    Deciding on Head Unit

    Hello. I have a 1999 Ford f150, and i'm looking to get a headunit with full Ipod control (Fm transmitters = fail) through usb for around $150. Here are some I found:

    Really Dig this one, but it's pricey....
    Kenwood KDC-MP445U CD receiver at Crutchfield.com


    Really really like this one. Comes with installation gear and everything, has an Ipod compatible USB (not all are), free shipping, like the looks, and not absurdly expensive....
    Pioneer DEH-3200UB CD receiver at Crutchfield.com

    If I was to get a Sony, this would be the only one i would get, because anything cheaper can't support an ipod and anything more expensive is the same price as the Kenwood.
    Sony CDX-GT540UI CD receiver at Crutchfield.com

    After much searching, these were really the only ones i liked, but i'm open to suggestions. Are all these still good brands nowdays? Questions? Comments? Anything is welcome.
    Thank you for your time.
    -Brett

    Pioneer all day! I have the DEH-6800MP and I've always loved it. They're good HU's.

    Thank you both for the tips.
    White dragon, is JVC better than Pioneer and Kenwood these days?

    Pioneer has the PICO fuse issue, but regardless of what people say its all installer error. If you follow the directions you wont get the issue.

    Kenwood makes some good budget HU's.

    The JVC in this case has the better preout voltages which is key for SQ. If your not going for SQ its all user preference.
