It's a good head unit. I put one in my girlfriend's car and she really likes it for it's simplicity. I like it because it's cheap, it gave me enough tuning options to get her car sounding good, and it's got full iPod control. It also lets you control an iPod by hand instead of through the HU if you want. It's definitely worth the money.

I've had mine in for about 2 weeks now and I love it. Not saying it's the best deck available but for someone not trying to go above and beyond their means, this is a great deck. Very good sound control, nice preouts, and the display can be changed to match just about any interior. Lots more good but too long to list. I doubt you'll be disappointed especially if you're new to this.
