My first DJ controller unit and its great for learning. Not too many buttons to confuse you as theres only the buttons you need to learn. I can imagine after using these quite a bit and getting use to DJing you will need to upgrade To a more advanced DJ controller to do more things but these are perfect for learners.
My very first DJ controller and I'm loving it. Easy to use, includes tutorials and full Rekordbox software. Case on it's own is £50, so you are getting this little beast for less than £200... It will last you until you are ready for DDJ 800 for sure and Pioneers keep their resale value well.
Had these for few weeks now and can honestly say it has such a good feel. Litterly all you need to get on your way to hitting the pro gear. Only one had one gripe. Sometimes when inturn the effects off they remained on. Not sure if this was the controller itself or the software I was using on my iPad.
