I never, ever, anticipated buying a all-in-one Prodigy FX DJ Workstation as a blind date; however, I actually put my hands on one and was Cuttin' n' Scratchin' on this unit with the aid of built in special effects. It was a must buy for the Price. It's space effecient and lightweight. I've used it for about two months as a mobile dj and I'm finding this piece of art a user-friendly-plug'n'play Device. It's 100% Compatible w/dj Software (Serato) and the effects are awesome for speed mixing and battle scratching. But if you specialize in weddings like I do, then this Unit is more than what you expect as a dj. It has a creative mind of it's own that makes you look good as a DJ.

I was excited to purchase this item due to it's compactness and features; relatively lightweight too. After using in for 2 months, the left cd deck would not eject the cd. I took it to AAA Electronics to get it fixed where it took them 4 months to get it back to me after some very lenghty phone calls, attitudes from the sales team there, and ignored calls. After getting back, I was only able to use it for 6 more months as the left cd deck does not read cds anymore. Furthermore, the plug in the back sits in its housing so loosely that it can fall out during a gig and the powers goes off. AKA dead air. Furthermore, the effects do not work with Serato. Maybe there has been a fix with this lately, but I am not aware of it. This item was a severe waste of money for me. Buyer Beware!

Worst Equipment Ever.

By David Garcia

from Austin

Broke on me within 3 months. Cd would not eject cd properly. Afterwords the left cd would not even play or show correct bpm or anything. Sometimes it would get stuck and not even eject.

Great Upgrade!

By orly biton

from Valley Village, CA

I am really enjoying this product. I purchased it a while ago and it was having some minor issues with the cd drive, I contacted B-52 and they assured me that it was being fixed. I was then sent the Upgraded version which I have to say is THE best workstation I have ever used. I have been DJing at events for 5 years and I would trust the Prodigy FX with my biggest events. Awesome product, highly recommended!

Not even good as a toy

By Jesus Villegas

from Lakewood, WA

I have been a professional DJ for over 7 years and have used many different types of systems. I was recently looking for something to use to show some kids how to DJ. I found a brand new Prodigy on sale at guitarcenter. They were not selling and were being return all the time so they marked it way down. I had heard about all the problems but figured for the price, if at least the cd players worled I could have the kids at least fade from songs to song. The first time I turned it on I started having problems with it. I can tell it was very cheaply made and it's not even good if I got it free. I agree with all DJ's that this is a horrible product.

Not Worth The Money

By Gregory E. Love

from Atlanta, Georgia 30349

The prodigy fx is loaded with a lot of features, but this mixer is not for mobile or professional dj's. B52 Prodigy mixers are not reliable. On my Prodigy FX the left cd reader would display "error" and not play a cd that had just been slid into the cd player. I would eject the same cd and reinsert it and it would then read that same cd and play it. The connection for the power cord developed a short and the unit would cut off at any time. The left cd player jammed with a cd in it and I could not get it to eject the cd. After returning to the Guitar Center where I had purchased it, I was given another brand new Prodigy FX. The new unit developed the very same problems as the previous one I had purchased. The unit looks professional and is loaded with many desirable features but I would recommend this unit for use only at home. Repeat: Only At Home! This unit is prone to go down at any time. As a result, I would not recommend anyone to buy this mixer. I not only bought a B52 Prodigy FX, I also bought a B52 Prodigy (the cheaper version of the Prodigy FX). Both units had the same problems; cd readers that wouldn't read, cds getting stuck in the cd players, etc. Buyers Beware!

B52 Prodigy - FAILS expectations

By SANDRA D

from Georgia

I've had nonstop problems with the left side of the component reading CDs that are perfectly fine. After surfing the web, it appears this is a CONSISTENT problem for everyone and that there is no fix to truly resolve the issue. it sucks because it is beyond the warranty period. The concept was great, but concepts don't keep bills paid - obviously from this thing. Sandra

Worst Product A Beginning DJ Can Buy!

By DJ Shari Robinson

from Baton Rouge, La

I purchased this workstation and thought that this would be good for me to learn on as new DJ. Wrong! Besides it always "Reading", one of the CD players just say error. It happened at a gig. Thank God for Ipods! B52 doesnt support or stand by this product. Customer service is deplorable. Spend the extra 400 and grab Pioneer, Numark, even Denon before settling. Disappointment all around.

Buyer Beware

By Roderick Wilkerson

from Atlanta GA

Do not buy this item. I am not a heavy use DJ, and the left CD J has broken three times, once under warranty and then again after being fixed, now the left CD-J is out again so this will be another 230 repair. Do not buy this item, you will be sorry. The customer service is horrible as well.

DON'T BELIEVE THE HYPE

By Keith

from Atlanta, GA

This unit looks high tech but it's really a piece of junk. I've had my unit since April 2008 and its had to be repaired twice for the same problem. My right side cd deck was unable to read discs and both times i was assured the problem had been corrected with brand new parts. Needless to say after 8 weeks my unit was returned to me. I agree with the other reviews...if you are considering purchasing this unit please think twice because its not worth the money.
