Advantages: Keep time brilliantly, easy to handle/carry, dual start/stop for battle style
Disadvantages: Plastic components not as strong or preferable as metal.
Now this was the first turntable I ever purchased new, as a bedroom dj with the odd spin in a local pub or club. They were bought as a deal, and even then represented remarkable value for money.
Whether you want a single deck for home listening, two for practice, or something inexpensive to take out to smaller gigs - these are great. I used them continuously for weekly pub gigs etc and they treated me incredibly well.
Though it's plastic components certainly aren't top of the range, it's really the mechanics that count. Even stalwart Technics users have said how remarkably well these decks keep time, and anyone beatmixing knows how crucial that is.
What's more, the double start/stop buttons that allow you to set the decks up battle style allows for use in smaller spaces (such as bedrooms or small booths), and allow for ease of movement and dexterity for scratch dj's.
While I wouldn't buy the same again as I'm more professional now - I have kept with Numark because the insides count, and they're pretty nice lookin too
Summary: My dj career started with these babies
