Looking and doing some shopping on my favorite filters and I've noticed something. Anybody else getting the feel that the old 2217 is about to be replaced? I'm seeing some new items that seems to be replacements for the "Classic 2213,2215,2217" lineup. I'm also seeing some closeout pricing. Just wondering if the group has any input on the thought of 2217 going away.

A local shop offered to order in one for $144. I don't normally expect that much off at LFS.

That is what makes me wonder if they are beginning to phase out the old stock with the new model coming out with media trays. Ehiem seems to be quite sensitive to that as it is one of the few common complaints on the "classic" line. Now it has put a doubt in my mind whether I should go for another 2217 or go for the new with the media trays and the other small things they have improved. I guess that is reason enough to defer the spending.
