Sound — 10
In my opinion, the sounds are very good. I'm playing it through a Jackson DKMGT and using an old-and-crappy DOD Grunge amp (biggest piece of crap, but this unit makes my crappy amp sounds better than it ever has). The effects overall are good and extremely tweakable (you could spend hours tweaking sounds). In terms of recording, the sound quality is also very good through my PC computer (2.0ghz dual core). I use Riffworks (which I also recommend, by the way) to record, and ASIO4ALL as my ASIO drivers because the ASIO drivers from DigiTech would not work (though they told me it wasn't the RP-350's fault, but rather, Riffworks's).
Overall Impression — 10
No matter what style of music you play, this device is sure to get the sound you want. Don't worry about the other guy Who's device broke, he surely got a lemon. If I lost possession of this device, I would surely buy a new one. For someone Who wants to get many effects or for someone Who wants to use their PC to record, this is the device for you (I was thinking about the GNX3 and GNX4, but I decided that I didn't want to spend that much and wanted a more portable device).
Reliability & Durability — 10
As far as I can tell, this device is really reliable. The other guy who complained about this thing dying after two hours surely got a lemon; it's quite obvious that not every RP350 will die after two hours, so I don't know what he's complaining about. In terms of gigging, this device isnt ideal because there is a significant delay when switching between presets.
Ease of Use — 10
Like it says on the website, there are two ways to get sound: you can either select an amp model/distortion combo with one knob and then dial in effects with another knob to make a great sound, or tweak a custom model to your hearts content. Though customizing a guitar tone through the matrix is a bit confusing and intimidating at first, once you read the manual (which is well written), you'll realize the logic behind the matrix and haven no trouble editing patches for hours. I had to update my RP350 manually through the website to version 1.1.
