $45 and installed it myself. It works great. Sound quality is top notch for the price and the interface is very simple. No need to sift through pages of user's manual in order to figure out how to work it. As other reviewers have already said, this is NOT a CD player. However, CDs are old news, and this unit plays music perfectly off of an iPhone, iPod, USB drive or SD card.
terrible build quality and arrived with broken functionality

Summary: i was really excited to get this player until i took it out of the box. feels like a cheap plastic toy with a volume knob that could easily pop right off and you're out of luck. seemed to work okay with the auxiliary port but when i plugged into the ipod usb port my ipod began charging then it would lose connection. i would leave the ipod lying on the car seat connected and watch the connection to usb power go in and out like every 5 seconds. CHEAP CHEAP garbage.
Summary: so i purchased this deck because of the aux in and the usb port. now 6 months later the aux in dosent work, if you wiggle the cord back and forth some times you can hear a bit of sound but not enough to under stand it. The USB port also is weak, and dosent have enough power to charge my phone or ipod. and if you plug a flash drive/memory stick into it you have to plug it in and pull it out a few times before it actually reads it.
Summary: Installation was a pain since connections didn't match up. I had to snip and rewire. Audio quality sounds excellent to me; more than I need. I have not tested out SD reader nor Aux (will update when I test). However, USB doesn't seem to be working. I loaded music and it plays for the first 5 seconds then it stops. It's on any song. I formatted, reformatted, and even used software (media monkey) but it still does the same thing. This is why it gets a 3 star.
Summary: First off I'd like to say this thing does ff and rew in the track. You have to hold down the advance track button instead of just pushing it once. Now that's said this is a great digital media deck. I got this because even the high end car cd players skip. Digital media not so much. I encode at high bit rates after I have enhanced the track or tracks to make up for some of the signal loss. This way you really can't tell that it's an mp3.
Cool idea, but where is my gain and sound controls?

Summary: The day has finally come that the book of CDs I have been carrying around the back seat of my car can be left inside the house. I LOVE the versatility of a USB stick, a SD (or MicroSD card with an adaptor), or my Rockboxed Sansa Fuze player can play out of my car for under $60. I even installed the unit myself into my 1998 Honda Black Widow Accord without much trouble and found an online installation guide for that car model, wiring my own 16 pin mylex harness to marry...
Summary: Forget about CD or cassettes, just dump your MP3s to a memory stick and drive. I thought I would miss not being able to play CD's but it much easier not to hassle with storing and loading a CD into a player while driving. Install was typical of all in dash units. I did have a failure in the first 3 days but Amazon replaced it immediately and the new product has worked perfectly ever since.
