Best Faders on a USB MIDI Controller/Keyboard?

Best Faders on a USB MIDI Controller/Keyboard?

So Ive got a Yamaha KX49 but I really need some faders, sick of using a mouse for everything.

So I started looking at swapping the KX49 for maybe an alternative with faders on it. I checked out the Axiom (& Pro) 49, Akai MPK49, Novation Impulse 49, and Alesis Q49. All of the faders had really short "throws" (right term?), and seemed cheap & wimpy except the Akai and the Axiom Pro. Those are at the top-end of my budget though and the Akai simply wouldnt fit on my desktop anyways.

Then I started thinking about just ADDING a USB mixer. Perhaps the Behringer BCF2000 or the Korg NanoKontrol2. I like the idea of motorized faders on the BCF2000 but its SO UGLY IMO! It sez its black but every pic looks navy blue lol. The Korg could fit nicely on top of a blank spot ON my KX49 actually, but its fader throws seem ridiculously short too!

Anyone have an opinion on any of these options?
