First off this unit is so fun to use. However, after a days use the master output was starting to have connection issues with headphones. Was able to jiggle and make it go away. But it just got worse. Thought is was the headphones, but tried multiple headphones with the same issue. Then tried the headphone jack and that's also having the same problems. Now just less than a week and the unit has become useless. :(. Have emailed Long and McQuade about trying to exchange - was ordered and delivered with none available locally.

This product by Hercules comes with Serato DJ Lite software. Serato Tech Support is the worst I have ever encountered. They don't seem to care about their clients at all. I wrote to them twice with a question and each time their technical support workers didn't even reply. I got an automated message both times saying they received my help request and that one of their team would respond but both times nobody ever got in touch with me. The quality of the controller by Hercules seems top-notch but, since it is designed to work with Serato software, you're better off buying a different controller that uses different software - because the Serato company won't help you much if you need it.

This thing is pretty cool for portability to stash away in a backpack with your laptop and setup to mess around with ideas almost anywhere. Wouldn't recommend this to actually dj on, but for mobile creativity purposes you can't really get much better. You can even scratch pretty well on it considering what it is. Jogs are accurate and the fader is decent enough. For $100 you can't really go wrong here.
