Default What should I buy to replace my Sportster R?

Well, as I have been reading a lot about on here, my backlight went out on my beloved Sportster R. I'm looking to get a new unit, but just not a Sportster R, not after all the bad stuff I've read about them.

My first thought was to get an in dash receiver, but I couldn't find one that had replay functions which I now cannot live without!!!

I need some guidence here!!

Sporster 4?
Xact XTR8 Replay?
Stillleto? (Way more than I'm looking to spend!!)

If you were seriously considering a Stilleto, you might want to look at the S50. They're a lot cheaper now than when they first came out.

The Sportster4 uses the universal docking system, like the Starmate4, and, maybe, others. I think Alpine is coming out with an adapter that will allow you to use the plug-and-play features of a univeral docked receiver.

I know nothing... NOTHING! about the Xact XTR8 Replay, so I have no opinion.
