The only drawback is that the power switch is on the back, not in the front. I have it installed in an enclosed portable rack and getting to the power switch is next to impossible. So I took a star away for that. If you are not mounting this or if it will be in an open rack it won't be an issue for you.
I asked a vendor and the manufacturer to explain the difference between the discontinued XL and this, the XS. The most distinctive technical change is a vague "improved algorithms" for signal processing. The panels are different, so there's the cosmetics.
