This thing is really cool, especially for only $140. I really like the illumination change feature, where you can pick or make your own colors for the display, and the button lights on the deck any way you want. It has all the nice features you need for fine tuning the sound, like the Low freq cut off for your speakers, so not to play too low of notes. Helps with reducing distortion. You have the 5 band equalizer that really helps fine tune what you want to hear. You have the blue tooth capabilities which is pretty cool for streaming pandora from your phone, or music in general. It also comes with a little microphone for the blue tooth that you hook up to your steering column so when people call, you can talk into it. It works alright, sometimes people can't hear me so well, but with all the road noise from my old 90 Corolla, it doesn't surprise me. And also, the 3 4v outputs on the back allow you to add amplifiers in for your speakers, and a subwoofer if you choose.
I would say, the only cons is that it doesn't have HD radio. I got this one not caring much, because I never listen to the radio anyway. I also got it because it has Android hookup capability for Pandora. But then when you hook your phone up that way, it wont allow you to change Pandora stuff from your phone, and it gets confusing because there's no way to like or dislike a song. From what I can tell, you can only skip songs. BUT, if you just use the blue tooth hook up only, it actually works better so you control everything from your phone, and can still change the song with the buttons on the deck.
So all in all, it's definitely worth the money. It's not hard to use, looks really good, and has good features. If you want HD radio, and basically the same deck but dont care about Android hook up, I would get the "Pioneer DEH-P8400BH".
