Only you can really decide that, depending on the rest of your setup and exactly what you're looking to get out of it. It's a decent fold out DVD player for the money. If I were in the market I'd probably be looking at that and maybe the Kenwood KVT-617. The only reservation I might have would be the 2V preouts and as such I might think about spending a few more bucks and going with the Kenwood KVT-717. But that Clarion isn't a bad unit.
