Are they as bad as people say, just because it's off brand. I want the electric 5-string and the acoustic bass. Should I or should'nt I. I'm not going to be performing with it, just messing around and recording with it.

go play one, and see for yourself- you might love it, it might suit your needs perfectly.

Don't buy one sight unseen. You might end up unhappy.

If you can test play it, do it, if not, go for a safer bet.

I was kind of hoping for advice from someone that has actually played one.

Wheres MetalUpTheAss when you need him?

I have a Rogue SX100B. I purchased it about two years ago as a starter bass, and it has served that purpose well. As far as quality of the instrument goes, I'm no expert, but it is moderately okay. Like I said, it has served my purposes, I've played for church and some small gigs, but it is starting to break down. The tone knob is very loose right now, and the biggest problem I have had is with the input jack, the wires kept coming detached. There is some rattling of the strings, and the neck doesn't play too fast.

Based on my experience (however, I do have the lowest budget Rogue out there...) a Rogue is good for starters, maybe if you are just testing the bass waters, you can do so without spending a bundle, but I wouldn't trust them (at least mine) to anything above small gigs.

I agree with ToolBass_dude and Iluvpowerchords, try it before you buy it.
