-i wouldn't care too much if it was lost or stolen, these are a dime a dozen plus mine is on the fritz, i'd probably look into other trems, maybe a vintage pn-2
Where Obtained: eBay
-3 knobs - rate, wave and depth
-takes batteries or ac adapter
-does what i want it to do, i rarely use trem - i use it when i want to play my bloody valentine songs, which these days is rarely - for that purpose it works perfectly. i have mild trem on my ac30 that works for most other purposes, so this pedal gets the least use out of all pedals on my board along with the ch-1 chorus. i can see myself exploring possibilities w this pedal in the future though, so it stays on the pedal board.
-yes it does suck some tone, especially with overdriven sounds, i have not performed the c4 mod on it, i may in the future but frankly it's not that big of a deal with me since this pedal doesn't get that much use
-easy to use, just tweak away - haven't tried any other trem pedals but it's much more flexible than the trem on my vox ac30 - although it does suck tone when being used
-mine is constantly on the fritz. it switches on by itself sometimes. i probably just have a bad pedal, though. i hardly use it so no big deal.
-it's a boss so it's built like a tank
I looked at the usual big names, Digitech, Ibanez, etc... this pedal was as close to what I wanted that I could find, again... I couldn't get it to "cut" out between pulses, but that's just a minor quibble.

Rate, Wave and Depth all have good ranges, although I kinda wish it would have a setting where it "cuts" the signal between pulses..
I mainly use this pedal for ambience, usually with an auto-wah and delay... it gets nice and spacey
Easy to use... turn knobs, step on pedal...
It's built like a tiny tank, and I've never had a problem with a Boss unit yet.
