Overall, I am sastisfied with the flexibility, options, and sounds of the 2120. I would definitly buy this unit again. My favorite aspect is the interface. Much nicer than any other rack unit, except maybe the T.C. Electronics G-Force. There is nothing that I don't like about the Digitech.

Contains 12ax7 preamp tubes for more natural sounding distortion. AC powered. Some knobs & buttons included in an easy to use interface. Can be run in mono or stereo.
I use a Fender Strat and Gibson Les Paul with it. Everything then goes to a Fender 4x10 Hot Rod Deville.
I play all styles of music with it.
It's not noisy at all until you're using a lot of gain and no noise gate.
The effects are all high quality -- easily taking the place of most of my Boss pedals.
Very easy to program.
The manual is not very clear, but if you've used other effects units, you'll figure it out quickly.
It takes me a while to get good sounds, but I'm a perfectionist.
I've used it at least 4 days a week since I got it, and taken it across the country and on many tours. Never had a problem.
Most Digitech stuff seems to be well constructed.
This is a really good piece of gear. If lost or stolen I would get another. I don't know if there is an easier way to make this unit programable but if there is it could use it. If you spend the time you can really make some kick a## settings. Thanks for listening to me babble.

This unit is very easy to activate, yet difficult to master. Kinda reminds me of the game othello "a minute to learn, a lifetime to master". This pre-amp processor contains a 12ax7 and dual s-disc processors. This is basically the brain in the Johnson Millenium amps.
I have been using this unit direct & with my Mesa Boogie amps. It is well suited for every style. It has almost limitless combinations of effects & sounds. It is not a noisy unit beleive it or not. The advantage of the dual S-disc processors is it allows for more options when setting the program parameters.
I can't give this a great rating here. This unit requires a lot of effort to maximize its potential. You do not need an engineering degree but you have to work hard.
Solid - steel chasis, easy to use interface. I would gig without a backup.
Excellent processor for the price. Effect are above and beyond those of effects pedals like the RP series.

Has all the effects you would ever want or need. Excellent reverb, chorus, delay, pitchshifting, distrotion, and wah/wammy effects. Graphical display with built in tuner. Totally programable.
Effects are clean and clear and sound faithfull to their analog counterparts.
So easy a child could use it. Manual is very thorough
