Sound — 4
I'm using a Gibson Explorer Pro, a Home made Strat with Fender Texas Specials or an Epiphone Les Paul Custom with SD pickups, and I really never got a sound I liked out of this amp. Granted, it's much better than the comparable Line 6 products, but it definitely still sounds like a modelling amp. It can cover everything from country through to brutal metal tones, but they all sound quite flat and fake.
Overall Impression — 3
I wouldn't buy this amp unless I was planning to just play in my room and no where else. I bought it because I thought it would be a huge upgrade from my old Marshall MG... to be honest, the MG sounded better. It DOES cover a huge array of sounds, just not that well. It sounds less digital than the Line 6 Spiders, but instead of being digital sounding, it just sounds flat and quite average.
Reliability & Durability — 2
Input jack broke within 2 weeks, the amp heated up to much that it occasionally turned itself off. Not sure whether mine was defective, but I wasn't too happy about how it performed. On stage, mid song, it began changing banks and patches sporadically. It played pretty much every sound on the amp within 10 seconds. Very embarrassing.
Features — 9
Tons of features, almost too many to be honest. 36 amp models or something, lots of effects... this amp certain isn't lacking in features. I bought it with the FCB1010 which was a really nice MIDI control board. It really did make accessing this amps features a lot easier.
