Where do you live in the world, and what is your budget? you need to help us help you. When you start giving prices like $150 most automaticly assume your in the USA

I live in the Philippines and I have Php 7000(about $172).I'm just trying to look for used and pre-loved guitar amplifiers(if in case you say that I wouldn't find brand new amps for that price).

No worries, you have the right idea.

Hear are a few amps to look for in your area:
Fender mustang II
Peavey Vypyr 30
Vox VT40
Roland Cube 40

These are all Modeling amps, and will be really good for you. I don't know the used prices in your area, but these run $100-$150ish in my area.

Any other amps you can recommend cause the only amp I've found worth the price is the Roland Cube 40(about $210)?

BTW,I just found a Roland Spirit 50 for about $185.I think I could extend my budget to that only.

The roland cube40 will be much more versitile for you. It has several amp models and it has built in FX

See if you can try both and decide which you like the best

When a seller indicates that an amplifier is 40-60 watts,what does it mean?

It means he really does not know and thinks it is between 40 and 60 watts. The cube 40 is 40 watts.

Screw the Zoom g2. The G3 is far more useful for bedroom playing/practicing and costs about the same.

Well it depends on what you want out of your tone. The Fender Mustang II and Vox VT40are nice if you play rock and need better cleans. The Peavey Vypyr30 is a good amp, but it excells at higher gain musical styles like metal.

I like harder music, so the Peavey vypyr 30 would be my choice.

IF I had to choose from only those 4 it would be either the Vypyr or the Cube but that doesn't really address your original question. It's perfectly true to say that 40w is 40w regardless of it being solid state or valve BUT there's a world of difference in reality. Solid state amps sound worse the louder they go whereas valve amps tend to sound better. Because of this, it will be very difficult to play a gig with a 30 or 40w amp that is solid state. It will get loud enough but it will sound awful. Conversely, a 15w or 20w valve amp will be more than enough. I play a 60w valve amp and I'm loud at a gig with the volume hardly up at all. The other guitarist in the band uses so little power on his 50w that he's currently looking at changing it for an 18w and believe me, in a valve amp that will be more than enough for most situations, especially as he can use a mic to put it through the PA too.

The amps you mention are decent amps but if you want to play gigs at some point, you'll need to change it so it may be a false economy. I'd say that if you just want an amp for now and use in the home, get a Vypyr or a Cube but if you want to use it for gigs, save a bit more and get a valve amp. You're other option is to use a solid state amp of much bigger capacity. I'd say no less than 100w. That way it will sound decent at home and be loud enough for gigs, though it won't sound anything like as good as a valve amp. Honestly, if you want to gig, a 15w-20w valve amp is the best option for you by some margin.

I just picked up a floor model Roland 40xl for $185. Cant tell it was a floor model. This amp ROCKS. It is loud, very loud. It has multiple effects, that work and sound great. Unless you are a tone snob, lol, this amp will do you right. If only you could find a used one or floor model. Not alot of used though, as they are soooooooooo nice. Really. Maybe not for the "professional" musician? But I think most of us would love this amp.

Going back to those 4 amps the OP asked about:

The Mustang series of amps are great if you like classic rock/clean/everything but scooped super heavy metal.
The vypyrs aren't that good for classic rock/clean but make up for it by being absolutely superb at heavy metal.
The cube falls somewhere in the middle, IMO. If you read this and think you want a mix of the Mustang and Vypyr, this may be the best option for you.
I really didn't like the VOX VT series at all. It just sounded like a worse version of the cube.
