Jeff,
That's commonly referred to as an X3 mill. There are several members here that have them, and the SX3 variant.
Haven't heard anything bad about them. You might want to do a search, there are several threads about dealing with any issues and mods. The members that have them seem to be quite please with them. Much sturdier than an X2, and better fit and finish.

Here are some threads I picked up.

Jeff,
I've owned the X3 for over a year. I use it a lot. Ask away if you have anything specific.

Cheers,
Phil
