I use since its purchase in February 2012, mainly repeats but also to record demos.

This is my first purchase for a device of this type, but it is a very good choice, I am fully satisfied.

It is easily accessible to the novice, easy to use.
Highly portable because it is very light, but suddenly care, a musician can easily ship it by pulling on the cable.
It is ideal for quickly mixing after a rehearsal or a multitrack recording solo at home.
The built-in mics are quite impressive: the sound quality is very good for an acoustic guitar for example, and pretty good in the case of an acoustic drum (we get a usable recording).
The essential effects are there: reverb, chorus, distortion, etc. ...

The downside, if one were needed, I would be the equalizer is a bit limited on separate tracks. It does not offer as many opportunities as mixer and it's a shame, it excluded a live use.
I have not had the problem that is often recovered on jacks that get stuck, I cross my fingers because it is true that sometimes some cling taken hard ...

This is, to my knowledge, unparalleled product on features / quality / price ratio.
I remake the purchase if necessary.
