    I’m writting to say that I’m pleasantly satisfied with my pyle dvd player in that all it’s been reviewed to do it has performed completely up to standard and so far i haven’t experienced any major problems whatsoever. But what i have faced is that because of my car’s dash the deck wasn’t able to fit flush into the din but it’s not an eyesore at all and the usb jack doesn’t work properly i have to toggle it to get it to pick up but that’s no problem because i was going to replace it with one that has a cable so that the flashdrive doesn’t stick out so far for anyone to knock it. I attached a rearview camera to it and it works beautifully also the bluetooth function also works nice no problems with that, with either the mobile phone calling or answering or playing music straight from my cell. All in all i’m totally satisfied but it’s a little annoying that everytime i start the car and the dvd player’s screen is open that it closes and then opens again but i guess that’s how they’re all designed to operate.

    This is my first in-dash DVD player, so I spent quite a bit of time researching. I finally decided that I would get an entry level unit to see how I would like it. After much deliberation, I Decided to go with a Pyle brand unit. I was very pleased with the huge feature set, as well as the ease with which the unit operates. The picture quality was much better than I expected and it functions nicely as just a stereo when video is not needed. I think this is definitely the way to go, especially if you’re on a budget.

    ***Updated 11/11/2011 – Added a few Pros (sound), and a few cons (remote, customization, EQ)***

    Its been a fun week alright, after dealing with someone breaking into my car and attempting to steal my previous stereo. Notice I said attempt: they ended up just breaking the thing instead trying to get it out.

    Anyways, I had been looking to replace my previous head-unit, a mid-upper end Panasonic HU, for something that had a few more features. The Panasonic worked great, but was several years old, and while it did its function as a stereo incredibly well, it didn’t do much else beyond that. So, looking into in-dash DVDs, there’s actually quite a bit of selection, but most of the reliable name-brands are still almost double the cost of these entry-level DVD manufacturers head units. I saw a few good reviews, and decided to go ahead and take a chance; got next day delivery, and installed it that day, easy-peesy.

    First, if you have no idea how to install a car stereo unit, then don’t think you can just order this and swap out your current OEM stereo, not gonna work. There are several more items you need, the two must-have’s being a replacement bezel for aftermarket stereos (OEM stereos come in all shapes and sizes, where as after-markets fit into DIM or double-DIM, important to standardize the sizes); the second must have is a wiring harness (technically you don’t, but for many reasons you should). Both of those can be found on Amazon most likely, and are car model/brand specific, so don’t think that Pyle will include your specific wiring harness, that’d be impossible. I can find the model for my brand (’05 Civic) for around $4, so we’re not talking a lot of money (some cars will also need additional adapters). You also need to know how to install it, and I’m not really gonna go into all that here, so basically, if you don’t know how to do it, have a pro do it, just make sure they are either 1) really good, or 2) really cheap; its not hard to do in most cases, but you can wreck parts of your car, and they can charge hundreds for a 20-min procedure, just depends.

    Onto the stereo itself: the thing’s a pretty solid device; it could be improved, but I’d say for the price its worth it. I’m gonna include a few notes about quality, and hope to better organize the review later when I have time, but figured I’d get it out there. This head unit is feature packed, and is so versatile for a knock off brand, I’m glad I ordered it.

    The bluetooth functionality of this unit is probably one of my favorite features; you can wireless stream audio, but I noticed it was a little scratchy-sounding compared to a pure hard-wired audio source, but the beauty of the bluetooth functionality is the ability to make calls and place it over your car stereo; for someone like me that HATES talking on the phone, this is awesome, because it sounds so much better then talking on the phone, and you can crank the volume up as well.

    There are several types of connections: USB, 3.5mm phono, RCA (in the back), SD, and bluetooth, so it really can take almost everything you throw at it. I love the 3.5mm jack in front, makes it super easy to connect MP3 players or phones to the car stereo.

    I tested a DVD, and the quality was pretty good, but it was a widescreen edition, and I haven’t messed with it enough to find the letterbox settings, if they exist; kinda sucks if they don’t, but not gonna kill the device for me, most our DVD’s are 4:3. ** I’ve since tested a few Family Guy dvds, and they looked really good, although there were a few jittery lines on certain colors.

    The screen is very responsive to touching, and has a pretty decent display quality as well.

    The screen can tilt to many different angles, you have no idea how awesome that is! My dash is angled pretty significantly, around 25 degrees upwards, and at the stock screen setting, the thing was difficult to read, and really difficult to reach for pressing on the screen.

    As for the sound, that’s become one of my favorite features as well. The sound quality is very nice; it is 80wattx4 (I’d assume 40w RMS x 4) which is slightly less than my less HU, but the output at high volumes is incredibly clean. I have high-end infinity components (which have good sensitivity/power), and you can crank it almost to the point of having your ears bleed; by far louder and cleaner than any friend’s cars I’ve been in a while (if you’re really an audiophile, yes, you can get cleaner louder with an external amp, but really most will not need one).

    For the cons that I can readily think of, it would be:

    1) too large of a remote; its nice to have so many buttons, but makes it a beast to hold in the car for daily use; not a huge deal or anything, but a little smaller would have been perfect. The remote also lacks major functionality, as you cannot manually tune stations, yet you can change…
