JimboSpins's review"cheaper than the 900 but same abilities "

Pioneer CDJ-850
The CDJ 850 is one of the best and most affordable solutions to having a CDJ set up. It is made by Pioneer and for years they have been making these CDJ units and they are very well built and constructed. The CDJ 850 is one of the cheaper ones when it comes to price, not cheap in quality. For less than a 1 grand, the CDJ 850 almost has the same features as the 900 models except the 900 models cost a lot more.

The CDJ 850 has top of the line mixing features and an unprecedented sound quality. You can pull all of your files and music from CD’s USB drives or external hard drives, and it plays WAV, AAC, AIFF and almost any other type of audio file that is used. Keep your computer at home with the CDJ 850 like you do with the 950 because all of your stuff can just be on USB drives. So what is really the difference between the 850 and the 900 besides the price. Well for starters I think the 900 has a better build to it, and a more stylish design. In my opinion that is the main thing that is the difference with the two. The CDJ 850 seems to be more for a DJ that is a beginner or with a smaller budget to work with and needs a CDJ device.

The CDJ 850 comes with a DJ management software called Rekordbox, its not the best software for DJ management but its pretty darn good for it to be free with the CDJ 850.
The face of the CDJ 850 is made so that the DJ has the quickest control and access to the music files. And with the WAV running across the screen you will have the proper visuals you need to be able to mix properly as well as have the artist name, and BPM of the song right there in front of you. The CDJ 850 is a low priced machine with everything a DJ needs. It would be my first unit if I was just starting out.

Pioneer CDJ-850
2 years of use, after the royal cdj 400 is for display, jog accuracy, ergonomics, and I use it with hard drives in rekordbox. I do not have that choice since I saw the nexus 900 for display and the link.

jules82's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" effective!"

Pioneer CDJ-850
I use them for a little over two years
Before I had the cdj 800 cdj I tested the 900 and 1000.
Plus, it has everything a large, easy to take a hand, reliable, no gimmicks.
value for money is correct, it remains pioneer.
It was for me the mixer.
Least, it does not turn into cdj 2000!
Loops was not very perfect before the update.
The official mapping for traktor is moldy.
With experience, Pioneer remains a reference for cd players,
I do not regret my purchase!

Pioneer CDJ-850
-How long have you use it?

Since more than a month.

-Have you tried many other models before buying it?

yes ndx 400 cdj 1000 mk3 cdj 2000 cdj 2000 cdj 900 nexus nexus.

-What is the particular feature you like best and least?

Most: the buttons are well spaced with good size that leaves room for some functions, there is no risk of pressing the wrong button. It is easy to use, cars-loops are perfect, there is a proper screen and resembles screens cdj 900 cdj 2000 to 2000 nexus. Jog is 206 mm, the same size as the cdj professional range.

Cons: it not lack a lot of things for a product at this price. What is unfortunate is that the songs are a bit long to load. As I mix with rekordbook, you can not have the pitch by + / - 100% on the other hand can have it in cd.

-How would you rate the quality / price?

a mid-range Pioneer with a fair price, given the level of the deck. I think the price is affordable.

-With experience, you do again this choice?

Yes, because it is a product that provides opportunities to mix at a good level.

BongoBeat's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" No surprise, the good, the pioneer"

Pioneer CDJ-850
I for 1 year.
Before I used CDJ200, 850 are therefore multi player set preparation more efficient thanks to rekordbox. Tag useful function. Loops good even if perfection does not exist.
Goodies: Jog precise, accurate vinyl mode, wide choice of auto loop function tag useful, good navigation in playlists.
Cons: unreadable screen outside if sunny, missing RJ45 plug for sync.
Value for money interesting even though we know that Pioneer is the market leader.
I remake that choice but I'll take the CDJ900 can be for one or two additional functions.

JeanMi75's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" EXCELLENT"

Pioneer CDJ-850
Acquired a year ago, I use one about once a week.
I had CDJ 100S, CDJ 200, and 400.
We find good features "Pioneer" common to other plates that mark.
It's a bit expensive, but I do it again this NIOHC no problem, because they seem indestructible!
I also mixed on the 900 and 2000, and frankly, the difference in use does not justify the price difference.
I also recommend for those who have less budget, CDJ 350 which are extras.

thomas.ls's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Good product"

Pioneer CDJ-850
Platinum affordable value with the same base report that the CDJ 900 or 2000 without rj45 for link. But for the price, we are not disappointed. Very satisfied with my purchase. My silver plates are coupled with an Allen & Heath console area 62, which gives a very tablet without breaking the bank!
