Double Din head unit buying advice

Maybe this topic has been discussed before, but I am still confused about my purchase. Well, I am in the market for a new head unit and wondering if anyone can give me some advice. Currently I am looking at Pioneer AVH-P3100DVD In-Dash Double-Din DVD multimedia A/V receiver. I really like its design and overall functionality. If you have any better recommendation, please let me know. I would like to keep it under $400.

Thanks..
