I just went from my X (running Vortex) to the Maxx a couple weeks ago. I would not have switched, but needed a world phone. Haven't rooted yet, may wait for ICS before I root.
It is large, but still fits in my front pocket fine (I don't like holsters)
I have the otterbox commuter and it works well without adding much bulk (My X never had a case)
Otherwise, its a bigger screen, better screen, battery life is better (and I had the extended battery for the X), and everything I have installed so far works great. Even installed colornote and restored from the datacard backup off of the X.
There are a few things I had on the rooted X that I have not found yet duplicated on the Maxx, but I haven't searched hard for them and I'm sure the devs will make it possible.
I'm liking the maxx more and more. I'm officially sold on it, now just need to find the best deal. The local VW shop (aurhorized retailer) wants 299.00 for it....bleh.
Side question - I use Titanium backup and I assume it stores those on the removable card? I am running some older versions of software as I didn't like the upgrade version. If I install fresh on the maxx...can I 'restore' the older version from the card after?
I had a Droid X and jumped from that to the Pro when it came out for the keyboard. Switched from the Pro to the Razr in November and then to the MAXX in March, have not looked back since. Do it you will love this phone.
Go into a Corporate store and the Maxx is $199 right now.

You can absolutely root the Maxx, I just did on Saturday, and it was SO easy! I remember how much work it was to root my DInc and I hated it, lol. A few of the pre-installed apps you will be able to just uninstall, but the others will require freezing.
Just wanted to say like the other GN (Grand National) symbol as your avatar. A friend had one in high school.
Thanks : - ) I have an 87
So did he, stolen 3 times. Third was the last...
Just like to say the car had balls!
Definitely don't regret giving my X up. VZW gave me $33 for it on trade-in.
If the battery doesn't amaze you, the RAM and Dual Core will. This thing runs apps that struggled on my X (angry birds space is one that comes to mind).
Also if you have the Motorola X Car Dock, it can be modded to fit the Razr
