If you plan on getting custom tunes, it's cheaper in the end to go with the X-3, once you try a custom tune you'll almost never use a canned tune again. If you don't want to shell out the extra $50 for the X-3 and need to get a tuner then you can go with the SF that holds canned and custom, and worry about getting custom tunes later. But if you go with the SF and get custom tunes later, it will cost you more in the long run.
IMO, the canned tunes are OK, but like I said, once you try custom tunes you'll almost never want to use canned tune.
