What are some pros and cons about both?

I play some metal, not much. I play blues, some classic rock, Scorpions, Boston, Floyd. Some modern stuff. I like Gary Moore, Jimi, Brian May and Eric Clapton.

How much is the Cube 60?

Cube 60:
Pros: Nice high gain metal sound (Metal, R-Fier settings), pretty decent clean (Black Panel setting)
Cons: Doesn't do so well at the mid gain stuff, which I've heard the Vox excells in. I find a lot of the mid gain amp models (Brit Combo, Tweed, Classic) to be a little too muddy for my tastes, especially on my Les Paul.

Edit - In conclusion, I recommend the Vox.
- Gibson Les Paul Studio
- Squier Standard Strat
- Roland Cube 60
- Visual Sound Jekyll & Hyde
- Boss OD-3
- Behringer EQ700

yep vox it on that one, i can honestly say that the cube is good for a lot of distortion, or a lot of clean, it's kinda one or the other, and it does the 2 very well, but it's not as organic as the vox is imo. the vox has a tube in the power amp section, and although every1 says that these tubes don't do anything, a lot of pretty high up ppl say that that lil tube makes a noticable difference.

I think the biggest advantage with the Vox is that it claims to be "analog" modeling (changing the circuit path) rather than using digital sound replication.

Vox, i have a cube 30 but its a main metal machine, it can handle other stuff but i hear the vox is better for other styles

Yep, you're mostly right. The modeling is digital, but then part of the tone shaping is analog, since they send the signal through a tube and a speaker simulator.

It helps when I read the manual

Vox.
But I'm gonna recommend you get a Blues Jr and an overdrive pedal, you'll get a much nicer sound, but a lot less versitility.

Cons: People are biased, and theyll always (mostly) try and get you to believe their opinion is the only right one.

And then you get people like that (no offense to whomever it was) who just jump on a bandwagon and go with whatever he/she hears from the grapevine.
