    Obviously you can. Other amps in this price range are Laney Linebacker LR20, VOX Pathfinder 15R, Line6 Spider IV 15w, Peavy Vypyr 15.
    Mustang I is a smart choice though.

    Just remember to keep a clean setting, eg. model: 65 twin reverb, gain:3-5, vol: 3-5, treble:5, bass:5, master:3. Do not use the distortion channels with external distortion, sounds real bad.

    if you do want to use an effects unit then get the roland....the clean sounds best in range and distortion also has some "oomph" in it...

    IMO, if ur just starting out on an electric like me, i'd suggest the mustang. nothing wrong with the cube, but the presets on the mustang are really helpful to a beginner. i played through a friend's microcube for almost a month before i bought the mustang and the fact that i had to set up the amp to a particular style from scratch before i started playing was a little off-putting. with the mustang, most of the presets are pretty genre specific, so if ur playing maiden or judas priest... dial in the british 80s preset and it gives you some hard-edged distortion. if you plan on playing some pearl jam or soundgarden... dial in the american 90s and ur good to go... (with some little tweaking here and there considering the type of guitar ur playing)
    but of course, i'm just a beginner and a lot of people would consider the cube for the exact same reason i found it off putting (it'll teach you to find your tone)..
    all this is considering ur a beginner and don't have a pedal or processor already.. :)

    @ Kavish, between Mustang 1 and Roland Cube XL, I had mustang 1 bought for around 100$ as Roland was around 200$ that time. Mustang was good for it's rate. Line6 series is also good. I've only heard someone playing on Roland (live) and was pretty impressed with it. Mustang came with a DVD which had further presets, which I never used though. But for the price of Mustang, it's an amazing piece. And believe me, these are starter series and you won't find much difference. Distortion isn't great with both.
