For bedroom recording artists...

modleling is getting better every day. Hardware wise the Fractal audio stuff seems to be king of the hill, line6 HD stuff is an affordable alternative. I've heard wonderful stuff software wise. The podfarm stuff can sound great, TH2 Overloud, Acmebargig Shred.. There are many more. I think if you find the right workflow and model for your taste, it is possible to get superior results from the modelers as it eliminates the environmental hurdles of mic'ing an amp in a room etc. I don't thing a statement like "amp modelers sound fake" is viable anymore. If you are talking about a Johnson J-station, maybe... but the current modelers are quite impressive.
