I can vouch for the Ocelot with X10 and IR. I have one in my home handling about 40 X10 switches and plug-in controllers. I use time-of-day, sunrise/sunset and x10 line commands in various situations along with some logic. I also have one in my elderly mother-in-laws home to turn on/off the TV and set various channels based on time of day.
A nice product, low cost and relatively easy to program.

If you can afford to have someone put in a Crestron system, why would you use X10/Insteon, and not something nicer?
From what i've heard Insteon works pretty well considering... Unforutanetly, since I am the crestron installer, I was simply trying to consider ways to incorporate into my personal system at the lowest cost. I'm not paying tons of money to have someone install the system. It's already there.
But reading the comments, I'll just probably hold off and implement a Radio Ra solution.
I was able to figure out the x10 protocol and I can now send x10 lighting commands via an insteon rs232 interface and crestron processor. It's a little unreliable because of the way the commands hva to be sent and the way I programmed it. It needs work but it can be done.
