I've had a few days to test drive the NX500. So far, I've encountered some problems that bother me to the point of having to reduce my original review (above) by 1 star.

1) The screen has too much reflection during the day. At times, I can't really see the touch screen, especially when I have to use my headlights and the NX500 has an auto-dim for the display. When it auto-dims, the screen is really light to see, however, if the sun or outside light is shining through the windshield, then I can't really see the screen. Today I had to use my headlights as it was raining, and because it was still "light" out, I couldn't see the display as the glare reflection was too much. I have ordered an anti-glare film, so I really hope that helps.

2) My NX500 has an issue with the Sirius. A few times already, the function touch buttons for selecting channels, presets, etc. would stop working. They would almost gray out and not function at all. The other touch buttons worked fine (back, Navigation, etc), but not on Sirius. Each time this happened, I had to power off and power on the NX500 in hopes of rebooting the system. This did work but it's very annoying that this is happening when listening to SAT radio.

I think because of these issues (on top of other minor issues that I dismissed, like no SD Card slot), I'm giving it an overall rating of 4. For the price, which isn't too bad, I would hope they would have solved the glare issue, and the problem with Sirius locking up, I don't think it rates a 5 for durability.
