Review: I bought my X Fire back in 2000 & have used it ever since. It's a good mask, regardless of any other reviews. I've played probably every type of paintball game ever imagined (I think~) in every type of weather you could imagine (eh, Ohio gets some really extreme weather 24/7/365) and the mask always held up. It has a full field of vision comparable to other masks within it's price range and year of release
And the coolest feature I've found is foam spacers behind the ears, which increases the spacing between your ears and the mask. This space allows for better hearing during game play. One bad thing is that it's prone to frequent and overwhelming fog (although I never did install the anti-fog insert, maybe that's the problem) By now, they've probably flooded the market with other hundreds of new masks, but I recommend the X Fire for any collection, casual or pro.
Conclusion: BUY IT! If you can find another mask for the cost, go for it. But if you come across a decent X Fire for a decent price, see my previous statement.....
