Just wondering how many out there are using the TS 2000 rig for work on CW and how the new units fare?

Seems like there is a lot of grumbling about intermod and issues with CW in general.  


I don't care much about SSB or VHF/UHF - just CW performance on 160-20 meters.  


Thanks!

I've been satisfied with mine.  I've worked several contests (note I'm only a casual participant).  It does pay off to know how to use the filtering, which is very effective.

I exclusively use my TS2K for CW.  Nothing but net my friend!  Thumbs up and 73s.

Also use my TS2000 for CW and am very happy with it. In fact, I have never used it for phone.

I've had my TS2000 for a couple of months now, and I'm satisfied with its performance on CW.  For comparison purposes in my shack, I also have an Elecraft K2 and an Icom IC746.  The K2 is by far the easiest to listen to for extended periods of time.  I don't contest, but I participate in Field Day as a CW op, and the K2 goes with me every FD.  The IC746 is pretty close to the TS2000, but it is really nice to be able to adjust the IF DSP filtering on the fly with the TS2000.  Overall, the TS2000 is a good CW rig, and for the money, almost impossible to beat.
