Pros: This is a solidly built unit, and hats off to Zoom for including an AC adapter. You can get a lot of good sounds out of it if you're willing to spend time with the manual and do some tweaking. I found the amp modeling to be pretty good, and I love the tube preamp setting. I used that as the basis for building new patches, and even if I'm not using other effects the preamp modeling is always on. I like the delay, and most of the modulation effects (chorus, phase, flange) sound good to me once they're dialed in.
Cons: For the price I almost hate to criticize, but here goes. I wasn't impressed with the compressor, octave, and distortion modes. That's OK since I have separate, better analog versions of those that I run in line ahead of the B2. If you don't and want to get those effects you'll really need to work on them. I didn't knock a star off, because for 85 bucks you still get a lot in the other areas.
Other Thoughts: Spend time with the manual learning how to dig into this effect and you'll get some good sounds. All that plus you get a tuner and a simple drum machine. What a deal.

Pros: I bought this a couple years ago when I started playing acoustic gigs with a logtime friend. At the time I was playing my Ovation through a Peavey keyboard amp. Not wanting to put out the money for an acoustic amp (which I later ended up doing anyway) I bought this to help with my tone. It did a great job bringing out the tones in my guitar. It also has an incredible amount of effects built into it. I did not buy this at Newegg (I don't think they offered it when I bought the pedal).
Cons: Disabling the effects is a royal pain. There are two foot switches about 6 inches apart and the expression pedal. To bypass the effects you need to depress both foot switches at the same time. There is no easy way to do this. When you are erforming, the last thing you want is an effect that is near impossible to turn on and off.

Pros: The tuner is a very good tuner, and does exactly what it was meant to do. I use this tuner for shows and I'm never off tune with my band mates, and the bassist uses it sometimes when he intentionally "forgets" to bring his tuner.
Cons: The bass tuning can get off when you're tuning to a low key, but otherwise its perfect.
Other Thoughts: I love this tuner, and it's better than the silver one that Korg had before.
