    There's lots to choose from, but the Hercules is one people often recommend, although it seems to polarize opinion from crap to great. My advice is go and have a look at a few, try and speak to a few knowledgeable people at the shop about what you want to do and how technical you want to get - then go hunt online for the unit you like unless they give you a decent price ;).

    For example, do you want to just mix as a regular DJ might with decks, to just use two channels and an EQ, or do you want lots more options and faders that most software allows for? This will play an important part n your decision.

    A few other quick recommendations:

    M-Audio X-Session

    M-Audio X-Session Pro

    Evolution UC33

    Faderfox (these are awesome)

    Just google any of the above.
