    if you could find the CDJ-400 i would go with those. I personally used the 800s with timecode and they worked great, just the cue points would drive me nuts. CDJ-400 all the way.

    I think you can probably still get parts for 400s, and those would be my suggestion as well since they have native HID support with SSL.

    I picked up a single CDJ-850 the other day (found a great price), and the native support is soooo much nicer than using timecode.

    There's no problem to get CDJ400 parts from any decent supplier.

    I have 400's and they work PERFECT in HID mode. I'd get those over the other ones because you have three free buttons you can map on them. Second choice would be the 350's because you can use rekorderbox with them and SSL now supports them in HID mode.

    400s here as well. Got refurbed for a steal and actually don't even think they were used by anyone before Pioneer realized there was an issue. Not a stinking fingerprint on them when I got them. Love them to death and haven't had an issue ever. Might even buy 2 more!

    The 800s are the closest decks on your list to not sucking. The rest of them are not worth buying, and anyone who says differently has never played on real CDJs.
