Default should i return a sony head unit for a pioneer one?

i ve got this sony cdx 1200 u (entry level unit) on amazon, but i read that sony head units are not good. so i have doubts on whether or not returning it and getting a pioneer deh 3900bt

it would be 65 bucks vs 110 bucks as regarding the prices.
is it worth the trouble? I would have to take it down from the car and wait for an another week with no car stereo soo

You can't put it on the internet unless it is true!

Does the Sony unit work for you? If so why bother?

Last I looked Sony actually owned design centers and manufacturing capacity. Pioneer farmed almost everything to contractors.

In that budget they will be all almost the same, just look for the features and design.
