Pros:Low Price, Great for starting DJs

Cons:Inconsistant pitch bend, not great in the long run, wears out easily, belt drive

The Bottom Line: Instead of buying this table why don't you save up a little extra money and go for a direct drive table.


When you're out looking for a starting turntable this may catch your eye. The low price of under $100 seems to be a good deal. However, this turntable becomes useless as your skills increase. The first and most notable problem is the tables inconsistant pitch bend. The pitch bend is how you control the beat of the record you are spinning. Since this pitch bend is rather inconsistant it causes a lot of frustration espically while trying to learn. This also makes the table not useful for professional DJing. The table is also belt drive, which means it runs by a belt pulling it back and forth. This makes the table inconsistant in speed. Thus making it hard to match the beat with another record. With all of these problems you'll want to buy another table soon, so this money will be wasted.
