I had one for a short time. I thought it was the best sounding distortion pedal I have ever had. My problem with dirt pedals are that you need to have your amp at certian volumes for them to sound really good and natural. Thats why I have always just cranked my amp & used an attenuator. If I'm going to have to bring the volume up anyway, I might as well just use the real deal (cranked amps). I have never had much luck with dirt pedals, but the Box of Rock sounded good at lower volume levels (unlike Fulltone, Boss, Ibanez & countless others I have tried).

I like the sound but hated the physical layout of the small box turned sideways. It makes for a small target trying to do guitar/vocals and the pedal dance. The switches are pretty close to the adjustment knobs. Good sounding pedal though.

Good sounding pedal. I like my OCD a bit better though. Lots of thick mids. It does a very good representation of the Marshall it was modeled after.
The vexter is under $200.
The extra boost is nice for solos.

I had one, but it just had too much bass, at least with my setup (which was a tele into a Genz Benz Black Pearl). The BOR added too much bass and got muddy fast... however, I wasn't feeding it into a clean amp, I always play my amps slightly driven, then add boosts/ODs on top of that. Wasn't working for me at all. And with my new RxJR, with all the bass it has on tap, no way would it have worlked (for me)...
