I bought this as a surprise for my husband last Christmas when he had been begging for a Satellite radio system. I thought it was very affordable compared to the other ones out there, I liked the large LCD screen it came with and it seemed to meet all of our needs. It was important to me to have one that could easily be taken from car to car so we could move it from our mini van for trips to our car for day to day use. This is very easy to take from car to car and very easy to use. It has great pre-programming options for your favorite stations and the buttons are large enough to easily see in the dark, each number button lights up along with the LCD screen. We have had some issues with the transmission, especially when you go by towers of electircity, etc. which can become quite annoying when traveling. Overall this is an o.k. system for the money if you have XM satellite radio.
