I had a quick go. The Fender models were amazing. The only thing that was a bit of a let down was the UK80s, I like my JCM800s. I think it just needs to be tweaked with the Fender Fuse software, but unfortunately you can't access that when Demo-ing it in store. Buying the amp is a bit of a gamble.

It's crazy cheap, is just about giggable(Fender Watts are usually "louder"). The downside is the amp model selection is a bit limited, and the footswitch only goes between two models(though they may release a USB footswitch in future).

I'm strongly thinking of getting one. I was looking at the SCXD and other cheaper tube amps, but this looks like a steal. My only concern is that I may be better off spending my money on a dedicated modeler and powered cab(or SS amp like the Bandit), and that I'd probably need to get an FX loop put in at some stage. I'd really like a good Orange amp sound for example, and the only pedals that do that are quite expensive. The amp is so cheap though, I may be able to pick up a Tiny Terror in the future.
