So I'm trying to decide on which amp to buy, there's plenty of threads like this but hopefully someone will still be interested enough to reply! Its between:

Vox Valvetronics AD30VT

or

Behringer V-ampire LX210 (or LX1-112)

I like that they both have built in effects and different amp and speaker models but I need some persuasion to help with my decision.

I'm using a Gibson SG standard and I like prog-rock and effects, I'd be using the amp mostly for messing around in my room, but it'd be awesome if it could stand up to drum kit and other instruments so I can jam with friends.

Oh yeah, any other amp suggestions are welcome!

Id go for the vox, i'd probally guess you'd get a nice sound out of it.
Epiphone LP, SD Alnico 2 Neck, Pearly Gates bridge, Ibanez S series.
Marshall VM2266c, Marshall JVM410H + 1936c, Marshall MG100DFX
Vox Tonelab ST, Boss GT-8, Korg Ax1500g.
MXR Classic Distortion, MXR 10band EQ, Dunlop Crybaby

Go for the Vox. It beats the Behringer at every aspect.

I don't know Behringer, but I have the 50 watt 2 speaker version of the Vox. Kick ass amp. I originally bought it because I couldn't afford a real marshall tube amp(I want a DSL 100), so I figured I'd go with a cheaper tubey. While I still want the marshall, this Vox has really impressed me.

On Fluid, you can get some really high gain distortion for shredding, and you can do some pretty heavy riffs, though I find modern and molten better for that. Its two clean channels funk and glass, are really clean. My last amp was a Marshall MG30DFX...and if I had it on clean and turned it up too loud it started to distort and get all grainy. The Vox does that too...but I have to have it at nearly full volume on the 50watt setting before it does.

If you want a really really heavy tone...don't go for the Vox though. You can get heavy...but my old marshall practice amp could go heavier. I like the Vox though because its very versatile, and besides I play lighter stuff usually...punk/blues-rock/80s metal/thrash so I don't need a really heavy distortion.

Anyways thats my 2 cents.

Theres no doubt about it.
EVERYONE you ask will say the AD30VT.
Its kind of quality vs quantity, except the AD30VT has almost as much quantity as the Behringer in terms of effects and modelling but also has the simplicity, quality build and a real tube Pre-amp.
Gibson Les Paul Studio
Epiphone SG Special Customshop
Jackson JS30RR

Dunlop Crybaby Original
Boss Metal Zone
Digitech Screamin' Blues
Ibanez Lo Fi
Behringer Tuner

Marshall AVT100X

No it doesn't. It has a tube in between the power amp and the pre amp, and it is part of the power section of the amp.

Awesome, I was leaning more towards the vox, I just didnt know much about the behringer so I thought I'd get some opinions! Thanks everyone!

I've never played the Vox (well, okay, once in a guitar shop, but I was trying a pedal as apposed to the amp) but I have owned a V-ampire.

Which is possibly the biggest pile of horse-shit I have ever played. Everything is stale, it lacked volume rendering it useless for my band practices, though would not be an issue with a PA. On the plus side, the range of effects is pretty decent, though their individual quality is very questionable. Decent for a starting out amp, and for bedroom practice, but other than that I'd stay clear.
