Which floor modeler for me?

Will use it mainly running into a clean DRRI, though the ability to run direct would be nice too. Depending on what this is, it may be just a practice tool, or it might replace my pedalboard all together.

My needs, in priority order:
1. Ease of Use - I don't want to spend hours setting up patches.
2. Quality sound of stomp models, including ODs and Distortions.
3. Need to be able to run a few effects at a time, minimally.
4. Amp Models would be great, along with the ability to go direct.
5. A looper would be awesome too.
6. Price is somewhat irrelevent, but lets say $300 or under (used or new)

What do you recommend?

Sounds like the Zoom G3\G5 or the new Digitech RP360 would be a good fit

I would also check out the new Amplifire and the POD HD500 (closer to $500-600)

You can get a used Pod HD500 for $300 if you look carefully (saw one for $250 a few weeks ago). It has everything you requested, but they aren't the most use friendly, unless you hook it up to a computer and use the free software. Then they are the easiest of the floor modelers to use IMO.

Does the HD500 have a looper?

BOSS ME-70 and new ME-80 fit into that category as well.

I think that an HD 500 or RP 1000, used, would each work well. RP 1000 seems easier to use, but once you really learn, either will be pretty quick to get going what you want going.
