I owned several XL models, including the DSi model, and while the bigger screens where nice, The added weight was not. So once the N3DS standard model came out here, I gave up the XL and love the standard size.
That being said, I got to try the 2DS XL a few months ago at a promotion at GS, and I loved it. Larger screens, with a very light weight system. I do use my 3D pretty regularly, so I wouldn't give that up personally, but if a 2DS XL model comes out with a theme I like, I would get one.
I recently added CFW to my 3DS, so it would be nice to have another system handy when I would like the bigger screen option, but it's not a "must" for anyone, unless you have problems with the current system you may be using. Then it may be an option, but I personally thought it was great. I would for sure take it over the N3DS XL, no question about it.
I replaced my beat up new 3ds xl with the new 2ds xl and im very happy with it. I dont care for 3d, and so far the placement of the speakers hasnt bothered me at all as they sound pretty loud anyway lol
