It is nice to have all the functionality of the DICE, but sound quality was my main concern. I had a DICE for about 2 years, and the sound (dit-dit-dit and the constant engine noise) drove me nuts. I was able to reduce the noise by quite a bit, but no matter what it was always there. Then the battery resets were also a pain to have to do periodically. It is a shame they didn't spend too much time engineering the hardware to eliminate those problems, it would have been a great device. But, ultimately it is a sound device, so if it can't do that right, then it isn't doing its job.

I had to finally sell the DICE and get the USA-SPEC and am happy I did, the sound quality is excellent. For me, I normally listen to all my music in random mode, so losing all the other navigation options really didn't bother me.
