unbelievable bang for buck. two lexicon machines in one. dbx compression. delays, verbs. . . run in stereo or in dual mono. also can use it via usb so you dont eat processing power in your computer. . . . . AWESOME unit. my neighbor plays in a wedding band and actually STOPPED bringing his super high end pcm41 and 90something stuff to his gigs. . . though he'll never sell 'em. . . .
200 bucks!!!! if you run a pa, it is a no f*cking brainer. . .
fun on guitar too. . . .

I picked up one used in mint condition yesterday for $125.
It hasn't been racked or anything--very intuitive and sounds great just in my Mod50 effects loop.
Next up--try it out in the PA rack...

I plan to use it soley for the reverb and delay. In all probability, I will only use one channel. I just want a good spring reverb and between 300 and 400ms delay overall. That being said, I have heard the chorus and rotary are pretty cool too.
Mercury25, I know you said that you use it in the fx-loop of your Mod50. Have you or anyone else used it in line with other pieces? I plan to just link it between my Triaxis and 2:90. Will I be better served just to drop in to my Triaxis' fx-loop and be done with it? As I mentioned I don't plan on involving it with any midi switching just for reverb and delay. I know this is an inexpensive unit but it is just about all I can afford these days with the whole workers comp thing ya know? With the replies here so far and all of the other wonderful reviews I have read about it, I feel pretty confident that it will do all I am asking of it.
I prefer to have all my rack units, with the exception of the Triaxis, to be "set 'em and leave 'em" type processors (ie. reverb, delay, comp, eq, enhancer, and tuner) I like to have my flanger, phaser, trem, rotary, vibrato and lengthy delays (2) on the floor in stomp box pedals for easy switching on/off use. I find it easier this way given the jam band type stuff I play because I never know what is going to be needed at any given time.
Thanks for the help so far guys. I appreciate your responses.

Even though it has 99 presets available, I don't see any reason you can't set it and forget it.
I would definitely put it in the loop if you can--delay and reverb sound better to me there...

So I received the Lexicon MX200 this afternoon. I have to say that for the price I paid for this thing, I wasn't expecting much. I bought it from Musicians Friend as a blem item for $170.00. I don't have my entire rig here so I decided to just plug it into my Valve Junior to see what is was all about. Wow!! I am very pleasantly surprised to say the least. As I had mentioned, I was really only looking to use it as a reverb and a 300-400 ms delay. Well it took me about 5 minutes to dial in the perfect settings for that. Seeing how easy it was to get that channel dialed in, I decided to really get into this thing and see what it's got. So far, I have been able to get a killer rotary setting, a Run Like Hell delay setting, and a really nice lead delay. Maybe I'll use this for a lot more than I expected. Hey for $170.00 I have 4 killer patches and many more to come I'm sure. I usually pay that much for a single unit effects pedal. This thing is awesome. I can't wait to introduce it to my big rig tomorrow.
