Purchased two of these units for use in DJing wedding ceremonies and receptions. Was looking for durable, utterly dependable players and these seem to be very good quality. Have been using them for about a month. Two drawbacks as compared to other players are the unintuitive track selection knobs (instead of buttons), which are very sensitive, and no option to display total elapsed or total remaining time on a cd.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
