I already said that if you don't want to use the deep functionality of the amp, it works fine! That's what you are saying too. It's a good sounding amp. I have played several gigs with it. If I were broke, not a gearhead guy, or just not that particular, I would be ok with using it like that. But it HAS much more capability - 8 presets, 50+ Effects, and many, many more amp models available when you do a deeper dive. THAT functionality is not very useful live, or even in rehearsals, because you can't touch even 10% of what the amp can do from the top panel.
