Product Shot 1 The Pros:AM/FM tuner reception is good, can even work with weaker signals. Buttons are easy to work with, don't need to be looking at them to feel where you are on the panel. Included remote control is full featured, feels comfortable to work with.

The Cons:Included Bluetooth mic is low quality, people have a hard time hearing it. Lacks USB support, limited expandability of functions. When streaming music, id3 tag data doesn't scroll across the screen.
