There's not really much I can say about the MPC that hasn't been said. It's a fantastic workhorse sampler and sequencer. I picked mine up for 250$, and while it's definitely not in amazing shape, it works. Dealing with floppy disks to save is a headache, but I usually track my beats into Ableton to mix anyway, so it's not a huge deal for me.
I rarely use it anymore but I can't bring myself to get rid of it. It served me so well for so many years. Sometimes I run sounds through it just to get the "MPC sound" then track them in. Haven't actually sequenced on it in at least 4 years though :(
