Good screen, features, audio quality and a simple sleek design

Summary: After noticing that this product only had a single 1 star review it almost made me nervous of purchasing it; until I read the comments on that review which I think speak for themselves fairly well.
Good looking, sounds great - fiddly controls and slow SD startup

Summary: The sound quality is what you'd expect from Pioneer; no complaints there. The styling is good too. It's difficult to find car stereos that aren't covered in buttons and chrome. This is definitely one of the most elegant stereos around right now.
Summary: This car audio system is fantastic. The sound reproduction is superb, the display is better than any system I have previously had, including factory fitted units. The unit also looks good when fitted.
Summary: This product is extremely impressive. Most importantly excellent sound quality with customizable stylish display. I am very happy with this product and use it with an SD card which slots in behind the facia very discreetly.
Fiddly controls almost impossible to use whilst driving; probably ...

Summary: Fiddly controls almost impossible to use whilst driving; probably more dangerous than trying to drive while using a mobile phone. "Format Reading" when trying to load the music directory from the SD card usually hasn't finished by the time I've driven to my local shops.
Summary: The main problem with this headunit is quite simply you have to have the handbrake on in order to use the hands free. So what is the point??? Also be aware that although it has bluetooth this is only for the handsfree, you CAN NOT use it to stream music from your bluetooth device.
Excerpt: I wanted a stereo which had total iPhone intergration but I didn't want a flip out screen and a Double Din unit will not fit into my car. I looked at three units, Alpine IDA X305s, Kenwood KIV-700 & the Pioneer MVH-8300BT.
