Fluval FX6

Has anyone had personal experience with the new fluval fx6 canister filter? Was looking at buying the fx5 but I seem the fx6 is out now and I can not find much about it besides the product details on various sites selling it.

Yeah I have heard very good things about the fx5 just curious if the fx6 is worth the extra money. I have a 125 gallon right now with 2 penguin 350 HOB on it now and looking for something that will handle it with out any issues.
