I like them. They don't have the grab that my belt drive ones have, but they work alot better in other ways than the belt drive ones do. But then, I use all four (hardly ever at the same time) because they can both do things differently. If you want to play out quick changing tones with pitch shifting, I wouldn't say these would be the first choice for me. They tend to miss the fact that you moved the pitch fader every now and then, but they are pretty reliable for everything else.
At no point in time was this product even close to being a professional turntable worth my money.
I have two xl-500II tables, and they've got a huge wobble! Granted, i got them from ebay, but they don't seem very durable. The direct drove motor is very weak (slow startups compared to "pro" turntables), and the base is poorly constructed, so it picks up hum really well. All in all, good starter tables, but if you're looking to go far go to the next step up (and away from Gemini).
