is it good for the price? if not, what other amps are good around that price range?

my friend said that they're good for trivium/machine head sound (which i want)
how much do you have and are you willing to go used?

as a general rule of thumb: DSL > TSL, I'll explain why later, but right now, I'm off to eat (that is if someone doesn't say it before I get back)

For the best tingle, use Original Source mint. That shit feels amazing on your balls.

For a start - good amp, loud as you will ever need without being incredible overkill, i would actually say you could find a different, better amp for the style you want though, Im gonna recommend you a used peavey 5150/6505 combo, also yes, they are a little overpriced, especially from new, listen to the voice of experience!!!
