Default What happened to the Samsung XL2370 ? Discontinued ?

Few months ago our local stores here carried the Samsung XL2370 slim LED LCD monitors, and I purchased 1 of these. Now I noticed nobody carries it, and instead carries the PX2370. I am not impressed with the new one, they are a step down to the XL2370 IMO, checking the specs also notice peak 250 cd/m2 compared to (some site reports a peak of 246cd/m2) and
344 cd/m2 measured (XL2370). - for the PX overall image wise/colour accuracy, they are dimmer and not as good compared to my XL2370. The contrast ratio also lower too, quite a disappointment compared to other older LCDs, I mean is Samsung cutting corners now ??? I guess I was lucky to purchase the XL2370.

Some might think the higher cd/m2 is overkill for the eyes, but better to have it higher, and be able to lower it and have a wide adjustment range depending on your room environment and lighting coming in.

I'm about to pull the trigger on one, based in large part on Samsung SyncMaster XL2370 review - PC Monitors

From what I heard Best Buy was clearing these out a couple of months ago for ~ $150 but I wasn't in the market at that time. Nuts but #%@* happens, eh!

It's a shame to see Samsung release a GREAT monitor one year and discontinue the XL2370 and every new monitor that replaced it sucks really bad. Why did they significantly dim the new monitor...every new revision they made after, same thing. The PX2370 is a very poor monitor, it looks ugly and the buttons are HIDDEN at the back, Samsung must have been drunk when designing this one. True that the XL2370 was a bit more expensive, but now Samsung is cutting corners to sell at lower price ... and it shows.
