It's probably pretty good for $200. Does this place, soundcontrol, are they selling new or used gear? I wasn't a big fan of Transtube or anything else digital as I'm trying to move away from that. I recently got an all tube amp and am not looking back.

Also, a simple question of 'is this amp any good' is kind of subjective. Good for what?

I think you can find better, especially if you can stretch your budget but if you are just starting out and want a decent amp with some built in effects it might be fine for ya.

very nice amp. I owned one a while ago, but I really didn't have any use for it when I got the mesa. If you're low on cash, the Bandit is a good way to go, altough I would have saved up for a VK or something
