Features: 

 

 

Few  - It doesn't get much simpler than this.

 

  • You can select 7 or 15 watts 
  • You have Volume, Tone, and Gain knobs.

 

Pros: 

Many! 

  • Low wattage means you can get power amp distortion at lower wattage and volume. Thus better tube tone. And what great tube tone it is. Characteristic Orange sound (VERY Dino) from warm clean, to pretty high gain, and everything in between.
  • The size makes it the perfect amp for an apartment where space is an issue. Throw it in the gig bag and carry it on your shoulder.
  • Versatility - I have used this amp at jams, at gigs, and to record with. It always does a great job.
Cons: 
  • No FX loop.
  • You need a cab.
  • If you play with a guitarist that's using 50w or 100w amps, you MAY have trouble keeping up if it turns to volume wars. If you're the only guitarist, the amp keeps up with drummers just fine with even a 1x12 cab -- unless you are trying for ear-splitting volume.
Sound Quality: 
5 (excellent)
Reliability: 
N/A
Customer Support: 
OK
Summary: 
Every Dino should own one of these. This has been my go-to amp since 2008. For recording or gigging, whether it's on its own, or part of a stereo rig, the amp has kicked ass. I love the portability, the tone, the simplicity.
