ummm, yeah the 1650's............
They aren't as bad as everyone says. Having said that, they aren't the best deck on earth. I've had them for a year (they were 2nd hand so I don't know how old they actually are), one TT's motor is getting really worn out and the pitch is wobbling a fair bit (the other is still okay though). Its not so flash to listen to, you don't really notice it when you are mixing though.
When I first got them, they weren't that bad, they are great to learn on basically cos they ARE inaccurate (and new they wouldn't be as bad as mine are), so you do get pretty good at pitch bending mid mix, and the pitch fader is loose so its great to learn how to ride the pitch rather than push-pull.
They do feel plasticky, there is feedback through the base, and the weight of my Concordes is right on the limit of the weight the tonearm can take.
I'd recommend them if:
A) You are poor
B) You aren't sure if djing is your thing
C) You're a sucker for punishment
D) You don't take your djing seriously (if its a hobby)
Either way, they are pretty good to start out on, but you WILL want to get new ones after about a year.
Look, for a cheap deck they are better than I was expecting. People were sort of saying "you won't be able to mix, they are crap, forget them, just get Techs". Thats a load of crap, I stand by the fact they are a good beginner's table.
Possible other options include the Stanton STR8-80, I was torn between these two, I haven't used the Stanton so I don't know if they are better/worse.
