Sweet deal for lots of headroom and versatility

Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
Seems sturdy and rugged. I have it in a rack, so, I am not too concerned with it getting banged up a lot.
What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could?
Tons of tonal options. My favorite setting is the R&B model, with a little bit of compression and emphasis on the mid-range. I don't use the built in tuner, because I have a Korg rack mount tuner that is more accurate and gives me more tuning options, so I run through it and connect the output to the input on the amp. I use a lot of foot pedal effects, so I really haven't toyed with the built in ones, though I might in the future. I primarily bought this amp for the modeling. I own a LD10 Studio amp for smaller gigs as well, so I really dig the tone flexibility.
How is the tone?
Obviously, it's not the same as having an actual Eden or B-15, but the tones are there, and quite useable. I really dig being able to save custom settings, and am considering buying the FBV short board controller in the future.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
Lots of tonal options for any style. Again, I bought this amp primarily for the amp modeling, so, find a tone you like and save it in one of the 4 banks.
