head unit replacement

I'm considering replacing my head unit in 3 or 4 months ( or should it choose to die before this time comes). I'm really wanting a double DIN head unit with all the functions and capabilities for tuning purposes that my current cd player has. I have a Kenwood KDC-X559 which was top of the line 5 or 6 years ago but this thing has been through 4 cars that I've owned, all the buttons are fading, and I'm tired of looking at the big gap the bracket that I have produces( its the same one, pretty much everyone on here has).

The most important function on the kenwood I have is the crossover controls it has built in. I can tune my 4-channel with the head unit rather then get external crossovers. I don't have component speakers and I'm currently running my tweeters on the head unit with distortion blockers run inline and the center channel is disconnected. This set up works great and I don't think I need to mess with adding more components, I just want to replace the head unit. The reason I'm writing this is because of a double din I came across from Power Acoustic Model PTID-5800.

this link has thus far given me most of the information I was looking for as far as tuning purposes is concerned, problem is noone has given it reviews as far as functionality and durability. Through all of my searching, I've come to find that this one is well within my price range and has all of the features I've been looking for ( DVD, MP3, MP4, CD-RW...etc) built in. let me know what you guys think.

Kole audio makes power acoustic i believe, i have a kole amp and i have nothing but problems with it and i had kole speakers and i didn't like them so im guessing there radios might be the same. I wouldn't cheap out on the radio thats the most important part, why don't you look and the kenwood double din radios? i would save up and get the kenwood.
Piece of shit. Stick with a well known, quality brand like Eclipse, Pioneer, Alpine, etc.
I had a feeling about this because the cheap price looks too good to be true. I've been looking at the kenwoods and alpine double dins, I was just shocked at how cheap it was. Probably better to pay a little more anyway.
