Other than the works that are printed in this really dark color ( might even be black ) to identify the ports on the back I have no complaints.

You MUST have a computer to realize the full potential of this unit! So you can do "deep" editing of things that you can not access from the front panel
Model Year: 1999
Price: $299.00 (new)
Where Obtained: GuitarCenter
Features:
I can say nothing but good things that everyone else has said about this piece. It is the best money a guitar player can spend. I like mine so much I upgraded to the Pod Pro!
Sound Quality:
Sounds incredible, sound engineer friends love it and say that the sims are great! Most of them did not even know it was a recording of the Pod until I told them!
Ease of Use:
Extremely easy to use.
Durability:
Metal case, heavy duty pots. The finish is chipping off mine from hauling it around with other metal objects in the case with it. But it is really not a problem it has a heavy coat of primer under the baked on finish and a little bit of the wifes fingernail polish will cover up the little white dings nicely.

I have had all kinds of guitar amp and effects equipment over the years (Marshall, Roland, Peavey, ADA, etc.) and I am really impressed with the Line6 POD!

I no longer perform live, but am doing a lot of recording in my home digital recording studio. I needed a DI box and the Line6 POD fit the bill and then some.

This unit has a huge variety of sounds! I am a big fan of the warm tube tone (can't stand solid state), and the tones I can crank out of the POD are good. It comes close to the real thing, but does realistically fall short.

For the $$$ and the features, you cannot go wrong with this unit. If you have a PC with MIDI capability, you can customize your sound even further!

Good stuff!!

great tool for recording, or with headphones in a bedroom, or just a really neat toy to have!! very realistic amps sounds, good fx, very easy to use what else could you ask for!!!
Model Year: 1999
Price: $300.00 (new)
Where Obtained: guitar center
Features:
cab simulator, amp types, different fx, user presets, and controls that look like the front of your amp but if you buy a pod invest the extra 60 bucks on a FB4 floor controler its makes it a much more flexable tool!!!!
Sound Quality:
amp simulators sound pretty good, good selection of sounds from high gain to nice clean fx are good but not a lot of selection
Ease of Use:
pretty straight foward, set your knobs up so you like the sound, select an amp, an effect if you like press save. end of story
Durability:
pretty good as far as I can tell metal case pretty durable.....

Highly recommended for the price. I've got a small Mesa/Boogie combo and while it sounds great, I've been looking for something more versatile. For less than $300 this unit offers flexibility and the ability to record good guitar sounds without bothering the neighbors. I've posted some of my recordings using the POD at http://www.dolanbrau.com/tunes.
Price: $285.00 (new)
Features:
The unit offers a dozen or so base amplifier models plus chorus/tremolo/flange/delay digital effects, as well as a separate reverb.
Sound Quality:
The amplifier sounds are pretty faithful. Maybe not "all the way there" to purists, but awfully close. There's a switch to turn off the cabinet emulation when running through an amp or PA.
Ease of Use:
I haven't gone so far as to mess with the stored settings, which apparently is difficult to do without a PC hooked up. I get all I need right now from the simple amp and effect selector dials.
Durability:
No problems so far, but I'm not planning on taking it out of the house.
