Help Jon Choose an in-dash DVD unit

Hey again everybody, you may remember me from such threads in the past as "Check out my NSX Rear Conversion" or "Help Jon choose a Head Unit." Well, the purpose of today's thread is to ask your opinion about which in-dash DVD unit I should choose.

Requirements/Suggestions - from high to...lesser:

Fits within 1-din slot
Motorized flip-out
In-dash DVD
Touch Screen
7" screen (6.5 can be okay if it's a good unit)
Reliable/NameBrand
Bling factor (shiny, blue lights, etc)
Cheap

Anything additional (like built-in tv tuner) can be part of it too, but i really don't care about more features past what was mentioned. I want to hear all suggestions but most likely I'll also be going off ebay prices so you can suggest me prices and links if you have time. If not, just a mere suggestion is great. I will go from around 850 to about 950 installed so I want to be reasonable. Much thanks everybody!

eclipse is the best... but not cheap...

there aren't many selections for this... i think each major brand has only 1 choice.

(pioneer, clarion, eclipse, and pioneer)

pioneer is probably most cost efficient...

Here is the one I wanted, the AVX-P7300DVD. It is not a touch screen. Also I hear with a touch screen, there is a possiblity that you can mess up the motor or something.

not a touch screen thou i don't think...

that's waaaay too much for waaay too little....

you're gonna have to deal without touch screen (i know eclipse has one) if you want it for that price.

it'd probably help allot if you could get a separate dvd player.

pioneer avhp7490dvd is nice it doesnt have a touchscreen but it is a 7inch screen with a seperate processor with DSP, dolbydigital and all that other $hit and it comes witha centerchannel speaker for that 6.1....pioneer should be coming out with a new one AVIC-N1....it monitors the performance of your car... but its 2,200
