Sound — 9
Noiseless. No bypass but crystal clear. It's not perfect when pitch shifting, but such a thing is totally impossible and even pedals 10x the price have tracking issues; this has a little difficulty at times but for the most part is awesome. Being able to custom mix the dry feed in gives you access to organ sounds and so on. Pretty fun to play with. Not sure on flutter or detune, but it's largely a Whammy pedal and they're just bolt on afterthoughts. I bought it to play some of Morello's stuff and with a tremolo the into to Demiurgo using the organ sound that can be created using pitch shift.
Overall Impression — 9
Far from perfect, but if you want a flexible pitch shifter for next to nothing for home recording or maybe occasional gig use, it's a good deal. I looked at the DigiTech Whammy and the Boss PS-5/6, but the Whammy is very expensive, supposedly not as good as it used to be and doesn't have a lot of flexibility while the PS-5 was discontinued and the replacement PS-6 is missing a lot of features and is far more expensive. If there's one thing I'd like, it's an analogue footpedal like a Wah or the Whammy, but for this price point, it's probably better to keep it simple.
Reliability & Durability — 7
It's plastic, but rock solid. You can see how ridiculously thick the case is when you change the battery. The base is actually fairly thick metal as well. One area of concern, however, is the footswitch. Most of the pedals I've used have a fairly durable Switch mounted off-board with a flying wire so you can replace it if it goes wrong and it doesn't put any stress on the PCB. Behringer have fitted a very standard surface-mount clicky button (metal square with a big plastic circle and four smaller ones) and a lot of sponge. Eh, it hasn't broken, but I don't expect that to last.
Ease of Use — 4
For the most part, the pedal's easy to use. Flick to the mode you want, put the pitch where you want and use the footswitch. However, it's not always clear what the dials do in each mode, there's no way of storing presets and the dials appear to be misaligned to the silkscreen meaning you have to listen and count changes; (or look at the LED) Battery is in an awkward place; the hinge is actually a spring pushing two cylinders apart which hold the footswitch on which you remove with "a ballpoint pen" (I used a DS stylus) and then replace trying not to misplace the spring.
