Comparison of POD500X to FireHawk?

Just about to buy either the 500X or FH and wanting some thoughts on which is best. 

 

I love the idea of the iOS interface to FH and its flexibility, but I have been reading some comments about FH not being as well built as the 500x... Is this an issue to those of you that play live occasionally???

 

Thanks BP

Played a gig last night and it performed flawlessly! Lots of compliments on the sound out front. I ran mono 1/4" out to a 12" full range monitor and the mono XLR out to the main board. I've had mine since June and it has supported countless rehearsals and a handful of gigs with no reliability issues. Can't speak to the HD500X.

I've dropped mine off a stage, had it fall out of its case smack onto its face, and generally stomped all over it, and the biggest complaint is a slightly squeeky volume pedal (which you can't hear with any kind of volume). 

 

Oh, and the display isn't bright enough in direct sunlight, but in Ireland this generally isn't a recurring issue ;D
