FX5 or Pro III filter?

I don't want to start a debate, but I want to hear from people who have owned these filters from the time they have first come out. Tell me which filter you have, how long it has been running, any problems you have had with it, and how clean it has kept your tank. I have been reading that the Eheim Pro III is better for biological filtration and the Fluval FX5 is better for mechanical filtration. I will have a heavily planted 75 gallon aquarium, so it sounds like the FX5 would be the better filter for me but I want to hear everyone's opinions.
