Positives

+ Has a wide selection of Amp models - they are all very useable but I am not sure how accurate they are but I do notice that the AC15/AC30 amps don't have that chime of a real VOX amp.
+ The Vyzex software (free download) lets you tweek amp and effects settings easily and allows control of some aspects that the hardware doesn't e.g. cabinets and wah effect but no dual amping.
+ Through headphones it sounds great but the sound is very diffent from the amp out so setting up presets vua headphones is not the way to go.
+ loads of presets (300+) but see below

Negatives

- Presets have lots of bands/songs that I've not heard of. Some that I've heard of sound accurate others do not.
- There are no artist presets which is a shame.
- Volumes vary between amps - this is a big problem, some amps are way too loud and threaten to blow up your amp/headphones etc when you select them. Come on line 6 don't you test this stuff?
- Whilst you can save 100 or so of your own presets it is hard to adjust the existing presets (unless using the vyzex sw) because the pots are not continuous - touch a pot even slightly and what ever it controls will jump to what ever position the pot is in; there is no indication of the original value so you can't dial in small refinements.
- The knobs/buttons have a dual use with the save button doubling as a sort of shift key - this hasn't been thought through because this save button makes it easy to overwrite a preset when all you want to do is tweek it.

This little box of tricks belies it's size with superb, rich tone at an incredible price. The song based patches are, in the main, very accurate. Set the "Come as you are" patch for example and you'll struggle to tell the difference between it and the Nirvana original. The Cab modelling is very good, I find myself rolling the bass off where I'd normally put it as the tone has such a rich bottom end. Battery life is too short (4-6 hours) so I've already run out my first set after a couple of sessions - Might have been worth putting a PP3 battery in instead of 4AAAs. So it's worth getting an AC adaptor if you use it at home in front of your amp and then use the batteries for away-day sessions or jamming in the garden / bed / toilet / shower... It's also worth downloading the free Zyvex software which makes setting up tones much easier. On the subject of downloading, registering gets access to an online repository of Line6 users tones if you ever get bored with the factory presets or are searching for that critical sound for your cover band. The "tone audition" function is good; allowing you to set the POD up "live" and then save the patch when you're happy. Intuitive and easy to use interface, with the user guide being enough to get started. There is *nothing* bad to say about this effects box, so it's 5 stars from me.

Got one today, and I'm a little gutted with it... I've had to jam paper into the battery bay, as the batteries move about turning the machine on and off. Also, I've had to jam blue tack into the knobs as they dragged against the body of the machine. Another small gripe is that after tweaking for over eight hours today, I still don't have a guitar tone that matches my Pandora in terms of quality! I'm not saying 'don't get one', but make sure you know what you're buying..
One other thing I ain't keen on is that you make a patch using headphones, then when you come to record through the output/amp in, the sound that comes out is the patch you made minus the amp/cab settings (I think). Either way, it isn't the same sound you spent ages crafting. Didn't realize this until I recorded something whilst monitoring through the pc.. It sounded flat and digital. Back to the broken pandora methinks..

Wish I'd read more of the Amazon reviews before buying one of these.

The first thing you notice on taking it out of the box is that it feels more like a cheap toy than something you've just spent £90 on - I can't imagine it would last a gigging musician more than a week. Like another reviewer, I then had to spend ages trying to wedge the batteries in with folded paper to get it to stay on. Then realised that it absolutely eats batteries so have had to send off for a power adaptor. For the brief time that I managed to use it with batteries, I found it rather annoying that it doesn't just have an on/off switch, which means that you have to pull your guitar lead and the USB lead out of it to get it to switch off. Given its flimsy build quality, I can't imagine that you will get away with doing this for too long.

I thought that this combined with a little Vox Pathfinder 10 would do me fine for playing along to songs in my study but I'm finding that it isn't nearly as 'plug and play' as I was expecting. It seems to give off a lot of background noise and I'm having to do a lot of tweaking to try to get a tone that isn't 'muddy'

I have tried it with headphones and have to admit that it sounds great when used in this way but that isn't how I wanted to use it.

Verified Purchase
Bought this after much deliberation and looking at other products. I bought a mains adaptor as well as I don't want to be buying loads of batteries. What a good product. The sounds that come from it are really very good. I'm not a professional musician just someone who enjoys messing around and learning new tunes. I haven't found any problems with it at all. I do advise that once you've bought one go on line and look for the Line 6 manual which lists all the presets. You can then start playing with it. It is light and may have a tendancy to fall from the table or bench etc. I also bought some Sony headphones with it so I don't disturb the neighbours. I have read of people using these on stage at gigs and having no problems. All in all a very good purchase for the price. Thoroughly recommended. Try it.
