I am looking at buying one if these units and would like some feedback on someone who has actually used both devices. Cons/pros on both. Thanks

This will just be used for home.
I received a POD X3 so I'm still messing with it, but I'ev been very impressed. It's not hard to make it sound decent pretty quickly and if you have a good understanding of EQing you can get some really impressive tones out of it.

The large library of artist's tones online is a nice touch too, since most of the preloaded presets are pretty crap.
