Default New Head Unit Ideas

Tomorrow I'll be heading out for a new head unit for Bonne. I do like the one I have now but It doesn't have certain features I need.

Mainly I'm a fan for sony'* Xplod head units. I put one in my old Buick Regal and it was very good audio and looks wise. But if anyone here has any suggestions I'd love to hear 'em

Looking for:

Aux in port (front or back of the unit doesn't matter)
Under $130
Ease of Use
A USB port and an SD card slot would be a plus but not required

I am with Haro. I would definitely go with the Pioneer. From my experience they have the best features for the money.
That'* really just my preference though. If you like the Sony, that looks like a good unit.
The wife had on before and we were happy with it.

I will also say pioneer I have a sony deck that is just sitting in my room I dislike them greatly but it came with the car so I didn't have a choice. if you are dead set of sony i could make you a heck of a deal. I will say that it is only pioneer for me.

Thanks for the suggestions guys, But I already got my Head unit and installed it a few days back

I am a fan of Sony head units..... I like the sound and thump. (the aux jack in the front helps too....)

Looks like it does everything you wanted, I assume you got it for a good price.
