Excerpt: I'll try not to be too harsh on this unit (as I bought a 2nd hand one off ebay) but its difficult not to be with all the problems I have encounterd. Refusing to play certain discs, mp3 discs skipping and the unit would quite often freeze up for no apparent reason. After a bit of research I found out that the problems lie with the firmware on the unit, with most issues delt with by the release of the BT5100 (the same unit but with the updated firmware.
Summary: As I said in the title, what a quality piece of equipment, looked at some pioneer bluetooth stereos, believe me they are not a patch on this item. All the buttons feel great, the joystick feels solid. The sound quality is fantastic. The bluetooth phone quality is excellent (I use a Nokia 8800). I bought this item as a result of the other review (which is much more detailed than mine) and he was spot on in all his comments.
Fabulous Integration of BT for Phone and Audio in a great sounding unit

Summary: FIRST IMPRESSIONS Out of the box The player comes with a nice rounded faceplate case, and a classic looking remote that can act as a cool telephone dialler as it has all the numbers rather than just 1-6 that appear on the head unit. An instruction manual, which is less bulky than pervious, an install guide and lots of BT leaflets and quick start guides.
