Right now after playing for 2 days I think its great, but maybe in a week it may not sound as great. Great amp.
Price: $450.00 (new)
Where Obtained: Guitar Center
Features:
It has digital effects:delay, flanger, chorus, and reverb. It has two overdrives with seperate eq settings for both clean and overdrive channels. Clean channel has crunch button. Also has FDDI which emulates valve amps.
Sound Quality:
It has a variety of sounds and can play most types of music and sound great. Great distortion and clean settings.
Ease of Use:
Very simple
Durability:
Just bought but I own a couple other Marshall amps and they have been durable. I expect this to be the same.

I chose this one because it had the name Marshall on it and it was reasonably cheap if someone stole it, i would probably buy a better one the clean channel could be a little brighter,and the distortion could be a little crunchier, but otherwise the most bang for the buck you can get out of an amp.
Model Year: 2001
Price: $389.00 (new)
Where Obtained: Henri's Music
Features:
Two channels (clean and dirty), four modes (clean, crunch, OD1, 0D2), clean has separate EQ, spring reverb foot-switchable channel switching, parallel FX loop powerful but gets a little muddy at a reasonably loud setting solid state
Sound Quality:
Use a jackson KX-10 kelly & a boss DS-2 Turbo Distortion with it i play blues-rock and metal, and suits these categories well you can play practically any style of music with this not nearly as good as the higher rank marshalls or mesas noisy when guitar is next to it when on, noisy on high gain, noisy when reasonably loud gets kind of muddy at high volumes, distortion's kinda muddy but the DS-2 takes care of it
Ease of Use:
A little fiddling around and a desirable tone comes out of it, but i can't say this amp is for 'perfect tone'
Durability:
Very reliable because of the solid state, no changing tubes never been repaired, had it for about a year very heavy duty, could take a bullet

I WASNT EVEN GOING TO BUY AN AMP BUT I FOUND A TREMENDOUS DEAL ON A CAB, SO I ADDED THIS. WHAT A GREAT BARGAIN, YES IT IS A SOLID STATE, BUT ONCE YOU'VE DIALED IT IN, IT CAN SOUND REALLY GREAT. I WOULD REPLACE IT IF LOST OR STOLEN, BEST ASPECT, PRICE, WORST ASPECT, INCOMPLETE FOOTSWITCHABILITY.
Model Year: 2001
Price: $299.00 (new)
Where Obtained: MUSICIAN'S FRIEND
Features:
EACH CHANNEL HAS INDIVIDUAL CONTROLS, CLEAN CHANNEL, GAIN, & 3 CHANNEL EQ PLUS CLEAN/CRUNCH SWITCH. OD CHANNEL, GAIN, 3 CHANNEL EQ, CONTOUR & OD1/OD2 SWITCH. SPRING REVERB CONTROLLED ACCROSS CHANNELS, HAS FX LOOP ON FRONT PANEL & FOOTSWITCH TO CONTROL CHANNELS & REVERB. TWO SPEAKER OUTPUTS FOR FULL STACK CAPABILITIES. SOLID STATE CIRCUITRY BUT SPRING REVERB. 100 WATS FILLS MOST VENUES.
Sound Quality:
ALL 4 CHANNELS PLAY WELL BUT THE CRUNCH SETTING ON THE CLEAN CHANNEL SUFFICES FOR ALMOST EVERYTHING I PLAY (EMO/PUNK) OD2 REALLY HAS A KICK FOR HEAVY STUFF, THE CLEAN CHANNEL IS KINDA STALE, I SWITCH OVER TO MY BLUES DEVILLE FOR CLEAN STUFF. THIS IS THE BEST SOLID STATE AMP I'VE EVER PLAYED, AND THE PRICE (300) WAS RIGHT.
Ease of Use:
YOU HAVE TO MANUALLY SWITCH BETWEEN CLEAN/CRUNCH & OD1/OD2, BUT THE FOOTSWITCH MAKES IT GOOD TO GET 2 SOUNDS IN ANY GIVEN SONG. PLUS YOU CAN SWITCH ON/OFF THE REVERB W/ THE FOOTSWITCH.
Durability:
I'VE ONLY HAD IT 5 MONTHS BUT IT SHOULD DO ALRIGHT, BEING SOLID STATE AND ALL.
