Default Power Acoustik 8.3 inch headunit?

I recently saw this 8.3 inch screen headunit power acoustik model : PTID-8310NRand i was wondering if anyone had any problems with this unit. I've searched around at reviews and dident see any problems but i figured someone on the forums might know. its relitively cheap at $220 brand new but has a unique design and bigger screen then most flipouts. Soundstream also makes one same exact design for 50 bucks more. heres a video of what it looks like its pretty cool

any after market decks gonna genraly sound better than stock. the monte carlo..maybe not, they do have decent stock systems. this deck..i coudlnt tell you a thing about it, but i can tell you based on the price and features, the features that will be lacking are likley gonna be SQ. their are just far to many higher end functions for them to afford to do it with out cutting back at that price range.

looks cool though, if i just wanted a deck, this would be a very apealing deck. very cool stuff, looks pretty snappy too, not to slugish looking like other cheap touch screen decks.

i dont have experience with it but like walkingonabullet said it is lacking in features. you would be way better off getting a pioneer,alpine, kenwood touch screan.

i think it looks pretty cheap, and if it's like any other cheap flip up headunit it will probably stop working within a year or two.

i'd just spend the extra money on a quality product and not have to worry about it going bad

X1000!! My uncle has owned many cheap flip outs like Dual and power acoustic, most stopped working after only a few months!!
