I've tried both. I did 1 and a half sessions of P90X (broke my middle finger part way through so I couldn't lift weights/do chin-ups). I am just started P90X2.
I quit Insanity. Its very cardio focused and very hard. I preferred the all-around approach of P90X.
I lost a lot of fat and put on a lot of muscle, but keep in mind that there is no "secret" to P90X - its just pushing and pulling weights and getting your heart rate up. There's no reason you can't build your own program and get the same results.
That said, if you're like me and need some structure in your life, I highly recommend P90X. Its only 12 weeks. You can do anything for 12 weeks. You will be in much better shape at the end.
