Well I got my GT-100 and I am very pleased with it so far it is very easy to use and sounds great. In reference to the posts saying that the sound quality of the amp models haven't improved I suggest doing a side by side comparison with other choice gear. I bought a POD HD500 and returned it due to t he lack of expression control but preferred the amp models to the Roland COSM amps at the time. I feel that Roland has now brought that quality to compete with Line 6. this is my opinion you need to use your ear to decide. I was happy with the COSM amps in my VG and GR but when I herd this thing I was blown away.

This was reviewed by Guitar Player magazine in the November issue, I think, as part of a comparison of several multi-effects units.

I noticed that it has an external effects send/return that can be moved to different places in the signal chain. That's high up on my wish list for VG. Glad to see that Roland agrees it's a good idea. I think it stores levels for the send, and the return, in a patch, too.

I hear it's not a stereo send/return, but at least it's there. My VG-99 is awesome. It would be ten times awesomer if I could insert other effects, and choose the place in the chain where to insert them.

I like that they included a lot of knobs on it, too.

I hear the newer GT-100's are shipping with firmware version 1.05,
the current downloadable one is 1.04.

I also hear that some users want to load 1.04 in as the 1.05 version has even more bugs.
c'mon Roland what is going on?

Still not even a Windows 8 driver yet,
they seem to have left this product off the compatablity list all together.
Not that i am intending to upgrade to Windows 8 yet.

Did check out office 2013 though, the look seems reminicent of Windows for 286 (circa 1988).

The visual aspect of the windows 8 desktop (not the metro thing) strikes me as a bit retro, or at least lacking eye candy.
