I've been playing guitar for only a few years, (drums for 10+, bass for about 5, keys for maybe a bit longer) and more recently making electronic music for my project Time Zones and Area Codes.

I bought it from guitar center for a little less than $150. I liked the reviews on the site and I needed an interface to record my guitar with.

It's super easy to use, sounds awesome, comes with free software (without needing 'unlock' codes), has awesome amp modeling technology, sounds great with more than just guitars, has 2 XLR inputs for mics (which recently got me into doing more ambient/noise work), and pretty much all-around rocks. The bypass button is the icing on the cake though, not having to use their crazy digital rigs when you don't necessarily need to. Awesome!

Clipping noises, and lots of them. Even when there's no peak going on, I sometimes get an annoying little ticking sound that ruins my loop or track or whatever i'm working on. It usually can't be EQ'd out without losing my perfect tone. Also, the sounds are a bit 'digital' sounding, so unless you're using the bypass with certain instruments you're going to want to punch your studio monitors in the face.

In all honesty, I don't think it's that big of a drawback (unless you plan on playing football with the device), but it's not built THAT great. It will last, as long as you treat it with semi-special care.

This thing is amazing. Sure it's not a tank, but if you need to record guitar, vocals, bass, keyboards, didgeridoo, trumpet, violin, harmonica, or just about anything this is definitely for you.
