Amazing Turn Tables
Pros: Now I know that some people may not love this thing and it's software but they need to be aware that the turntables are made to be portable and the software made more for live shows rather than messing around and recording... But do not fear as many other programs let you use these as just another piece of equipment... I personally enjoy having this as it wasn't expensive or cheap...
Cons: Live mixing software... And that is about it!
Other Thoughts: They could do a better job updating their software as the drivers that come with it seem a tad bit out dated

Great For The Newbie DJ
Pros: Jog wheels feel good and tactile. Construction durable and solid. Basic Dj Functionality is solid, good for teaching the basics. My kids bought me this last Christmas because they know I am a Dj, and this was the only unit in their price range that they could afford. Mind you I have Technics 1200's Turntables, with Beringer MX1000 Mixer, and the NuMark Total Control, but they thought I'd like this unit. Well I do. The scratch function is tighter than my NuMark (because of the large controll wheels). Pitch Bending is a little tricky, but there are buttons for that. Comes with solid mixVibes Software. The unit was easy to install on my laptop using Windows 7 64 bit.
Cons: To "cue" a song for mix you will need an External Dj professional sound card. I use the Traktor Audio 2. It was difficult to configure with the version to MixVibes that comes with the unit, so I advise you to upgrade asap. I eventually just used Virtual Dj 7. Why does this come with headphone, since they are useless unless you have an external soundcard?
Other Thoughts: This unit is really for kids (young teens who want to learn to Dj), which is why my kids got me this thing, since they use it more than I.
