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: 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: 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: I saw many good reveiws on here and decided to pick this HU up. It's nice and looks flashy with the different color setting etc. Unfortunately I have had 2 problems with it, one of which is very annoying. 1. 2 weeks after purchase the CD drive started acting up randomly. It keeps spitting out the cd and wont accept it for awhile (totally annoying) 2.
Summary: I installed it myself because I couldn't wait to have it installed professionally- they were booked for weeks (I assume because of christmas presents people wanted installed). It seemed impossible until I found online the guide to which wires were which in my car, because the colored wires did not match up. So as soon as I found out what wires were what it was really easy. Just be sure to unhook the battery before doing anything. I used butt end wire connectors.
