Excerpt: This radio is very nice. I like it. I actually have one in my car, and it has great sound quality. I connect my ipod to it, and play it in my car just as easily as I play a cd. It sounds better than having headphones in.
Pros: Sound Quality, Appearance, Ease of Operation
Cheap effective does the job if you like putting your songs on a usb otherwise not as good

Excerpt: I have had the head unit since January cost me around £75 from Argos although similar and like for like products can be found in Halfords or upland outlets. The overall quality of the head unit is real good however it does have a few drawbacks.
Excerpt: Well from what i've heard i've been lucky with my ipod, i can connect it to the usb port and it plays all audio files but it functions as a normal usb key...have to control music from the cd player. Controlling music from the usb on the cd player itself is actually very inconvenient..
Pioneer DEH4000UB Fantastic, a real bargain if you shop around.

Excerpt: I bought the Pioneer DEH-4000UB recently as a replacement for the standard radio/cassette in my BMW 3 series. I have never been impressed with the BMW stereo (Phillips), and assumed that perhaps the speakers were as much to blame as the head unit.
Pros: Impressive for the money, especially through 'Twenga' .
Excerpt: Sounds great, but....bought to replace standard fitment Blaupunkt in my Fiat Doblo, problems soon mounted. As it was bought to run my iPod through the front mounted USB, first problem was the USB didn't work! No iPod was recognised, nor a USB stick with SD card.
Excerpt: That car radio system is a blast. Intuitive controls, usb and ipod control are really adding up to the fun here. I had a bit of trouble installing because the main problem with aftermarket systems is that illumination wire that you never know where to tie up.
Pros: Very good sound quality, many options, Sound Retriever technology
Summary: excelent machine, nice modern design, sound quality very good, easy to operate, good MP3, very good CD, the only downside is that it has a very small control button to turn the volume up or down, and it's a bit bulky, otherwise four star product, lot's of fun!!
Summary: Superb value for money, the sound quality is way above anything in this price range, MP3's files are handled really way with good seperation of bass,mid and tops - front aux input would have achieved 5 stars.
