Default Jensen Vm9114?

What's the verdict on it? I want a touch screen but I don't have 3-600 for one. Also, what's the difference between the Vm9114 and the Vm9214? The only difference I can see is that it has the audio jack up front and is 50 bucks more. The max I want to spend is 250. Are there any comparable touch screens in that price range?

the vm9214 is ipod compatible and is packed with a lot more features than the other one. the other one is just a entry level flip out. go with the 9214 you wont be disappointed

Do not waste your money on Jensen. It is better than boss or dual or pyle, however.

Jensen isn't the best of the best but for a buyer on a budget they are pretty damn good for a full featured flip out for under 300. Sometimes they even have more features than the more expensive models.

go with Jensen. They are better known, better featured, and probably better warranty's. I have had my share of problems with installing power acoustik headunits in customers cars. They just feel like they are made cheap.

I just got a 1 month old vm9214 for 140 Let's just hope it's in one peice with no water damage lol.

"Dear bseballkid1999,

How long was it used? Why are you selling?

Hello,

To answer your questions, it was used for approx 1 month. I am selling it because I decided to go with a regular radio - in my car the only area to put a radio is right under the climate control, and when the screen would pop out it blocks the climate controls. So if I wanted to turn the AC on more, or the heater on, I had to close the screen, then re open it.

Everyone works perfectly, and looks/functions as brand new.

Enjoy your purchase"


I'm assuming that's a decent reason for selling.. I guess we'll see.
