I have two of those and there is nothing that beats it for the money. I usually keep it in the longer delays and it sounds fine. Using the time knob and static source you can dial up tones and create some pretty cool digital soundscapes, Ableton Live-y but sounding better.
Good Points: Feature/price, unbeatable
Bad Points: Hold function is useless and since the switch is plastic and not very good you can't really use it fast enough to create anything interesting, plus it broke on one of my pedal.

i wanted a second delay pedal for my setup on the cheap and this is what i got. it is adequate, no better, and worth the price, which was $20 including shipping.
I have used it exclusively in a mixer feedback chain. It works ok for this application. The biggest problem with using it this way is that the AD/DA conversion introduces a tiny delay which has the tendency to produce a boring high-pitched whine. There are two solutions to this problem: turn level (which is actually dry/wet) to full, which avoids the flanging entirely, or use eq/filters to attenuate the whine.
other than that, this gives a very clear digital delay sound, up to 1.3 seconds
stereo mode introduces some stereo wideness which is nice.
You can get some really nice glitchy tones out of it by turning the delay time to small small amounts with the feedback up. One thing you notice if you do this is that the delay time does not vary continuously. there are definite steps, which seem to increase delay time by a fixed amount. This isn't necessarily bad, it means you can back and forth from 1 pitch to another. It also means that you can't necessarily match a pitch from somewhere else, and sweeping the delay time knob slowly doesn't sound very natural.
Good Points: cheap
relatively wide frequency response
1.3 seconds of delay
Bad Points: short hold time
flanging effect pronounced in feedback loop
funky behavior with external power
stepping of delay times
not true bypass

This pedal has seven modes. Three delay lengths in both mono and stereo, as well as a hold. The delay time is very short, so the hold is only good for glitchy type stuff, like the reviewer below said. However, the hold mode broke on both units I had (yes, I had two). It's too bad, because it's that glitchy stuff I wanted it for. The shortest delay time is a workable substitute with the feedback turned all the way up. Feeds back longer than my Boss DSD 2.
Anyway, the longer delay modes are uninspiring, and it doesn't pitch change when turning the delay time knob, so the only thing you could possibly get is stuttering with the short delay times.
Good Points: Stuttering
Bad Points: Breaks!
No pitch changing

This is a nice pedal for its price.
With short delay times it can make fast oscillating delay sounds.
The sound is very bright and harsh.
The longer delay times are decent and you can make some nice rythms
Theres 3 different modes of delay time and a hold function.
The maximum delay time is only 1.3 seconds long so hold is quite
It has mono in and stereo out. It really could use stereo in so it
could be used as a feedback loop.
When turning it on there a short pause wich is quite annoying.
Overall i had a lot of fun with this pedal but i did replace it with
a better delay.
Good Points: Price
Short delay times sound very nice
