I paid just under £200 for this head unit about 4 months ago. I went with Pioneer as I was aware of there good reputation and I was impressed with the price. As will be detailed in this review I was not disappointed and Pioneer lived up to there name. It looks great so I can't imagine it not fitting with any car.
Straight out of the box I found that this unit was fairly easy to install, but saying that I know a bit about audio and electronics so for those less technically minded it might be an idea to get somewhere like Halfords to install it (probably less than £20) I comes with a remote control which I personally find a bit pointless as you're sat right next to the unit but for those that like them it's there. It is very easy to use with the buttons being clearly marked and the menus being simple. The only downside was it didn't come with the radio presets but this takes no time to programme (plus you can choose your own instead of what the manufacturer thinks you want). A great upside for me is the connectivity with external devices via USB, that means iPod, iPhone and any other USB device.
I have found that this is a very reliable and well built bit of kit. I have had no problems with CD reading or the buttons not responding. Once set up it is easy to use and I do use it an awful lot. I will update this review if I come across any problems.
This Pioneer is very cheap for what you get, I would say the best in the class. It has all the functionality required of a car stereo and more with its USB connectivity. This come highly recommend by me.
This is an excellent stereo for not too much money. With Pioneer you know you will get superior quality and this unit will not let you down. The unit is one of the best in its class from the looks to the usability, the sleek design means it will look good in any car. Something not mentioned in the produnt description nis that you can hook your ipod up via the usb connection you would normally use for your computer, as well as being able to hook up a usb device, mp3 player and with optional extras, even able to stream your music from your phone through your car speakers. The only downside would be that initially setting your radio settings can be a bit harder than normal as you do not have the usual 1-6 pre-sets which a lower budget stereo would usually have, however this is solved by using the remote control, or just playing with the stereo for a bit to get used to it. Overall a very good stereo for the money.
