The Pros:Jog wheels and other controls are responsive and have a good feel. Lightweight and portable, good for bringing to parties/small shows. Good all-around beginner kit for the price.
The Cons:Requires a sound card (may have to be purchased additionally) and this may increase the overall price. Faders can get wobbly with use, may need to be replaced. Scratches sound somewhat computerized.
