I've never used one but I'm tempted to just grab it at that price. Anyone have any experience with it?
You might have to be the one to get some experience and report back. I had not heard of it before now.
Personally I always thought I would rather go for something with mic option also... if I were to need a compact 1-in audio device. Like this:

The reviews seem OK, it's probably a "good enough for the price" kind of deal.
A damn sight cheaper than a Sonic Port VX. While I love all the extra options the VX provides (condenser mic, field mic, stereo outs, headphone out to bypass the built-in headphone jack), the only extra feature I use is the headphone out for mixing/mastering with phones.
If I didn't already have the VX, I'd be tempted to grab this alternative for 3 Alex Hamiltons
Sez $79 now.
Too bad, it would have been a cheap alternative for my iRig Pro if I replace my phone with one that no longer has a headphone jack.
Interesting video, thanks for posting it. No great differences in my opinion. I have the Line 6 Sonic Port. If I had to chose from the three, I would probably pick the Apogee, perhaps the most natural sounding. But not by far to my ears.
