Ease of Use: Very easy to use, standard chorus controls plus a level control for the overall volume of the effect and two knobs for treble and bass. The manual includes just three basic settings, and a description of the controls, but I guess you wan't need anyway. Still waiting for an answering email from Jim Dunlop (see below). // 10
Sound: I play an AMStratocaster on a Fener Vibro Champ, mostly clean to slightly distorted sounds. No noise at all. The pedal sounds already great when all controls are at 12 o'clock, and I peak it therefrom. It achieves the most common chorus sounds, from ballads, "Come As You Are", etc. Great warm sound, non synthetic.
What I dislike is the volume boost when you turn it on (or the volume drop when you turn it off - I don't know). That's really a bummer. I've already wrote an email to Jim Dunlop, to find out if the same volumeboost also appears on the MXR analog delay. The analog delay was the pedal that I wanted to buy in the first place, but it wasn't available in my guitar store. So maybe I return it and order the other one. // 9
Reliability & Durability: Looks very durable, not as well as an boutique pedal but still ok. The socket for the power supply is on the right side which I find very bad placed because it requires more space on my pedalboard. The ducttape sticks nicely on the bottom of the pedal. // 8
Overall Impression: I use it mostly for Pink Floyd stuff and to get a thicker sound for my chord jingle. I really like the sound of it and the many but simple controls to tweak it. If this got stolen, I would get another. Cons: Volumedrop/boost. Well that was my first review, have mercy for my bad English I come from Austria, the land which brought you Arnold Schwarzenegger - also sorry for that. // 8
