don't knock off final cut x right away without assessing the pros of it, have a read:
i work on premiere pro, fcp7 and fcpx and i gotta say each one has it's pros and cons. the best part of x for me is the organization of my files and how i can view them while dragging the cursor over each shot. makes it a lot easier to find your shots and simple adjustments on audio are far quicker. for most people's color grading needs it also has great adjustments that are easy to use and are effective.
i definitely see some things in x that i'd like to see in other programs. it's worth a shot and it's fairly inexpensive. there's also updates pretty often as the program grows.
