Question Due to amazon problems

Due to problems we have yet to recieve my HU adaptor let alone have a tracking number or anything. So, that means I don't have to deal with all the sony HU problems I heard about because we're gonna have them cancel the deal (maybe get something back for screwing up). And now I'm going to pick up a Sportster 4 or Sportster Replay.

Question, which one is better? I want to be able to get a boombox or a home set-up dealie. Are there any other boxes I could do? I like the idea of getting my NFL scores and updates.

I would recommend either the Sportster 4 or the Starmate 4. The Sportster 4 has many more accessories than the Sportster Replay, and looks much sharper along with a much smaller radio. The Starmate 4 has the same features as the Sportster 4, only a smaller display, a smaller size, and $25 cheaper. Both use the same universal docks, so all of the accessories are the same. You have two choices for boomboxes as well, and both boomboxes have a better sound quality than the Sportster Replay Boombox. You can get the regular boombox, which is $99, but fairly large, or the Soloist, which retails for $119, but is fairly small and uses high quality flat panel speakers.

If you had trouble with Amazon, I would recommend using who helps keep SBS running. They have a nearly perfect rating over at, good prices on all their products, and the service there is second to none.

Well, looking at what everything does I'm gonna try and grab a Starmate 4, as BenDee said, it does everything the others do but in a sleeker package.

That is if my mom (it was a christmas gift from her) will pick it up at the local Best Buy for me (need it soon, as I'm moving before the 1st, can't mail order it).
