    Stay away from your cheap ebay $hite, it'll sound like crap and break down in the future. That goes for ripspeed cr@p aswell

    I'd gor for one of the bigger brands, if you can find them a pioneer p5900 or an alpine d105r will be at good prices now.

    If you want something more "current" ranges there's the pioneer p5000 and the alpine d106r.

    I'd recommend the alpine screen as the SQ is fantastic and the screen quality is probably one of the best out there.

    Also are you aware that they don't have "tv" built into them?

    Yeah I wasnt gonna go cheap anyway...hate ripspeed shite, I wanted alpine out of all the makes as my current headunit is alpine and its perfect, does everything and looks subtle and stuff.

    I have actually posted this up on another site and had a link to the d106r sent to me and looking at that it seems just what im after! I wanted to get the latest models as I dont want something out of date by the time it gets here.

    Yeah I am aware of that mate, just wanted it for dvds or stuff I rip from my laptop...cheers anyway. I just been thinking about getting one for a while and now I spent out on everything else for the car its the last thing I can think of doing, also Im doing more milage lately and going to alot more shows so I think I could actually warrent spending out to get one as it would get used.

    I can't recommend the d106 enough mate. The only thing i find it lacks is a usb input. Would have been an advantage to hook up an external hdd to store movies on but it's nothing a big ipod couldnt cope with

    Awesome, worth making sure you get the right ipod cable then mate. The 422i is the normal audio cable but if you want video i think you need the kce-430iv
