Interesting take, the serato offer atm is ace for just laptop use, but having used decks, laptop and controller, I'd def recommend dropping £50 on a tactile controller....

the laptop method is definitely do-able, the shortcut keys are intuitive, they split nicely for left/right channels, you get loads of functionality, as much as a controller - it's just you're tapping away at a laptop.

Having a controller is (for me I stress!) way more expressive! Like, if you're a few beers in and you want to be banging out the tunes, then a controller gives you that "tap tap tap green button, smash red button" feel.

Get the controller, dl the free serato play, enjoy them both and see if you want to go bigger! I had a £300 vestax vci300 which more than satisfied when moving from decks to a tiny flat. If you're really creative, then you might spend more in the future. I don't need more.

Tldr - Top deal, recommend!

Looks like good fun

Amazon price matched
Same price on Amazon now
Just don’t mess about. Get the pioneer ddj-400. Awesome piece of kit. After that the ddj-1000. 400 a lot more money but so so much better. And totally worth it.

Love my DDJ-1000! The 400 is a cracking bit of kit for the price and Rekordbox DJ is now as close to Traktor/Serato as it's ever been

Yep. Started with a 400 and am now in love with my 1000 like proper full on man crush lol pioneer make by far the best DJ controllers and the step up from the 1000 to the nexus 2’s is minimal. I learnt the hard way buy Hercules / numark garbage. Just save money and time by going straight to the ddj-400
That's exactly why I got a 1000. I wanted CDJ-900 Nexus, but couldn't justify the cost difference
The Denon kit looks cool as well though...
Excellent bit of kit40843577-UiiEp.jpg

If you're serious about djing, then sure there are a myriad of different controllers you can checkout, however, the 400 is a large piece of kit and costs iro £250.

Ultimately, this is 50quid, has some pretty decent features for some house party action, comes with class leading brilliantly supported software and can be stuffed in hand luggage!

You can buy this, get serato, and some hd25s for half the price of a 400
