The unit itself is alright, probably on par with other similar devices in this price range (from JVC, Pioneer, etc) but the user interface is incredibly stupid! It looks as though Sony UI developers have been living in a vacuum. It does not support internalization at all, so playing an mp3 with asian, arabic or cyrillic ID3 tags brings the unit to halt by trying to read the file. After about 10 minutes of unsuccessful read attempts, it just shuts off. Also keep in mind that if you're into long mixes over an hour long, the speeds of fast-forward and Rev are extremely slow (x2 max) and there is no control over the progress bar like you have in winamp. Second, it does not have any codecs what's so ever. So if you're planning on watching .mp4, .avi or .mov movie, you might as well take a laptop. I bought this particular model only because of TomTom, but even that gave up on me. I had instances when I was driving for an hour(!) and it was still not able to find any satellites. And lastly, the overall hardware design is pretty flimsy. It might just be me, but there are some loose parts in the screen that constantly rattles when you hit a bump. After such a horrible experience, I decided to build my own carputer.
