Summary: Great sound for a decent price! Easy installation with proper kit. (sold separately) Only lacks 5th star because the station preset buttons are too small and too close together - hard to find in a hurry.
Summary: I purchased this item as a refurbished item, not brand new. Deck came from a private individual well packaged and missing only the factory manual, the manual is readily available online though through Pioneers website or a search online using the model number. I found the interface to be easy to work with but the buttons on the deck are fairly small, making it a little hard to change stations/settings while on the move.
Summary: This item is great for the price. everything functions it looks better in real life then in picture. it's solid and functions great, plays cd and mp3 even though no one uses cd anymore, there's an AUX plug you can plug your ipod or mp3 player in and it's great.
Summary: The Pioneer DEH-1200MP: Bought this unit for the CD player for my wife, the old player wore out. Installed this unit three and a half mounts ago, "it died on use." No power nothing works on it. Bench tested it and yep dead as a door nail. It has a one year warranty but as we all know these warrantees aren't worth the paper there wrote on.
Summary: I bought this Pioneer deck to replace my pioneer premier deck I had that finally died (almost 13 years old). Although it is not as high of quality or as full of features as the $800 deck it replaced, this deck, the DEH-1200MP gets the job done and is great. I like that it has RCA jacks (1 pair) for an amplifier, and has the AUX plug in the front. The remote is helpful too.
