Head Unit Eye Candy: Post Pics of your HU here

Hello,

This thread should help everyone who has not upgraded their head unit decide what to install on their vehicle aesthetically speaking. Please post the following:

1. Picture of your INSTALLED head unit / Av receiver / Navigation
2. Brand: Alpine / Pioneer / Clarion etc...
3. Model Number
4. If possible picture of your HU while in operation at night.

I got the same one, on newegg, disappointed with it.

On a few sites it says its WMA playable. newegg didn't say it was, so I should have trusted them.

Plus a few days ago, when I was driving, it tried to switch folders (MP3 cd) and it turned itself off after like 20 seconds of doing nothing.. I tried to turn it back on.. nothing... hit the tilt/eject... that worked... didn't eject the cd tho... clicked everything nothing... min later I come to a light... turn my car off then back on... loads up, spits the cd... I put it back in.. worked fine..

plus hitting the folder up and down is like an art form.. you have to be sooo percise

If you paid the price that was listed above for it (399) then to be fair I don't think you can really expect much. It seems more like a unit that if it doesn't work you might as well chuck it and buy another one. Not to toot my own horn but my deck retails for quite a lot more and I can honestly say after having Clarion and Pioneer desk previous the quality of the Alpine one is ahead of the rest.
