Everything you could ask from a softsynth and more! The sounds are top notch, and it does everything it's supposed to!
Sound
Sampletank probably has the best sounds in any software sampler ever! The strings are amzing, and the acoustic piano is just what I've been looking for in a softsynth! If you use Sampletank along with Cubase SX and a nice MIDI controller, you'll find Triton's become obsolete! This setup kills a Triton any day!
Features
The STRETCH feature is a sample producer's dream come true! The effects are nice too! I like the reverb and delay that Sampletank provides...
Quality
Haven't had a bug yet!
Value
This product was everything I asked for and more, but still 380 dollars is quite expensive!
Manufacturer Support
Haven't had request support yet!
The Wow Factor
The Red Setup looks damn sexy!:)

I will be using this product for while. I thas a nice core of great samples that will be usefull for years to come.
Sound
Great sounds. Extremely easy to use. Still having a problem with importing wavs.
Features
Their stretch feature will be so useful. (once I get it to work with my own wav files) It has endless musical possibilities.
Quality
One feature doesn't work. Importing wavs.
Value
You can't find this many good sounds for this price any where right now.
Manufacturer Support
I am in the middle of a tech support issue now. I need the program to import my wav files, like it says on the box, but it doesn't do it correctly.
The Wow Factor
I love that fact that their website has lots of demos showing off its cool features. Stuff like this gets missed when you are just stairing at a box in a music store.

Sound
the 5G of sounds that come with it are at best OK, the ones I bought later (like ac gtr module) were excellent, so you need to buy the better sounds later to get great sounds.
Ease of Use
the interface is a bit clumsy and not the most in, tuitive. some features easy, other hard. it's easy to load up sounds but some of them take a while to load and you never get a warning that you'll wait 2 mins to load the sound you just want to audition. the interface has horribly small fonts and there's no ability to enlarge the plugin window (which would help immensely). if they overghauled the interface and made it easier, that would make it excellent.
Quality
again, ok sounds, nice reverb, a bit buggy, i always hope that loading doesn't crash.
Value
it should be in the 200 dollar range.
Manufacturer Support
excellent support, gave me a bunch of licenses as I moved from cptr to cptr, no problemt getting more auths.
The Wow Factor
I like the sampler overall, ok sounds, nice large library, but there may be better choices
