I have one, I love it. The sounds aren't half bad, and they're are a decent range of effects. Plus it has an audio out, so you can use it to record through the computer. I suggest getting a power supply though, it eats up batteries very quickly.

for the money it's incredible... I have the Pod XT Pro in my rack and a Pocket Pod for messing about with at home, and the pocket pod compares very favourably to its bigger brother... for 60 quid it's an absolute steal

I have one that I only use for silent headphone practice. It is great for what it is: a cheap compact little modelling amp without a speaker. If you have a nice pair of headphones, it can sound pretty good. I think it is good value for money. Most of the presets aren't great, but you can tweak to taste & save your preferences. I particularly like hooking it up to my computer, so I can jam along with a file and hear both my playing and the recorded song through my headphones. When I practice through my other amp, I still wind up using it as my tuning pedal.

I love mine. If you buy a Sonic Stomp and run PP--> SS--> FXin you'll get some really good sounds from it. To save battery life, turn off reverb, the reverb effect on it uses loads of batteries.

i've got a vox amplug, it has a good tone and gain range and very handy when i don't want to wake up the old lady. good value at around £30.
I've been imitated so well I've heard people copy my mistakes.

I bought I pocket pod and used to for about 3 weeks, you quickly get bored of the presets, you can't get any good distortions but there are okay overdrives and the modulations are pretty average as well but I really did like some of the effects on there it's fun to play around with. If you can't use an amp it's the next best thing.

I got a v-amp 2 which does the same job. Sounds ok with my fender and I use it when the kids are in bed.
