|I've seen and tried the DJM-900, and I know that its what all the Pro's use. But Berhinger has gone over and above with this mixer. It will give you all the features of the latest Pioneer mixers, dare I say even better with its amazing sampling ability, and effect editors! I don't know why people bother paying over $1000.00 for the new Pioneer mixers when they can get basically the same thing for $500.00!
I recommend this for anyone, honestly anyone. It withstands rigorous club use and use on the road! Don't think that this mixer will confine you to being a basic bedroom DJ, because it is perfectly capable of being use in front of large crowds, while keeping its reliability. How can I be sure? I watched it being used all around Ibiza by world famous DJ's infront of crowds of 10,000 people, but most of those DJ's have moved to Pioneer simply because when DJM 800-900 came out a few years later, everyone always says, "newer is apparently better". A few gold plated ports instead of silver, a "nice shiny surface". Berhinger hasn't bothered to keep up making multiple versions and upgrades to their DJ tabletop mixers, and because Pioneer has done just that, they have become "industry standard". Because they achieved that title, they can increase the prices of their mixers immensely, because everyone now think that "oh pioneer is just the best, quality and everything". That's crap! There are way too many haters saying bad stuff about Behringer just because it isn't as popular as Pioneer. They may have only released ONE GOOD mixer of this type, because they have had failures with previous DJ mixers, but its GREAT!
Ex. You see a nice polyester shirt for $10, you then proceed to see exact the same shirt with a Hollister logo for $60..... its still a nice shirt. Who cares if it doesn't have the logo on it. Get my Drift?
Cons? Maybe a better placed headphone jack, but I couldn't care less! I just run it straight to the side of the mixer and down the edge. Also since it is a few years old, it doesn't have the newer usb 2 midi port on the back, to connect to your computer, but there are cables that can solve that.
This review is probably way too long, but I hope that all who read this can understand my view on this, and the Pioneer mixers aren't necessary unless your Arty, or Tiesto, DJ Shiftee or Craze, and can buy whatever the hell you want.|

|Purchased the DDM4000 about 2 years ago and so far its been great. Yes, I am sure there are stories to stay away from Behringer but you know what there is not a single bad thing i have to say about this mixer for this price. You have a full range of effects that sound pretty darn good! Filters are are nice crisp but obviously not as great as the Pioneer line up. Although better then anything Digital aka Serato, Traktor ect. Overall sound is amazing no complains. Layout of all the buttons works out very well, everything is where it should be. The headphone jack could have been in a better location but no stress. Ive abused the crap out of it and so far one Up fader knob came lose which superglue did a fine job in fixing. The EQ knobs are still good with tention. If this is your first mixer GO OUT AND BUY IT! You will be very satisfied :)|
