Great Product and Service

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Purchased as an "open box item'. When I received it it looked like new and no open box. Easy to hook up and continue on with my netflix movies. Great customer service when I called to ask what an "open box" item was. Representative was very friendly and knowledgeable.

Pros: Product works well and great customer service

Cons: none
