The Peavey Vypyr? I would like to know if anyone out here has it, because I kinda need someone to review it for me, or give me a really good site that I could find honest reviews about it at? Thanks for your help!!
Ultimate Guitar is where I go for guitar gear reviews:

Here is a link to Harmony Central. You can read the reviews of those amps by folks who have actually used them.
My favorite amps have always been Fenders. I also like some of the Vox amps. Not in that price range, but I am quite fond of Fender tube amps. Bandmaster and Deluxe. Also, the Vox AC 30 is a great amp. For the size you need, not sure which Vox would fit that need. There are some all right smaller Vox good practices amps, but in that size range, I just am not sure. You might consider looking at some of the reviews. In the Fender line, the Frontman is about as good as you will get within that size without popping out the bucks for an older tube amp.
Line 6 is a popular amp with the younger generation because of the built in effects. You may want to look at some of the reviews on it.
Of those few amps you have listed, my own preference would be the Fender Frontman 212R. Nice spring reverb. For solid state, it sounds good. I have always had good luck with Fender amps. I go back with them to 1968.
