What's the general consensus of them? Good for metalcore? I see they're pretty cheap - is that a bad thing as they might sound bad or are made poorly?

They're great. They're cheap because they're underrated. They are the precursor to peavey xxx/jsx/3120 etc and in some peoples opinion are better. I have the 212 combo and its sweet i picked it up for £300 less then bugera, valve kings etc. They have ALOT of gain as well. Hell even the crunch channel has lots of gain and doe the 80s type brown sound.

great amps some of the variants look a little shabby but the sound more than makes up for it

the key part there

^You buy an amp based on how it looks?

They're great amps. I see them on CL every now and then for around $200-$250.

I've had tube amps for a while now, but never actually had any go down on me

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.
