Does it give good quality reverb at appropiate sample frequencies etc.?
Is it worth, say £10?
I know there are better things to get obviously, but I'm on a budget here, and some reverb system would be good.

Oo-er...I remember anything by Realistic being pretty dodgy.
As mentioned - no point in buying external h/w reverb unless you either:
A) want a specific character of sound, or
B) Spend an awful lot more money than that.
Considering SIR is free, and you can get hold of some damn good quality 24bit impulse of Lexicons and Eventides and even TC(should you like that sort of thing, although I can't think why anyone does ) then there's no point spending even a tenner on h/w. SIR can be limiting if your PC spec is not brilliant, but even then, you can work around it by rendering to audio instead of running it live.
I would maybe say, OK it's worth spending on some older h/w multiFX units that happen to make reverb simply because some of the multiFX have character. But purely for the reverb? Nah. Even something like the reverb FX thrown in with Cubase are probably several times better than that Realistic thing.
If you come across some old analogue flanger or phaser etc, then definitely...if you can get something like that for a tenner, then bite the vendor's hand off quickly. But old analogue reverb......shudder
