I really liked it when I was in high school and for much of college. I think it's way better than the DS-1 for example (which was my first distortion pedal) or the MT-2 ("Metal Zone"). Would I ever pick it over a boosted tube amp (or an unboosted tube amp, for that matter)? No. But it's good if you've only got, say, a solid state amp that has really crappy distortion (even with a clean boost).
You wont find much love for "distortion pedals" around here (overdrives are a diff story). For most of us, that stuff is what we wasted our $$ on that we earned from our first part time jobs because we didnt have the cash to get decent amps. Honestly, if you want decent tone on the cheap, buy a boss Katana 50watt instead.
