Pros: Pretty much everything. The 1:1 integration, multiple platform (I run both Mac and PC - Snow Leopard MacBook Pro and Windows 7 PCs), great response, great feel - the real vinyl makes everything feel even more legit.
It's hard for me to break down all the positives because there are just too many to list. I love everything about this controller. I had reached a point in my DJing where I had to upgrade my software and equipment to keep growing as a DJ and to learn new skills. Rather than go with the iPod-based cheapo units or purchase several separate components, I decided to save a few more months and go for the big time - boy am I happy I did. This cut out half of my equipment and it's just beautiful. On my maiden voyage out, people swarmed just to look at the thing - before I even started spinning!
Cons: It's heavy... and the lights are red (I'd prefer blue) What am I supposed to say? This thing is just incredible.
The only other thing that might add to this controller, from a technological standpoint would be some USB extension ports. I run a MacBook Pro at my gigs and it has two USB ports. 1 port = NS7 1 port = External HD, and I'm left with no where to plug in the FX controller. Just ordered a powered USB hub to deal with that - but it'd be nice with everything this controller offers to have another expansion - or even a FireWire out, since it relies so heavily on 1:1 integration with the computer.
Also, the Serato Itch software has a couple minor drawbacks, the major one being that it doesn't play the high-quality whitelabel.net tracks. Not a biggie, but it'd be nice since Serato and WhiteLabel are partners and everything :/ doesn't really make sense to me because ScratchLive handles the files perfectly.
Other Thoughts: I purchased the NS7FX (additional with the FX bar) and it's just awesome. As mentioned above, I wish the FX bar was not USB powered and instead powered off the NS7 controller, but it's a small gripe.
Basically, if you are a DJ who wants the feel of real vinyl and turntables but doesn't want to invest in a lot of equipment, this is the way to go hands-down. Just amazing - probably the best product Numark has ever put out.
