    The lack of Mk1 bugs means that any type of complaint about the Nexus is automatically a bug? You are taking any negative point about the Nexus and using it to imply they are somehow inadequate compared to existing CDJs, but they are in fact perfectly capable when it comes to basic mixing. If some little gimmicky feature doesn't work, it's not going to have any impact on a live gig.

    Many of the moderator responses are either generic knowledge-base answers, or information relayed to and from the engineers. They have little personal experience when it comes to specific problems and bugs.

    I invite you, the Pioneer Forum Expert, to link some recent threads detailing all these disastrous bugs that make the Nexus unusable for mixing live. Based on the timestamps of the posts, there seem to be very few posts at all in the 2000/NXS forum.

    ... it goes further, but I think I made my point.

    There was a thread on this 2000MK1/NXS forum that had a title saying something like "WE NEED SUPPORT FROM PIONEER NOW!" and instead of 3 or 4 likes, like a normal thread would have, it already had more than 35.
    Well, it desapeard. Hehe. Who knows what could have happened right?

    The new firmware may be less buggy (IMO still over-the-limit buggy) than the older ones, but thinking as a smart DJ would, I can easily imagine a situation where there would be random CDJ-2000Nexus in front of me in a club, whose firmware version would be completely unknown. Would you trust the CDJs' sync?

    Considering it takes a few seconds to update the CDJs yourself, there's no reason why anyone really wouldn't. You're dealing with the 80/20 rule with a product launch, with no actual failure/issue statistics overall, and citing a handful of issues on a forum designed as a conduit for product raeg as a barometer for the players at large.

    Remember how many complaints and issues the 2000Mk1's had initially? A fair amount, but they got patched up relatively quickly, and the impotent rage tapered off as adoption rates ramped up. Now the people who don't remember the 2000's initial launch (and don't understand the concept of support empathy) are in full 80/20 raeg swing. It doesn't take more than a handful of like-minded people who need to have an issue with something to create a "trend" against that something, regardless of the actual context of the issues discussed, and regardless of the industry/manufacturer/product in question; it's just a basic consumer behavior concept.

    I remember a time when the 5 out of the top 25 posts on /r/gaming were about DOA PS4s, with about a thousand comments per post discussing how widespread the issue was among the "internet user who just experienced a hardware failure" demographic. Of course, Sony's records showed a verified failure rate of about 1.5%, but no time for sensibility, bring on the upvotes, consumer raeg, and discussion-motivated segments...

    If you are playing on others' kit, the VERY 1st thing to do is check the firmware. Just keep the current or stable firmware on your USB and flash it yourself. I never experienced a single issue with mine, though. Not even once.
