The difference of performance beetween the H220 and the H220x will not be much, right?
Should i pick a H220? Or wait for the H220x?
imo wait h220x has better expandability options in the future
both have the same pump, although the new one may have a higher rpm cap ( up to 4500rpm ) atm little is known about it
so 1 review overtakes 3 ?

not true, depending on the type of way you put it in your loop,
in parallel is a poor choice (** please see below ) , although it adds flow rate (gph/lpm) if you loose a pump it can create a mini loop bypassing your main loop ( water takes the path of least resistance which in most cases, assuming pump "a" and "b" and pump "a" dies water will leave pump "b" discharge flow through pump "a" discharge and exit pump "a" intake and flow back to pump "b" intake )
** unless of course you put a one way valve ( aka a check valve ) in
in series pumps add head pressure as seen hereSource

The 35X was my favorite pump over the last year due to its power, efficiency, and PWM smart/accuracy capabilities, Swiftech has once again taken something great and made it better. The 35X2 builds upon the same technology packaging two motors in one which gives the package much more pumping power range. It also allows the same amount of pumping power as one 35X at half the speed which does also provide some noise benefits at like pumping power levels over a single pump. I just found my new favorite pump or is that “Pumps”..
and if one pump dies, then you have a ( or several ) backups
