I have been using the X-Factor skin for over a year now, and it rocks.

The menus are very slick and designed in a way to combine sub-categories of functions. This reduces the clutter and makes navigation far easier (you don't have one very long scroll list, just 5 categories with smaller scroll lists under each category). Configuration requires some fiddling, because there any possible combination of menus is configurable. Some people might see the slightly more complex configuration a negative aspect, but it gives massive flexibility, which is what I want from my HTPC.

It provides good support for all the main plugins along with most of the lesser known ones, and support from Cul8er is excellent.

With the inclusion of the excellent FanArt Handler to provide downloaded fan-art background (also written by Cul8er) it provides a very impressive and fluid look.

I would highly recommend this skin if you want a very professional and hugely configurable skin.
