"Lives up to its promise; must have for travelling soloists on a budget."
Very, very satisfied with the sound and all the 'zero-latency' performance. If only it could also double up as a 4-channel mixed, as I had initially thought it to be...*sigh*

Sound
Great tones, great variety. Most of the models and signature patches are quite accurate. Sounds absolutely fabulous when plugged out through my Marshall practice amp. Ultra-low latency and very responsive controls on the models gives you the feel of using real-life stompboxes/amps alright.

Features
Can play only 2 instruments at a time (mic/guitar or guitar/synth), which is kinda of a let down. Can play/record max at 16-bit/44.1kHz. No phantom power for condenser mics. But if you're the kind who mostly 'plays guitar and sings', this is more than optimal. Pod farm 2 is mind-blowing; Ableton Lite & Riffworks - not so (but who uses them anyways...)

Ease of Use
The whole register-and-update-to-Pod-Farm-2 thingy via Line6 Monkey takes some time and is a bit annoying (wonder why it doesn't ship with Pod Farm 2 anyways!)..but once done, it's just plug and play, which is pretty awesome.

Quality
Looks a bit plasticy, but at that price are you really expecting something with a metal chasis? I would rather say I like it because of that - it's really light, small and can be easily carried around. Tones and recordings, if tweaked a little bit according to your gear set-up, can sound real pro-quality read more - that's all that I needed, at least. It more than lives up to its promise, I'd say.

Value
You are getting to toy around with gear worth thousands of dollars and play/record sounds which might be impossible to bring out in the real world because of your budget, *and*, even if for nothing else, you are getting a nice USB interface with qulaity ASIO drivers giving incredibly low latency - at this price, it's a helluva bargain!

Manufacturer Support
No manuals with the pack (u gotta donwload the pdfs from their site, but the arrangement is not very intuitive) and Line 6 online support is quite slow. I seriously hope you don't end up getting a defective unit.

The Wow Factor
Oh yes it's a *must* for any recroding guitarist (on a budget) who's serious about his/her tone...the tones are freaking sexy!
