I use them for 10 years in public and private parties party (now in backup plates), still fly.
I especially like the auto cue, the quality of calibration cd, the wheel can pass cdr (it accepts virtually all cdr!), Robustness (they are 10 years old).
The least that they take a little space compared to last generations, no effects, no cdrw or USB key, but can make precise loop.
Yes many other models at the time such TSB, Denon ...
Level money, at the time a little expensive but now it OCCAZ the top for someone who starts.
Now there are other products from Pioneer or Denon but for troubleshooting problem is not a good investment.
