Value For Money : Excellent
I use it for only 3 days but I must say I am more than satisfied with my purchase. I was expecting a review before I bought it but could not wait ...
My opinion is very limited in the sense that I use it as a simple controller with Ableton Live and not with a DJ software as it was intended.

I took it to the number of tests it offers, namely:
-20 + 1 potentiometers endless
-4 Faders
-1 Crossfader
-15 Buttons (on / off)
All are assignable in Live. It is recognized without any driver to load on.
It will still activate in pref.

The case is plastic and the front is covered with a metal plate: it is light but it seems really solid.
All buttons are very good qualities. I think he'll take a long time, not like my Korg nanoKONTROL.
The touch is nice, the knobs are hard and covered with a super soft rubber! The knob has endless against a super fine adjustment: not to use a control from 0 to 127 as it should do 100 laps!
Faders and crossfader are like a good mixer. The cross offers less resistance, perfect for scratching.
The buttons are a bit hard but it is not annoying. on the other hand they are always lit in orange and the coup was not a reference to know if they are activated or not :-(
I saw on the videos they could turn blue but it can only be with the DJ software, at least I have not found how to live (the same time I have not read manual)
The Hub is a great idea and works really well for what we want to, so I no longer use that I put on my laptop.

Quality Level, Behringer has really improved. I think I have more confidence in their future purchases.
I put only eight, because I have not tested in time DJ and buttons, it's still annoying not knowing if an effect is activated.
This is a good quality / price ratio, I would do this choice without hesitation.
