In my opinion the DDJ-1000 is by far the best DJ Controller on the market. This unit unlocks the full version of Rekorbox 6.0 - subscription NOT required. The controller is mostly plastic and at first feels a little cheap and not a fan of the external AC adapter, however the full size CDJ mechanical jog wheels make this controller totally worth it. It's a great value especially when compared to 2-CDJs & 900 Nexus Mixer. Controller has too many features to name i.e. dedicated sampler volume control knob, multiple post fader effects, two USBs ports which allow you to hookup and use 2 laptops simultaneously, etc.
