Your Questions: Are DJ Controllers Reliable?

Member Mat writes: “I am new to DJ controllers, but not new to DJing. In the past I have DJed several wedding and school dances, using just a laptop, plugged into a mixer, into speakers. My wife and I have been endlessly researching into controllers, however according to reviews of several controllers, they sound a bit unreliable.”
