2010 Trek Fuel EX 5?

Hello. Looking to get back to riding after a 2 year period, and looking for an entry lvl full suspension bike with a budget under $1400. Not familiar with all the new tech, so I went to a trusted LBS which recommended and can order this Trek Fuel EX 5 for $1300 (MSRP $1600).

Anyone have any experience with this model? I can't really find much on performancebike, jensonusa, or pricepoint, and don't want used bikes. Only alternative I see is a GT I-Drive 5 on performance, but doesn't have my size.

My brother has an '08 EX 5 and he loves it. Nothing bad that I have heard yet.
