Head unit replacement

As we all know the head unit in the slk is a perfect match aesthetically. However in a quest to find a radio that looks great and is electrically up to date is a hard task. I have looked at slide out units, single din units and just about everything available.
what I would like is something under stated yet up to date in terms of electronics.
I have looked at the Pioneer DEX-PR99RS very expensive.
I have looked at the Axxera AV7225bh slide out unit.
I have looked at the Power Acoustik PTID-3600.
Any comments on these? or just stay with the stock unit?

I have been looking to replace the stock head unit as well. I have been mostly searching for pull out displays, came across this one that seems to have all the typical modern features Soundstream VIR-7830B Bluetooth 2.0 Enabled Single-DIN In-Dash DVD, MP3, MP4, DivX Receiver with 7" Flip-Up TFT LCD Touchscreen and* Front USB, AUX, SD Card Inputs at Onlinecarstereo.com. I think I might be giving it a shot for the price.
