Value For Money : Excellent
I bought this turntable to scratch me. I paid less than 300 euros (comes with a felt Stanton (effectively, fairly thick), a cell is a cell Stanton "special scratch" Series 500.

I tried a couple Technics / Ortofon: Obviously this is not comparable level recovery disk, but for the price of stanton, nothing to say. It is perfect for running loops or just to mix. To scratch, the belt drive is a fair bit level recovery and the set switches a bit, but it does it very well anyway.

FYI, do not be fooled by the argument merketing "direct drive". Some decks with a belt drive torque will equal if not superior to poor direct drive turntable. So be careful.

To sum up: very good plate for mixing. Good for scratching turntable. First, I found no better value.
