2020/wheel vs MGN12 for x-axis

In my previous post I seek for y-axis solution advise. Now my question on the x-axis for an i3 style DIY printer :-)
I am in the early idea finding stage of this project.

What is your opinion on on 2020+wheel solution (https://cdn.thingiverse.com/renders/cb/0d/24/4c/18/78d7be079f0c2406a17c52c294d40b7a_preview_featured.jpg) vs a MGN12 mounted on a 2020 extrution (or something similar).

I like linear guides over the wheels-in-slots type design. In SoM I used a single linear guide screwed to an aluminum tube, but the tube may not be entirely necessary- I didn't use a tube in UMMD, just a 24 x 8mm linear guide. The tube did make mounting the linear guide easier in SoM.
