Cannikin hijacked the X3 thread for six weeks including going on and on about how unhappy he was for two weeks after he supposedly returned it for a full refund. You cannot solve his issues by discussing the X3 or the X5. You and I know they are solid devices. Cannikin is a time suck at best. Save your time, ignore him.
Yes, please just ignore me. After all, I'm the only person who has ever had or will ever have a less than amazing experience with this device, so there must be something wrong with me, not the player, right? Clearly I'm just imagining the problems I encounter and if I just stopped believing they exist, then I will have the same flawless experience with this "solid device" like everyone else.
I've learned that it is inevitable that if you report a problem with a piece of hardware here, someone will eventually come along and negate your claims and suggest that by reporting such problems,you are being a hallucinatory malcontent. We have once again arrived at that point.
