    If you can save up. Go for second hand pair of Technics 1210. Check ebay.

    get them second hand mate. do some research, read reviews and find some decks you like and look in the free ads, ebay and youl be able to get a far better deck that in those cheap packages! maybe numark tt-2's stanton T80's you have to keep on looking but theyll pop up i picked up the tt-2s about a year ago for 100 with a decent mixer and bout 5 months ago luckly got some stanton 150s for around £100.

    Generally, make sure u dont get scammed tho, alot of decks on ebay ( more so the brand new ones) are scammers. Never buy of someone who will only accept money on their private email account. Someone with a phone number is a good idea.

    Friday ad is also good

    Mate them decks are £200 brand new, an the record he will be giving you will be shit... Hence he is giving them away, if he's your mate you should be gettin them for a maximum of £150 with the records.

    I learned on Numark TT1650s were very good for them money, they were 400 at the time but i think they are a lot less than that now!

    Other than that save up a fuck load and buy 1210s! hahaha :)
