Price: $209.99
Pros: Everything, colors, sound, quality, custom settings for cabin and speaker locations, size, etc. You will not be disappointed.
Cons: The menus will frustrate you if you do not use the manual or take your time. There are no preset buttons, you have to use the menus to set them and can get frustrating if you dont take your time or read the manual.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: First of all, the kenwood unit looks great, was super easy to install and took me a few minutes to get the menu down, and at first I thought that the sound was off (heavy bass) but I was able to adjust the settings and get a real nice clean sound.

For those that read these reviews, the screen is glossy, the colors are vibrant and not only are there 10-12 preset colors, the system allows for complete custom color of both the screen, and the accents (with a neat little option to alternate colors per side).

Sound is awesome. USB drive connectivity is great, sound shaping is fantastic and this unit delivers power.

Bottom Line: I bought this deck with a pair of kenwood 6x8's (and got a $50 discount). There is no better deal on this site. period. If you buy it, read the manual and take the time to get to understand the menus.

Price: $199.99
Pros: Direct USB iPod connect.
Cons: slightly confusing remote
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Installed this head unit because of the USB and AUX port that it had. Makes it easier to control your music while driving. The color changing neon is also a very cool feature, but if you set it to change with the beat, it can be very distracting. Picture of deck installed included.
