    look for a dj that you would trust and know that is from your area. that way you know they wouldnt fuck you over. or yu could simply ask your friend where he got his.

    I have dealt with several types, and ended up getting 1200's First I got one used for like 250 with some records, really beat up, but it worked. It took me about 2-3 years later, but I found another one for 150, europian model but worked. It may have took awhile but I finally got one. Look one ebay, and in the want ad press. I am sure there are other places you can look on the internet too, but its not impossible to find them cheap. Dont be afraid to buy them one by one, I think thats why I got them cheap, cause most people sell them in pairs. 1200 are amazing, the first one was 3rd generation (i bought it used from someone else who bought it used) and it still works like a charm, only the light dont work. I almost never hear of someone having problems with one, so I would not worry bout getting a used one. I would not recomend anything else.

    If you are gonna get tables...do it right. if you buy generic and you really get serious about it, you're going to want quality tables anyway... so save yourself the money and the time. and go for the kill. if you decide you don't want to do it anymore you could always sell them to people like yourself. they hold their worth pretty good. nawmean.

    a table is a table, most of them are all the same. some just have more gadgets than others. numarks dont suck at all, i rock numarks and i've rocked alot of things and trust me, they dont suck. if you have $800 then you have enough for a descent set, you'll probably end up wanting to get new needles wich can run anywhere from $20-$200 and then your gonna want everything else that goes with it, so my suggestion is go to a dj store or guitar center and try out some tables and get the feel for the one that fits you, the only thing that there is a difference in, meaning one is better than the other, is the mixer.

    i'll be back with some flixs and table styles that you might like! and it depends what you want to do, are you mixing house, rap, hip-hop etc.?
