I am in the same boat as you, although I havent tried CM7 I have been on eclipse, which for me has been blazing fast and amazing except for a few small bugs in 2.1 like the video camera, and gallery.
I just, I have used CM7 on other phones and I dont see why it is so popular, seems bloated to me, I like my smart phones dumb and simple to keep them fast and ready. It seems all the good mods are losing support as people are leaving the DX2 phone.
What bug are you encountering with the video and gallery?
