Like all Technics, it is very reliable and solidly built, on the condition that you use it for what it was conceived, which excludes DJing, of course.
It's my first turntable and I'm very happy with it.
Granted, it's low-end from a low-end brand, but it sounds fine and the mechanism is solid, which is crucial. The value for money is very good.
I would buy it again today without hesitation, especially given its secondhand price!
