    i use for several years: pdf-x/1a for publishing from coreldraw/freehand and pdf-x/4 for adobe products.
    it very rarely fails (i'm working in major typography with over 1000 artworks per day).

    pdfx-1a is a safe solution for offset printing

    pdfx-1a is a safe solution for offset printing. You can export from Indesign or you can use Adobe Distiller to make your pdf file and it will be ready for printing.

    We have been using the PDF/X-1a:2001 as our standard for several years without problems.

    I think it depend of the RIP capacity. If you use a CPSI RIP you can use Pdfx-1a. If you have an RIP APPE v2 or v2.5 you can use Pdfx-4.
    In my opinion Pdfx-1a is more safe than the other (because without transparency).

    I use pdf x3 and never had problems with it, you can print from indesign or illustrator, using PostScript printer, adobe pdf as ppd.

    In fact we ask PDF-X1a, but it doesn't matter that much if they send another version

    This is an issue

    PDF/X3 can cause problems when sent to print. Since all the transparencies are already flattened it will rasterize any type or vector objects that are near a drop shadow when sent to rip. Text and vector objects need to trap and it looks bad when part of a line traps and the rest knocks out because its rasterized

    Which to choose

    Always stick with the most widely compatible one is my rule. Unless you can hash out exactly what you want between both/all parties and can be more specific, keep it as simple as possible.

    I alway use PDF X3 and no problem.
    Most of the time it's not PDF X3 the problem ; it's the RIP.
