The Pros:Graphics look nice, provides an interesting background. Displays plenty of information at once. Sound quality is clear and well-defined, makes the most of OEM speakers.
The Cons:Display is sometimes hard to read, backgrounds can be distracting. Many of the buttons are a bit small and hard to find until you get used to them.
