The (Jensen HD5212) has to be one of the coolest stereo's for the money I have seen in a while. It comes with HD radio which is only going to be good if you have a good HD signal in your area so don't blame Jensen if you can't get it, the radio works well. The 5212 also plays CD'S, burned CD's as well. It also offers USB in front, only for USB sticks 2gb. Behind the face handles an SD card for more music 255 files, if that's not enough you can hook any mp3 player through the front AUX input using headset extension cord (included).Watch a movie on ipod video with huge sound. Not while driving of course. If you don't like that and you want your stereo to take over your ipod they provide a ipod cable for the glove box or where ever you want to mount it and forget it, the Jensen 5212 takes over through the head unit while it charges it through the stereo. No more cigarette lighter chargers needed. The sound through added amps is incredible. Also has loudness button for more bang. Fade controls for the led display. Satellite hookup on back for satellite radio. (Satellite radio not included)another RCA input on the back of the unit for anything you have with RCA hookup. (Sound only not video) So basically the Jensen HD5212 does: HD RADIO/ TUNER/ MP3/ WMA/ USB/ CD/ SD CARD/ IPOD/ MP3 PLAYERS/ Satellite Ready/ CD changer hookup on back through RCA or any other device. ALL CABLES INCLUDED FOR IPOD & MP3 PLAYERS! For the money it's one heck of a deal at [$].. I replaced my alpine and was nervous, but am real happy. CONS: Controls are a little hard to find, led display hard to see in the day only some angles. Ipod controls hard to use on radio if you have thousands of songs, you have to make play lists to get to them or click five thousand times to get to song five thousand. Also comes with remote control for beach party or turning unit up in volume while outside your car. You have full control with the remote. Just can't list it all. Nice product, read instructions most bad reviews are because to big of USB CARD, SD CARD is used 2gb only. I give it a 5 star, only draw back in sound is low level hiss even when amps are turned down but is gone when you get to 4 on the volume. That's just being picky. No unit does what this does all in one. Good Luck.
