Like what the title said, i was thinking of buying a POD X3 as part of my rig for demo recordings (i've heard a lot about the X3 and the POD HD 500 is beyond my reach, budget-wise). Last week, i finally spotted the "kidney bean" model languishing in the bargain corner of a music store near my school. Upon asking about the said X3, the guy managing the store told me that the damned thing us defective. It doesn't turn on. I just want to ask if anyone had an X3 with a defect similar to the one i encountered and if there's a good chance i can have an out-of warranty X3 repaired by someone who can repair multi-effects. i need some advice before i grab my wallet and buy what turned out to be and irreparable multi effects unit.
