4.0 out of 5 stars Works almost flawlessly., November 3, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: XO Vision XD103 Car Stereo Receiver with 20 watts x 4 and USB Port and SD Card Slot (Wireless Phone Accessory)
This stereo completely fills my needs to replace the basic and standard factory stereo (On a Mazda Protege DX 99'). If it's the first time you're trying to replace your old car stereo, this is a great choice.

What I like about this Stereo:

- Great value for your money, definitely a worthy upgrade of your old factory stereo.
- A very nice set of options and adjustments for the quality of the sound (Bass, Treble, Fade, Balance, EQ).
- Did not alter the quality of the sound of my car. Big thumbs up!
- Easy to install if you have the correct tools.
- Easy to use. It's not a complicated User Interface.

What I think it should be different but does not bother me much:

- It will not allow you to see the clock during your commute for longer than 10 seconds, it will switch back to either the station or the song's name (if you're USB, AUX or MMC), it should allow you to see the clock or the music information to your choice.
- It won't display the names of the songs completely, it has a character limit.
- Hard plastic makes it feel cheap, but it certainly does not look cheap at all.
- Screen should be brighter during sunlight, you can barely see the information if it's a very sunny day. It looks gorgeous at night though.
- It will read the music via USB/AUX/MMC based on how they are ordered in the card or device.

What I dislike about it:
- After a proper installation, every time I accelerate with the car, it makes a whistling noise. I was not paying much attention to it at the beginning, but now it's starting to be very annoying.

You should be using resistor spark plugs. Non resistor plugs will interfere with RF. I hope that will solve your problem, otherwise you will need to filter the voltage supplied to the receiver. Good luck!

To avoid that whistling noise you can buy a noise suppressor/filter, or you can try this first: You can connect another cable to the ground cable, most likely black, and attach that other cable in to the radio chassis, the metal part. that should fix the issue, plugging the ground to the stereo chassis.

Thank you for the tip Jonathan. I connected the ground cable to a metal part, I'll try changing it's position to see how it goes!

Hi, im looking to buy this radio for my car but i dont know much about it, does this radio comes with the big box that goes inside the dashboard or is it just the face of the radio that comes, thanks in advance

In reply to an earlier post on Apr 12, 2013, 11:37:41 AM PDT
Yes it does come with the box inside of the dashboard, it doesn't have a face that you can remove. The good thing is that it doesn't come with at CD/DVD player so the box is quite small and easy to move around.

most plug wires and plugs are resistive type. the noise suppresser may just quiet the whistling some. separate your power and ground wires, running them too close together will cause the whistle that goes with the rpms.
