what do you guys think about eclipse 8443 HU?

I was wondering what your thoughts on Eclipse 8443 HU.. I think it's got too much gadgets for me but I heard that it's a good HU.. I like it because it's not flashy and it's subtle.. thoughts? is 399 price good for it?

I haveto disagree with the early model Eclipses which I hated with zeal and was unfortunate to have multiple units pass by my hand and in lotsa friend's cars, these were prone to skipping problems:

1998 model year: 5341, 5303 (fixed with the 5341r and 5303r)

2000 model year: 5440, 5441, 5443, 5504, 5506 (fixed with the 54400, 54410, 55430, 55040, and 55060).

Display issues, too dim... face durability was horrible. I've owned several 2 channel eclipse amps which I thought were too brassy in sound and internal components werent topnotch.. Eclipse speakers.. are ho hum at best... nothing spectacular and nothing to bad.. just alright. Back then customer service would be described as arrogant reps... who could care less.

Hopefully things have picked up in 2004.. but I've been soured enough to not look at eclipse again. But that's just one guys opinion.
