I compared it with another similar amp with Fender. The extra power for its price made me decide to buy it. Definitely I will buy again this amp and possible upgrade to the next wattage of this series. My favorite aspect of this amp is its versatility. I can even use it as a sound system in a medium sized party. For its price and features for me this is the best.
I find this to be a very versatile amp both for bass and acoustic guitars. Ideal for church use both for practice and actual performance in church. Its power is just enough to provide a complete sound with other musical instuments. the extra auxillary inputs is best used for my cd or tape recorder. This enables me to practice allong with my practice sources.
I use Korg chorus and Yamaha Zoom VAM 200. Not expensive but gives a decent sound quality. Versatility is the word. I can just adjust it to sound the way I like it. As fars as noise is concerned it is just a matter of balancing the tone configurations.
Very easy and straight forward to use.
I have no complaint with its durability. It is very sturdy.
Bought amp as it seemed to be a good value in comparison to other amps. If I had it to do over again, I would probably have bought smaller, cheaper practice amp and saved the rest for a higher wattage amp for performing.

-I expect to eventually buy a higher watt amp for performances
-No noticable noise or distortion
-Seems to have a lot of Punch for a Practice Amp
Can't Make Comparison, but relatively easy to use.
It has a lot of features that I have not yet tried.
The amp was sold without a manual. My only complaint is that it is not easy to download a manual from the Ibanez Website
I chose this one because I had more features than the others in this price/wattage range. Crate sounded just as good, but didn't offer the "Knobs" like this one. This really is a perfect "at-home" practice amp and I can't imagine how it could be improved upon and still remain at that price.

Gain, Bass, Mid, Treble, Presence, Volume Knobs.
Has FX loop send/return jacks; Speaker output jack; headphone jack.
This amp is obviously only good for a practice amp or a stage monitor. However, in these two purposes, it is an excellent amp. It has the tilt-back feature and it is sturdy.
I use it only for a practice amp. I play my 4 string LTD C-10 (By ESP) and my 5 string by Stellar.
This small amp has more features to fiddle with than most other amps of comparable size/price. Very easy to figure out. What I like about is that - if you don't know much about amps, it has enough on it to get educated on the "real amps" that you eventually will deal with as you progress.
This is a very dependable and sturdy amp. Heavy-duty hardend rubber/reinforced corners with strong nylon mesh to protect the speaker.
