    cheap, but any good?!

    Hey guys, found this on ebay yesterday:

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...ory=14946&rd=1

    I'm wanting a headunit that will play the following:
    - DVDs
    - VCDs
    - SVCDs
    - MP3 CDs
    - normal CDs
    - and it HAS to have fm radio! (that will work in UK)

    the above item seems to have all this but I'm not sure on manufacturer.

    Also, I would prefer the lights on the HU to be green to match the rest of my "dash plans" (green leds, green painted bits etc)

    Anyone heard of that audio manufacturer? or does anyone know of a better HU to do all of the above? I'm willing to go to £300 maybe, if its a really decent HU!

    *edit* - forgot to put in link, there now

    Never heard of them, but at that price (£195 + postage) I may buy one just to see if it is any good! As I need an in dash DVD player.

    If you look there are 100 available and the option to 'Buy it now'

    hmm, seen this before, it is quite a common unit out of China that has been rebranded a few times. Plays DVD fine but build quality/sound quality is not exactly that of Alpine, Clarion, Panasonic and the likes but then again it is a lot cheaper than those makes.

    Merconnet has something similar @ roughly the same price. See http://www.merconnet.com/products.php?ProductID=216 for details.

    Remember the £30 delivery to the uk and the inevitable customs charges.

    I checked his ebay rating and it seems good, a few people have been caught with the customs charges £25-£30 but I've baught stuff direct from japan before and never had to pay customs so maybe the trend will continue.

    I think I'm gonna buy it, gotta sort out the screen first though (5" tft from other post!)

    Incidentally, anyone know any good audio installers?! in north east scotland preferrably!
