    Default Nooooooooooo! Don't Buy That!!

    I had a friend who wanted to get into digital DJing ask me what to buy. I gave my advice.

    then they went and got something completely different without consult.

    The product and company shal remain nameless....but now's a great moment to pop this in.

    -------
    Have you ever had those "nooo don't buy that!" moments with your friends?

    Yup, It happend last week when my friend was asking me about sound cards, I told him to look into geting a either an M-Audio or Gigaport for the money that he had avail. He comes back with a DJ I/O? I was like really man, for 20 - 30 bux more you could have got a better card.

    Oh I won't get into it. As I like to try to at least come across as unbiased.

    But at any rate, I told them to pick up the VCI-100, and they ended up with a cheeep knockoff.

    They said "the vci-100 was too expensive" and my only response was "well..you could have waited the 4 days until you were in town, and we could have gone together and found something within your price range!"

    of course i also spent like 10 minutes going "NOOOO! take it baaaack!"

    It's probably the Numark Total control.

    I have this happen a lot with my friends.

    Hell, one guys said "I'm going to buy this mixing board" And I said, "Why?"

    He couldn't give me a reason, but wanted it, so he bought it, and never used it. I told him he'd have been better off giving me the money and I'd have bought myself something nice


    It's like we don't really know anything.
    It's the FAQ. Read it.

    My guess is a Behringer. hahaha

    You get what you pay for. They will regret it and end up spending twice as much finally getting the unit they should have bought in the first place.

    Then comes the time when you DONT say "i told you so" because you are a good friend and wouldnt be so petty

    Cause they wanted to know if you wouldn't pick the most expensive option.

    Even if it is the best.
