The Pros:Motorized screen can save tilt adjustment settings to account for user's viewing angle. System can work as a standard head unit with screen retracted. Well designed user interface when working with an iPod, full song catalog access, easy to browse.
The Cons:An amplifier is necessary for audiophile HD quality output. Shipped without a DVD lens screw, suffers wear and tear during shipping before it is even installed.
