My friend has 200 dollars to spend on a metal amp and I remember the cube series being good, is the 20x version alright? I remember one of them wasn't good.
What sound is he looking to get out of it? While the 20X is quite versatile, I like the clean and somewhat overdriven sounds of it, but not really the most distorted ones, personally I feel they are too fizzy. EDIT: Re-read your post, noticed "metal amp"... Yeah, personally I don't like it, although I can't mention any any other amp in this price range I like for this either.

I also like that it feels quite well made for something that cheap, and it sounds OK both at quiet and loud volumes.

There are a lot of reviews of it on Harmony Central, check those out also.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

The microcube offers some good tones to play metal, but due to its tiny speaker you have to play it at relatively low volume.
