Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

We purchased the unt a month ago and we recently took a 3 1/2 hr trip to visit our granddaughter at URI and our other grandchildren never once asked "are we there yet". The entertainment unit kept them occupied both going and coming. Money well spent. Thank you Crutchfield

Pros: Excellent picture quality and the screen size allows for good viewing.

Cons: So far no negatives

audiovox actually makin quality pieces..

Written by: michael from portland oregon on November 28, 2013

First off, I'm 35, grew up BIG INTO car audio, audiovox was hands down GARBAGE back mid late 90's and early 2000's. When I decided to do this and the sales guy recommended this unit I about fell over. Keep in mind I've still got 3 Orion 2500 hcca amps and pretty little zapco along with thousands in focal and diamond audio seps. I'm a audiophile, I'm not rich but hate throwin money at bad causes.. so anyhow. I was kind of put off and he assured me it was a quality unit and very nice for the price.. I'll say, he's absolutely correct. I'm now 5 months in on ownership and this little drop down is as nice as the alpine drop down in my old Tahoe. Picture quality is actually above par compared to units priced 4-6 hundred more... My only complaints are this... No hdmi input.. the only av input is a rca to 3.5 connecter... That there lets picture quality fail miserably when the xXbox is hooked up, it's still decent but if you're playingn bo2 the gamertag has a good amount of fuzz to it, don't get me wrong, it's legible and looks decent but this day in age this shouldnt have been overlooked.... An hdmi would be much more appropriate.. that said.. buy it if you are lookin for a unit to hush a 10 year old boy and 13 year old girl in the backseat.... Great buy at this price...

Pros: It makes French toast in the morning, looks good, has great picture and osd UI is great. Booyah...

Cons: No hdmi in, inferior, dated auxiliary input.
