The title says it all. Looking for a deck that plays DVDs. The Alpine seems to be the logical choice, but I've been reading alot of posts about defective Alpines. Wondering if anyone else makes something that looks as good and sounds as good. Any suggestions????

I think he's talking about single DIN HU's... not flip-out screens.

I had a Clarion about 4-5 years ago that crapped out on me. Also, looking for a deck that doesn't have a screen....so like a cd receiver that plays DVDs. Check out the models in the title....that's what I'm looking for. I have a screen already, so to have two and pay the premium would be dumb in my case. Thanks for the suggestion!

For what its worth, the 9860 and 9861 haven't been released so no one knows how reliable they will be.

the 9860 has been out for over a year now and is quite proven.
