For the price I got it, it's not a bad simulator to start out with but if you want to find something that gives more variety check a pod out or some of the other mutli effect things that are out there.
Price: $60.00 (new)
Where Obtained: ebay
Features:
3 switches for 11 different types of amp heads ,cabinets and effects.Uses double A batteries but can use an adaptor as well.
Sound Quality:
I didn't like the distortion or the reverb and auto wah, The setting I liked was using the compressor with the blues amp and 1x 12 cab thru my little practice amp.Also the chorus was pretty good too as well.Also you could save a setting as well.
Ease of Use:
Easy to dial something in but on some effects it leaves something to be desired though.Also if it's if your 1st time with something like this you should brush up on the manual.
Durability:
It's made mostly of plastic so I wouldn't recommend it for live settings.

I got it because it was going cheap and from what I heard it wasn't bad. I wouldn't have paid the full price for it and wouldn't now that I've got it, I'd save for a floor based unit. But It's a good unit and I'm still glad I bought it, I enjoy playing with the different sounds.
Model Year: 2004
Price: $45.00 euros (new)
Where Obtained: Internet
Features:
AS well as the mentioned above. It has gain, treble, middle, bass and volume controls, as well as a control for the intensity of the effect, and a little button to set the time for effects like the delay. It has only two memory patches that you can save your own settings on (a few more would have been nice). I tend to use the manual setting. It's run by batteries 2xAA(never tried it) or AC adapter.
Sound Quality:
The sounds on it are quite good. I'll often play aroung with it to see the sounds that come out when I'm bored. The effects are good enough. For such a little thing they are good quality. The problem is that certain settings have a fuzzy sound in the backround (not due to the effects) that only happens whilst playing; if you mute the strings there's no sound at all.
Ease of Use:
Easy! Just try all the settings and choose the ones you like! The only problem here is that the writing on the knobs is sometimes difficult to see (white on a silver backround) and I've got quite good sight!
Durability:
I wouldn't thow it at the cat and expect to use it afterwards! I wouldn't use it on its own for live playing. It would get on my nerves swithing knobs every song! I have used it for recording on PC and it sounds great!
