Yes, I must say.. the XCM chrome faceplates are absolutely gorgeous.. I love mine
I personally like the translucent Xtender ones as well (So far I've had a red, a blue, and a green on mine).. They look a lot better in person than they do from pictures and while they might not suit everyone's taste, I personally like em. I haven't seen any m$ or other 3rd party faceplates that catch my fancy (other than the few specialty ones tehy made...), though I definitely need to get a custom airbrushed one made up at some point.
In any event, I like the idea of being able to change the whole identity of my console by just swapping out the faceplate. Granted, it is only the front.. but that's also the only part I ever see. Just my 2¢
