Default which one to buy? (updated!)

i'm going to go get a C.D. Player for the bonnie tommarow. What kind should i look at and what kinds should i stay away from? I'm looking at spending around $150-$190. I want a **** for the volume, red backlight ( to match the rest of the interior lighting), and a remote control.

Got some feedback/sudgestions for me?

Thanks!

Pioneer DEH-P6600 works nicely. I'm not sure what color the lights are tho...
DEH-P3600 for $162 at walmart.com and the DEH-P4600MP for $180

Don't go sony, or Jensen or Road Gear
