Simple answer. No.

You could get a pretty good tube combo for that price.

That sucks. Get either a tube combo, or nothing at all.

From what I've heard, the cleans are bland and the overdrive is terrible even on the Fender scale (and with this I mean the overdrive channels of Fenders - the overdriven clean channel tone is good on tube Fenders).

My friend has one, and he plays in a pop/punk/emo band. Says a lot really...

The cleans are OK and the gain is fairly alright. It not nearly heavy enough for metal or anything like that, but if you're playing what I mentioned, you'll be OK.

...But get a tube combo.

If you like it then go for it. Tube amps are undoubtedly better sounding... no argument, but people are to hung up on what sounds "good" and having good "tone." If it sounds good to you then get it. You really have to have a little experience playing to appreciate a tube powered amp anyway IMO.

The difference about tone when you don't have the ear to appreciate better tone too well, is in time. You'll ear will develop over time. If you get a bad amp, you will start to dislike it sooner or later. If you get a good amp, you won't dislike it (or atleast not so soon).
