I've been using them for four years with a Numark DXM 06 mixer.
Easy-to-use and practical decks.

My opinion after four years of use:

Pros:

- User friendly
- CDs are quickly loaded
- CD tray illumination
- Reliable in spite of heavy vibrations and damaged CDs - CUE play function (a very rare feature)
- Very good effects
- Loop functions (stutter or on the fly), two storable loops
- Pitch and KEY
- 3000 storable cue points
- Value for money
- Possibility to sync decks

Cons:

- SOUND: not enough output gain (compared with other DJ decks)
- Easily audible noise
- CD load via tray (archaic and bulky)
- Manual too short (it doesn't mention tips to solve different problems)
- Lack of digital output (although it's not very useful)
- No CD-RW or MP3 CDs support
- Not compatible with CDs over 80 minutes!!!
- Bulky compared with Denon products or a Pioneer CDJ-400

Note: don't expect too much considering the current AXIS9 price...

Problems:

Processor overheat on a deck Signs: display malfunction, faulty playing and smell
In short, the desk was unusable (very annoying when you have to start your performance two minutes later)!
It worked again two days later and it never happened again...

The jog wheel is no longer touch-sensitive on both decks, which means no scratch function nor effects anymore.

Conclusion:
Good value for money, easy handling (even for beginners).
I don't regret my choice at all.
I would choose a deck with a USB input now,
like the Pioneer CDJ 400.
