Summary: I do like this item. I like it's versatility, USB, Bluetooth audio, bluetooth hands free for your phone, and of course radio. Some may miss the CD player function, but most people now have digital media. If I had any negative points, it would be that the physical size is quite small (no optical drive), and as a consequence you need a longer aerial lead to connect to the back of the unit. The radio tuner is excellent, with very good sensitivity and lovely sound quality.
Summary: I got this at its lowest price and even that wasn't enough to up the stars. Bluetooth failed in the area's of calls which was one of the main reasons for purchasing it. It was returned and Amazon issued a refund without any problems. I guess its the same old story "You get what you pay for"...
Will not work with or charge your iPhone through the USB slot

Summary: Fine stereo for the price but worth spending extra for iPhone usb connectivity if you have one. I can notice the difference in sound quality from bluetooth to USB as my wife has a sony unit that she can use USB with her iPhone, USB being much fuller.
Summary: my built in (tape!) car stereo packed so needed a new one. CDs a bit old now, so decided I didn't need a CD drive. With an adaptor kit this stereo went straight in. The usb mp3 thing is great! be good if it would do playlists from windows media - it does folders instead so you can skip up and down albums easilly. Radio is good.
Summary: The amount of features this unit has make it very good value for money (I bought this when it was £65), the usb menu is easier to navigate the Pioneer unit I have fitted to my other car. It also gives a good sound for this price range. The half depth of the unit compared to traditional units is very useful if room in the dash is tight and made fitment very easy as I didn't have to worry about crushing wires behind the unit.
Summary: This head unit turned out to be even better than I'd expected. The clarity when using Bluetooth is so much better than the Parrot I was using before, even the built in microphone seems to perform really well. Overall an outstanding piece of kit!
Summary: Bought to replace an older Sony unit that got nicked from the car. Was fed up with CDs in the car - too few options and too many scratches - so decided usb option with a decent size memory stick was the way forward for me. Was also keen on the integrated hands free for the mobile phone. Easy to install with clear instructions - even for a complete novice like me.
Great head unit,but lights up blue and is FAR too bright.

Summary: Good stereo, connects to iPhone5 perfectly - takes about 4 seconds to reconnect on start which is fine, plays well, nice removable facia which is only 2/3rd the size of a standard one. Nice remote control. Works well with the tiny USB keys for plenty of music. I hate any electrical items that light up blue. This lights up the whole interior of the car. Dimmer mode only dims the display, not the vivid blue buttons.
