Summary: For the price I paid, I got a terrific product, of course we know Sony, so we trust the name. It is good for very simple things, runs out of tape too quickly, I am sure they have longer mini-cassettes,these came with the recorder, there are two speeds to record with also, may have a lot to do with it. Fits right in my pocket, I can use it in class lectures, and business meetings too.
Summary: I've bought the MEXBT3900U, MEXBT4000U and recently the MEXBT4100U over the past 4 years for different vehicles. In all honesty the 4000 and 4100 are virtually the same device, cosmetic differences aside. We use them with Samsung phones for both hands free calling and music streaming and occasionally with USB pen drives. I can't recall ever having put a CD in any of them, it being something of a redundant format for us. Great sounding reliable devices.
Summary: Everything is great with this radio, i am happy and will recommend. It's quicker to list the things i don't like: No RDS TEXT feature, (Which the old factory fitted stereo had, and i now miss, as i discovered many great artists via this feature). Sound is a little tinny, (Seems there is no way to improve the sound anymore that to enable Xplod and Loud settings).
Summary: The controls on this unit are fiddly to use while driving and without the remote it was a pain ,as usual they are built to the left hand drive sector as the controls are all on the left ,why dont they make them centrally or right handed. The phone use was useful and the sound quality is good with a great bass and the option to use USB ,bluetooth input from your phone to play music makes this a good deal, but I had to send it back as my new car wiring would keep the power...
Summary: Bought as a replacement to a similar Sony car stereo, when I required the addition of telephone. Sound excellent on phone, FM reception a little erratic and music from a bluetooth device not very good. USB however works beautifully.
Summary: Got this because of the Bluetooth connectivity and it hasn't disappointed! No more fumbling around for phone get straight in car leave phone in pocket or on phone mount, no need to touch it again scroll through phone book contacts & or music files from head unit.
Summary: This is so easy to install and set up a child could do it, the sound quality is excellent my only grip is that the cd player is very sensitive all I did was drive over the slow down strips at 40 and the sound broke up. Not a major issue as I will mostly use Bluetooth iPhone but still for the price the cd should be as good as the rest?
