I've been using it for two months.

- I like:

* the most: accuracy of the sensitive joggle / the quality in ASIO mode

* the least: pitch fader (too soft and without 0% tap).

- Gear I tested before:

* Hercules DJ-console, first generation: a toy! Not accurate, plastic knobs, high latency, 2 breakdowns in 2 years, too small, etc. Only advantage: very comprehensive connections, perfect for multimedia applications.

* Pioneer CDJ-200: Looks great but it's not sensitive. The vinyl feel is better with higher and more expensive models: cdj-800 and cdj-1000

* Denon dpdj-151 turntable: good turntable...

* Vestax pdx-d3 turntable: a jewel...

- Value for money

I bought them new and got a very nice price.

- Based on my experience, I would buy them again. I had been looking for something like this ever since the first Dj-Console came out and disappointed me... I use them with a SMAC PRO 40. It's a great setup to get an authentic mixing feel.
