Summary: I'm not an idiot, but this radio is a huge pain to program. On the lookout for something with a simpler design and setup. The button icons don't make sense, Initial setup is confusing and if your battery is disconnected for any reason you have to figure it out all over again. I would not recommend this product at any price.
Summary: I have been around competition car audio all my life and I have used my fair share of head units. This is not the best stereo but it is the best value you will find. This thing will do just about everything. It is without a doubt a good buy.
Summary: ordered a deh-3400 and received a deh-3500, looked about the same as the 3400 so I decided to try it, sounds great and worked great for a month then the display started to shut off leaving the radio playing but your unable to change channels or volume, have to turn off the ignition and then back on and the display will light up and stay on for a few days then it will blank out again. Very disappointed with it.
Put this in my pontoon boat with 6.5" and 6x9 JBL's sounds great

Summary: When you put together a receiver system and speakers you never know what you get, but I have used the Pioneer DEH& JBL's in the past. This did not disappoint. The only reason it did not get a 5 is the controls a difficult at best and the digital readout is hard to read in the daylight (as with most digital readouts).
