I picked one up from Guitar Center yesterday. After messing around with it for a couple days, I'd give it a B+. Its pefect for a little portable practice amp. Thw sounds are very good. It's not overly expensive, and from what I've herd it works well for direct recording. It's pretty easy to figure out how to use, and there is a computer program you can download and use to directly edit the presets on your computer screen after hooking it up via a typical USB data cable. I haven't had too much trouble with that part of it, but its a ton of fun to screw around with and a few of the presets are top notch. My only grip is so far it doesn't really sound all that good through my VOX either chained into my guitar cable or directly conected via the effects loop of my amp. I need to do some further testing to make sure its not user caused before I assume its just one if the limitations. But if you want something to take to work for your lunch break (like I use it) to plug in for a brief and private session - it's great.
