Pioneer DEH 4000UB
Advantages: Brilliant sound quality, looks good
Disadvantages: Tricky to use , usb port doesnt recognise ipod , cant save Fm radio stations
I have had the head unit since January cost me around £75 from Argos although similar and like for like products can be found in Halfords or upland outlets. The overall quality of the head unit is real good however it does have a few drawbacks. The first drawback is that it's pretty tricky to fit into a car if you not familiar with the installation. The idea of this head unit is to link or adapt your iPod/mp3 through the usb port in the front. This is where a problem unfolds it allowed me to play my iPod for a while but it wouldn't allow me to change the songs from the iPod I had to flick through on the "random". I then had the problem of it not recognising the iPod after a week or so, having transferred my songs to a usb stick everything is working well although I can't select a specific song without having to go through my whole playlist to look for it. If listening to the radio you should expect a task as it doesn't hold or save any FM radio stations meaning you have to flick through for the station of your choice. However the sound quality does make up for these setbacks.
Summary: Cheap effective does the job if you like putting your songs on a usb otherwise not as good
