David, Church Stoke

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
The radio sounds great once you play about a bit with the settings and the bluetooth is amazing, so easy to set up and picks up my phone as soon as i enter the car. The Ipod function is very good as well as it charges the Ipod at the same time
Bad points:
Front display can seem very bright at night, you can dim it but that's only for the display not the blue lights around the volume button but you soon get used to it

Eddie, London

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Blue background lighting to selection buttons makes identification easy - certainly a lot easier than a previous model (with red background lighting) I'd purchased for another car.
Bad points:
Difficulty in identifying/locating albums on USB flash drive when using USB input. (Though this may be the fault of the flash drive or me).

david, Darlington

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Excellent quality and easy to use. The built in Bluetooth with the built in microphone makes connection to a mobile phone a breeze, none of those over the ear or sun visor receivers needed. The USB socket also means that a memory stick can be plugged in a MP3's played through the unit. An ipod plugged in there is automatically recognised and when in use is charging the battery.

I love the 'Zappin' feature which gives a short preview of CD/ipod music tracks, when you get to the track you want, press a button and it plays
Bad points:
I've not found any.

Jim, Livingston Sony gear lover

Score 6.0/10
Good points:
Good sound, bluetooth works well
Bad points:
Too many steps to switch from cd to radio, operating buttons very small and crammed into a small area - i have to look at them to change things. A real pain that it does not switch on and off with the ignition - i probably wouldn't have bought it if i had realised this. Otherwise what you would expect from Sony in terms of performance

Steve, London Hi-Fi enthusiast Music lover

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Value is top notch, to have all the features this unit offers for such a low price is what attracted me in the first place. The icing on the cake is "They all work as well as anyone could expect them to" From hands free to the quality of mp4a files off USB, the only downside is I now realise my speakers don't do this unit justice!
Bad points:
The mention off it takes a FIVE SECOND press of the Blue-tooth button to start the search for new devices could be clearer, but once I got over the initial impatience to get up n running and read the instructions a bit more carefully I had no more problems in the setup!
So bad points! Non really, Have already recommended friends! But a quick listen and play, does this best.

max, Runcorn Accurate honest eye opening

Score 2.0/10
Good points:
When working the stereo provided good quality and functionality.
Bad points:
The stereo lasted just over a year and when contacting Sony I was told the warranty was only a year. Awful customer service and they genuinely didn't care about the quality of their products or satisfaction of their customers.
