Advantages The durability and quality of build.
Disadvantages The centre click of the pitch control.
I've owned my 1210s for nearly 8 years. They were and still are the industry standard for many professional DJs. I used to DJ in clubs and only mixed on these. If you want to take your DJ'ing seriously then you can't go wrong in purchasing these.The sturdy build allows them to be knocked around a little to and from gigs, the parts are easily removed and replaceable (should you ever need to) and the quality of the mechanism is second to none.
The only flaw in them is the centre of the pitch control. If you are beat matching a record which falls in the middle of the pitch, then you may have a harder time finding the perfect BPM due to the centre click. The solution is simple, alter the speed of the other deck slightly.I use my 1210s for beat matching, scratching and just playing records.
Look at the prices second hand for these, they hardly lose value. This is how good they are! If you want reverse pitch, pitch bend, digital displays etc then you should look else where, but most of those are gimmics and aren't really needed.
