    Default buying vci 100 se

    hey guys

    im currently flirting with the idea of selling some old gear and getting a vci 100, preferably the DJTT se edition. now, do i have to buy an se, or will a regular vci 100 with the firmware upgrade and overlay be 'the same'?

    also, if you see a black vci anywhere, can you presume its a se with the new firmware etc of are tthere black, non se versions!? this one, for example http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/VESTAX-VCI-100-LE-USB-DJ-CONTROLLER-BLACK_W0QQitemZ160332296654QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_D efaultDomain_3?hash=item25548cb1ce&_trksid=p3286.c 0.m14&_trkparms=72%3A1688|66%3A2|65%3A12|39%3A1|24 0%3A1318|301%3A1|293%3A1|294%3A50

    cheers

    If you get a regular *black* one and put the firmware update and overlay on, you should have the same (the silver one has different knobs/caps). If you see a black one somewhere else, it's most likely *not* the one with new FW1.3. Also the one HTFR sells there is very very likely a standard black one with FW1.2. You can tell them apart also by the missing DJTT logo and the golden print for the extended functions on the faceplate.

    These black VCI-100's that you see elsewhere 9 times out of 10 have orange and green leds and not blue and white leds.

    Got my black VCI-100 from HTFR, 99% sure its FW 1.2. Ordered an SE overlay, thinking about getting the FW upgrade kit in the future too. Way cheaper than buying a SE straight out.

    Does it have blue and white LED's or white and blue leds ?

    The ones with the white and blue LED's have the better feeling buttons and the units just look alot nicer

    Not entirely sure what you mean

    White and blue? or Blue and white? They're the same colours

    My buttons are white when off, some go green and some go blue when turned on. I have the usual red power and other small LED's as well.

    just had this problem solved with phil from the shop via email:

    * white/blue
    the first 100 VCI-100SE controllers

    * blue/green
    the current SE controllers

    *orange/green
    the silver models colors.

    So if you have the normal silver one, upgrade to FM 1.3 and have the Black Overlay.....you then have a VCI-100SE without the Blue and White LED's.

    Correct?
