" Great looking car radio/cd/dvd; however if you are not teccie, this is not the easiest product to set up so finding it very difficult to get the features to work. Which means another visit to Halfords to get them to explain how to use this properly or finding a 'man' to work this out! Otherwise it was a great buy and looks wonderful. Highly recommended and even better that it was reduced. "

" The product is good and the features are excellent. The build quality is not so good though. Quite often the buttons need to be pressed twice. Also it gets stuck thinking if you insert a DVD recorded with too many songs - 4 GB "

" DVD Playback quality is great on the 3" Screen. A bigger screen would be nice, however for the price it is fair, and you can plug in extra screens
I found the RDS Radio works a lot better than my previous head unit, The reception was poor from my old radio.
The face plate could have been designed easier and quicker to fit.
There are a lot of features on this unit for the bargain price, Card reader and USB is useful, I have even looked digital camera pictures on the screen. however It would have been good if it played MP4 like my Ipod, it does have DivX supported.
I have experienced no crashing of the unit so far.
If your buying it as DVD upgarde to replace your current stock CD Player then the sound quality fine and does the job.
However if you want exceptional sound quality or are planning to run amplifiers and High quality speakers then you would need to invest in a more expensive unit. "

Cons: usb goes back to track 1
" very easy to use. The only downside is if you use a USB flash stick it starts from the first track every time. So if you pop to the shop or fill up with fuel when you get back in you have to scroll through to where you were! "

" The front off panel is a little on the chunky side, trying to place the unit front is a little clumberson, Trying not to touch the screen while inserting the front is quite difficult, also the mp3 playing is not as good, as it does not allow selection of tracks or albums which you want to listen too.

Pros: fills gap in dashboard, will be happy when car gets scrapped with unit
Cons: browser is short character, cant search by metadata, certain features on the remote only, flimsy fascia, poor sound quality, no dim function, takes considerable time to load a small flashdrive, buttoms are poorly laid out and not intuitive, af useless for rds
" A horrible, cheap and nasty unit.
I bought this, because with the two boys now, my need is no longer to have whatever tune I fancy coming to mind being played.
The System has no browse facility for MP3's and so forget the idea of locating by artist/album etc. You will end up using an MP3 player and using the line in.
Sound quality very poor. I'm not a music buff, but it's quite apparent that it's bad!
DVD's - Yep, it plays them, no real problems with that feature.
Fascia is a pain to get on, and flimsy.
The radio's RDS AF is useless.
When you plug in a flashdrive, the machine always plays the first track alphabetically first. My tunes are slowly being deleted from 'A' onwards!
If you plug and and play on random, and never need to go back a tune (Kids - they love the 'again' thing!) it's fine. As soon as you want to go back, or start from where you left off - useless.
Oh, the folder structure support is not 255 characters, but shorted names (like old Dos file names!); which makes finding a track even more awkward.
The screen is bright blue LCD, and you can't switch the backlight down/off. Very annoying at night, so I leave the fascia open.
A horrendous, horrendous mistake. "

Pros: good overall unit
Cons: won't read sdhc cards
" Although overall this isn't a bad unit and is certainly fair value for the money, I was very disappointed that it refuses to recognise SDHC cards, only plain SD cards, which severely limits the available storage space, and there doesn't seem to be a firmware upgrade to allow their use either. "
