Summary: I use this device on a daily basis. I love it and for the price, it was perfect. I usually connect by phone and ipod to it, as i bought the ipod connector. The bluetooth is pretty good for the speakerphone, excellent for music. I wish you had the option for an external mic for the bluetooth for better placement, but its still pretty darn good. I used to drive 40 minutes daily while talking to my girlfriend.
Summary: I bought this head unit this fall to trade out a 3 year old lower end sony model that i got at Best Buy. So when it came to replacing it i tried to do my homework. I knew Sony was the brand i wanted to stay with and beleived this was the highest end unit i could find on Amazon. I noticed a big difference as soon as i turned it on and adjusted the EQ, which is very nice, this unit made our rockin system come alive and really look forward to the final upgrade on this...
Summary: I am verry happy with this radio, It is abstract and unlike any other flat faced boring radio, it almost looks like a video game controler. The only thing I would change is the internal microphone for the handsfree calling. It doesent sound very good on the other end of the line, other then that its worth the money.
Summary: has an mp3 connection that allows him to sync his phone to it and either put any calls on the radio and talk hands free from it &/or play his favorite songs ONLINE from his phone to the radio. Cant remember all the features but he LOVES it and he is a techy.
Summary: I upgraded to this unit from my previous player because I wanted the bluetooth features. This one has hands free capapbilites built in (with no need for an add on adapter or microphone)as well as audio streaming. As soon as I start the car, the BT5100 pairs up with my iPhone and I'm ready to go.
Summary: This is an awesome product!! It looks awesome too. I've had 2 or 3 sony's and they have all been easy installations, and perfromed perfectly. The bluetooth is okay. The person can only hear you if all your windows are rolled up and your car is at a stop, while driving it's almost like a lens that can't focus, because the mic is trying to single out your voice but there's alot of background noises that get picked up instead.
Summary: Sony MEXBT5100 CD Receiver Pros: Menus are easy to navigate. Attractive design. Cons: BT mic produces very poor quality calls. If I had to do it over, I would pick a radio with a better mic or one that is not built into the unit. People immediately know I am calling from my car and my wife always asks me to use the phone rather than hands free feature of this stereo.
