The software is very easy to use, and is very powerful, in that it allows you to put your ideas down very quickly. The menus are easily accessible, and nothing is ever fiddly or non-intuitive IMHO. The only drawback is the cabling and routing at the back can get a bit overwhelming at times.
The sound coming from the synths and samplers is excellent. The fx and mixer are slightly lacking though. However you can rewire reason into a host sequencer and then apply fx, and do some proper mixing, so this works out alright.
I've had software and vsts crash and samples go missing. Reason has never ever crashed, and the files have never ever corrupted. Its as solid as a rock.
I love reason, it allows me to put ideas down very quickly and its shortcomings can be fixed by rewiring. Not a lot to dislike and lot to like.
