If you search this site, you'll see some posts from Tom Barr about sumps. He uses them quite successfully. The secret to using sumps and CO2 injection is sealing off the sumps and limiting the splash, then they are not much worse than another filtration system and probably better than HOB's.

For 100 gallon for a planted tank, I would suggest even an XP4 would be overwhelmed. I'm using an FX5 and an Eheim 2028 and recently added a Koralia 2 into my 125 gallon and am considering upgrading my Eheim (mind you I have SA cichilds in that tank) because I am not getting sufficient filtration and CO2 dispersion/water movement.
