I love this unit so much that I got a second one which is why I am writing this review. My first one was new and I don't recall what I paid for it...$maybe $300. This one $75 bucks. You can't go wrong!!!
Price: $75.00
Where Obtained: Ebay
Features:
This is an AC unit that you need to program to get the combination of sounds that you want. There is much variation in the fx that it offers and is MIDI controllable.
Sound Quality:
I like this unit. It is compact and provides great quality delays, reverbs, chorus, and compression programs that I use.
Ease of Use:
You need to play with the unit to get the sound that you are looking for. Once done you just have to program it. Be aware however that the lithium battery last between 3-5 years and then needs to be replaced. Reprograming hell.
Durability:
I haven't had any problems other than the lithium battery. So far it has lasted me greater than 14 years.

It's a fantastic fx unit that I couldn't possibly be without, so forget all these floor based fx units and get one of these.
Price: $399.00 Pounds Sterling (new)
Where Obtained: A1 Music, Manchester
Features:
It stands head and shoulders against the units being produced today
Sound Quality:
There are some brilliant delay effects using up to 6 delays at the same time, and the delays go up to 8 secs. Also some of the hammond and Rhodes fx are amazing when applied to a guitar.
Ease of Use:
It's amazingly easy to program and it's midi capabilities make it pretty useful for keyboard applications
Durability:
Well I have used mine on the road for the last 12 years...say no more!
