I haven't seen much talk about these two heavyweights here on UG. Does anyone have experience with either of these? Namely:

1. Durability?
2. Ease of use?
3. Giggable? (practical for gigs)
4. Studio workable? Is it good for recording?
and of course.
5. How good is the tone? Does it emulate well?

Add anything else that you may have noticed. I'm looking into buying some sort of multi-effects unit soon, and I really don't feel like wasting cash on something subpar (who does?). Thanks a lot in advance.

I played thru a Black Box at NAMM in the EBMM booth, it was very nice for both guitar and bass.
