SRAM X-Gen Front Derailleur

The other day I seriously tweaked my front derailleur and, while it's still ridable, it's bent out of shape and I the chain rubs in different areas on different gears so I figured it was time to grab a new one. I took a big leap of faith and decided to order the new SRAM X-Gen from Nashbar (they had it on sale); it should be here on Monday.

That said, does anyone in here have experience using these? I like the SRAM lineup and will likely be going X.O all around once they come out with their trigger shifters (and once I decide to pony up the extra coin for a new shifting and brake system) but I'm still slightly leary about trying this out without knowing anyone who owns one.

If any of you guys have used this component, please drop some wisdom here regarding your experience, likes and dislikes. Thanks.

PWRDbyTRD has one.. I don't think he's had any problems with it, but as long as it shifts between gears consistently, does it really matter how nice it is?

By "nice" I mean, does is shift crisply? Has anyone had any problems with them? Are they bulky and clunky or are they sleek and smooth? This is what I mean by nice.

Anyone?
