Firstly, it's incorrectly described as "SLR" in the advertisement. The D90, for example is an SLR.

Seems to be OK at the price. This review is overall positive:

I wouldn't spend too much on extra lenses, filters etc. Probably a camera to get some experience with before you move on to something better. Sounds like a good camera for a younger person who doesn't want to be weighed down with a big camera.

You could consider something like a refurbished D3100 for not much more than the J1. The present-day equivalent of the D90 is something like the D7100 at about $1400, just to give you a guide.
