Gets the Job Done

Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
The metal casing version give a good quality feel to it and ruggedness. Plus the carrying case that comes with it is a super plus. I keep the foam cover over the top of the mixer while in the carrying so not to damage teh knobs and sliders.
What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could?
Nice features, really basic, but gets the job done. Virtual DJ (LE) comes with it. NOt a ton of features but enough FX to have people think you are a professional mix master (or at least know what you're doing). I do feel they could at least give you a full version of VDJ.
Ease of Use
How easy is this product to use? How easy is the product to use with other products? Did it take long for you to learn to use this product? Was the manual helpful? How playable do you consider this product to be?
I called Place the order on thursday and was at my door Monday. Slapped in Software Disc. Loaded drivers and software. Was practiacing in 10 min. Quite easy.. i say. Real simple display. Iti doesnt have 500 buttons and knobs just to stop the song. Layout on the mixer real simple and understanding.
How is the tone?
The tone through the headphones is great. The 3 way EQ on the mixer gives a little help & boost for sound quality, but overall sound will depend on your track, Amplifier and speakers. So 4 out of 5 stars on sound. Since it CAN'T do it all by it's self.
Your general opinion of this product.
Overall.. i like it ;) ..coming out of retirement 20 years for friends & family (only)..it was really cumbersome at first getting used to little jog wheels instead of a full vynl record. But with 4-5 hours of practice i got used to it. And it reminded me why i got out of the DJ world. Hauling heavy bulky equipment. But this little thing & a laptop plus external hard drive, all can fit one bag is awesome. Yes it's not as flashy as some of the others i tested and played with in the stores. But, it still does the same thing. Plays & controlls the MP3s. I havent found one where you can play 3 & 4 songs at a time, so therefore this will do just fine. Especially for the $$.
Was this item an overall good value?
Good Vaule? Yes. Price point is pretty good (i could have stood to get a 25% discount, because i pinch pennis) But, it's worth the buy.
