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"...
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!
Summary: The microphone on this product to enable you to make hands free calls is of no use at all and with no facility to add an external mic it only serves as a good radio. The Bluetooth function to link to phone and listen to music works well. Just a shame you can't make phone calls on it
Sony DSXA50BT Car Radio with MP3 Player / Bluetooth

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.
Summary: ..only allows you to pair one phone at a time (which is annoying if you share a car with your wife) and the unit feels (and looks) considerably cheaper than the previous budget Sony model I replaced it with (which was ~5 years old).

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: 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.
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!
