Sound quality is what impressed most of the reviewers. The general theme of what they are saying is that the Eventide Space Reverb simply sounds great. Versatility also got a lot of thumbs up, especially from more experienced users who want precision control over the reverb effect. Interestingly, even non-guitarists were impressed by the pedal's sound quality, including musicians who are into ambient style music, reporting that they were able to conjure inspiring and unique soundscapes.
There were some who raised concern about the complexity of the interface and overall learning curve. A few reviewers complained about the quality of the knobs considering the price, and speaking of price tag, some users would've given the pedal a higher rating if the price was a bit lower.
