I have the XP3, recently actually, so not a lot of time with it. It is far better than than the 'no name' filter it replaced though. No leaks and such, the only thing I don't like is how much louder it is over the cheap-o one, but it has quite a bit higher flow.
Not the same as the XP2 of course, but they're all built in the same fashion. The XP2 just has 2 baskets instead of 3. I run planted tanks, so in all honesty I could fit all my media into just the two baskets if I had to, and that's with my 125g tank. That's because all I use is pre-filter media, sponges, and pads. I don't use carbon or any of those other 'chemical' style medias.
