I love this mixer i use it when I'm in the studio to connect it to my speakers and to my piano and my guitar and to my desktop or my laptop when I'm working on music or just playing video games or wanna listen to music or watch videos.
Cheap and accessible, are the key selling points for this unit. I have one, however found it to have some issues with noise in the mix. Further, it straight-up died on me one day, despite light use for its life (bought new, never toured with it, well cared for, etc).
It was better than nothing, but I am now exploring other brands due to the disappointing experience (and short life).
This is my first hardware mixer, so I can't compare it to other mixers, but it does the job well! One problem I have noticed is that I have two synths and a tape deck and I only have one stereo input left, so I'll probably have to upgrade to a 1202 soon. For now, though, this is a pretty good mixer ^
