Value: Cheap. But you get what you pay for.

Look/design: Not bad, but nothing to write home about. The touch buttons look nice. The display is actually visible in sunlight, which is a plus (on maximum illumination... Which causes problems as there's no dimmer switch when headlights are on)

Durability: Didn't break for the 2 weeks I used it... So can't really give a good estimation on that. Giving 3 stars to average it out.

Features: USB, Radio, CD/DVD. I'll give it 3 stars again because although it has these features, they're rather poorly implemented.

Ease of use: Terrible terrible terrible. However. The 'touch' interface buttons are pretty terrible. They won't register half the time, but at the same time, you can't just adjust the stereo by 'feel'. All 'advanced' features (such as going from one directory to another on USB) must be done from the remote, which could use a bit better 'readability' while driving, as it's a tad too complicated if you 'lose' your thumb location on it. The USB file manager looks like something from MS Dos Shell (look it up), except it truncates the file names to the point that you see about 4 characters, and that's all you see unless you start playing the song (makes it hard to find what you want to see).

Overall: It had a lot of promise, and with the right software, it would have been pretty good. I returned it to get something with more physical controls, but a simpler display. After all, I should be watching the road, not my car stereo, anyways.
