Opinions of Pioneer DJM 500?

So I need to upgrade my mixer and saw what I think is an absolute bargain? a DJM 500 for 150 quid, advertised pretty close to where I live. Obviously the mixer isn't in perfect condition but apparently all functions work perfectly.

I was wondering whether this is a good move considering lots of new equipment is now digital and this is analogue, but it shouldn't really matter if I'm using CDJs and TTs, right? But does this mean that I can't hook it up to my laptop and use traktor?

I read some reviews online which said it is a "horrible mixer". I find this quite hard to believe with pioneers good reputation for quality products...
