i got the 8600 and love it, is the flip around face really worth that extra 100-150?

On my deh-p740mp hu the mp3 track take about 5 Seconds to change.

Wow I love flash but then again I believe the more things that can break the more they will. If you buy the decks from a authorized retailer that has a warrenty I would say the 960. If you're a ebay hound like myself stick with the 860.

I have a 960mp and it is great. I have no problems with it. looks nice, sounds nice, and you can hide the flashy screen if you get tired of it!

i would say the 860mp. the only advantage the 960mp has i the dual screen and more screensaver stuff and you can download all that from free from pioneer anyway. after about a week i turned off all the background pics,screensavers ect anyway and now i want to see if can change the text to a biolite-ish font and have it all one color with the screensaver software so i think yo should just buy the 860 and take the money you saved to buy some cd's or the xm tuner.

I would say the 860MP.....why?.....Because i am looking to sale mine.....only because it is too flashy for my tastes....my friend has an Alpine 9833 and i like it much better

I have had it for only 2 months......it is MINT

I own the 960 and have never had problems with the flip down screen and this is the best HU that I have ever owned and it never skips like my old head units.

960mp. Just cause I have one and its the best deck I've ever had. I bought mine off Ebay, and its was only $30 more than the 860mp. well worth it I think. I always love it when I meet a new chick and the face plate is covered. We drive for a while and she is impressed by my subs, and amp install, and just when you know she is thinking, "Wow good looking guy, nice car, nice subs, but what is with that boring *** cd player", just then I hit the remote and the face drops down to a home made movie of me banging her. Then she does just that. (slight exageration but you get the idea).

Anyways, its cool to show people and if the screen gets annoying it can be covered.
