yup, i second that, having used both the bcf and the bcr a lot.
very good value for the money. here are the drawbacks:

* very loud fader motors, so midi feedback creates quite a racket...
* not very precise faders (correct me if i'm wrong, but i don't think 
you'll ever get 14bits of resolution from them, even though they can 
emulate this mode)
* it's quite bulky and heavy.

still, at that price point, who gets to complain?
