Summary: This is a great radio. I can use my iPod, a USB, listen to CD's, and, of course, the radio. It is very basic, but that is what I wanted. All of the settings are easy to use. It is easy to set the display colors, change between sources, and set the time.
Summary: I put this in my 2004 Ford F150 to replace the stock system. I immediately could hear a differnce in sound quality and I really like the graphics/colors and functions. Once you get used to it, it works really well. I almost constantly use the USB (mp3s) option exclusively. Only extra would have been if it was HD radio also. I did hook it up myself with little to no prior car audio experience and it worked well.
Works good, sounds good. Middle of the road, good value

Summary: Good value I suppose. One notch above OEM. Tedious to navigate. Sounds a lot better than OEM once you adjust the equalizer a bit. I can use my ipod on it which is cool. I don't really get into flashy car stereo stuff. Could care less about thumping or ear-splitting intensity. If you want big sound, a gps, or any other flashy features get something else. If you want to upgrade from OEM for a good price, and a good value, go with this.
Summary: After some time reviewing possible replacements for Ford's Mach 460 unit (sony made it as the OEM Ford) past success with Kenwood units and features won my money for the DPX308U here at Amazon, purchased Jan 31, 2012. It was not difficult to install.. But the wiring diagram left a critical connection unmentioned. After weeks of frustration a friend found a comment about the Mach 460 while doing online research of the sound-connection interface.
Summary: is not satellite radio ready. only has two sets of pre-outs, (one for general speakers, and one SW) if you are running your speakers off of amps rather than the deck, this is not the one to buy.
Summary: I searched for a stereo for about a month, and every other deck I felt like I was settling. In my opinion, a cheesy or cheap looking deck brings down the value of a car. I liked the alpines, but they didn't offer a double din, and they only were able to display in light blue. I really like that I can match my dash with this one. I don't need bluetooth, so that didn't matter to me. I don't need Pandora. I just want to plug in my iphone through aux, and play my spotify.
Summary: Arrived in a couple days, installed easily, sounds fantastic depending on your speakers of course. Lots of options and great value for the money spent. The only downside is not a deal breaker: the controls aren't laid out as well as could be expected, but for this price I am not complaining. Money well spent IMHO.
Summary: There are features it lacks to be an awesome double din unit but i have always found better sound with Kenwood and decided to stay with the sound quality rather than pick up one with blutooth. a small backup battery would be great also. Has a Zillion very distracting colors. I drive mostly at night and wish i could have dimmed them just a little more but i tend to like things darker in my car. Mine did not come with the actual set up manual so i looked it up online.
Summary: I wanted to update my orginal VW Jetta stereo. It was a good unit orginally in its day but its day had passed. I searched for a couple of months and found this great unit. It has everything and more I needed, it is douple Din so it fits perfect. It sounds awesome, great features too, it has a usb connector so all my music on my computer WMA files and MP3 files now plays on my car and it does sound great thru a usb.
