I purchased this head unit in the beginning of 2012. Still going strong today. It has a ton of features packed in for the price point. Three pair of 4V RCA outputs, a nice looking screen that is capable of fitting three full lines of information (versus 1 or 2 on many other units), a HPF, and one other feature that a really love that most head units don't have...... rear USB. Nearly every other single-din head unit around this price point has their USB port on the front face. This means I have an ugly cord hanging from my dash and I have to stash my iPod somewhere. Rear USB lets me stash the iPod in the glove box, see no cords, and keep everything out of sight from thieves.
I do have a couple of small gripes though. First, I hate the forward/back lever surrounding the volume knob. It's something Pioneer started trying out and I think it's super cheesy and trinket-y. Second, the USB connection to iPods is not flawless. Sometimes the iPod doesn't pause and turns off when I turn off the car. Sometimes it won't unpause and I have to dig in the glove box, only to find out that the iPod is locked up in kind of a half-Pioneer half-iPod state and must be hard reset. Both are pretty rare (once every ~6 weeks), but after 2 years of use, it's annoying. Last, the call quality on the bluetooth is not too good. I've tried moving the microphone to multiple locations over my period of ownership, but zero improvement.
All in all, a great offering. It has a a wonderful sound to it. I would HIGHLY recommend Pioneer's head units, but probably not this model.
