I was considering all of the possibilities mentioned above when I found my FT-847 for sale on QRZ. Prior to that, I'd had a borrowed 847 so getting the same radio for myself took away the learning curve. The newest versions of the 847 are about 10 years old now so they are a good buy when they come on the market. Patience is a virtue that also has benefits for your wallet.
If I were absolutely set on a new all-band/all-mode radio for strictly home use, I'd probably tend toward the Kenwood in the B model for total computer control.
I too had looked very seriously at a FT-847 a couple of years ago and got all the way up to finding one that was my pick to buy and then I did some last minute research and found that for all practicality, replacement finals in the FT-847 are non-existant and reportedly unobtainable from any source - unless your real lucky and find some place that just happens to have some new old stock available. For that reason and only that reason, I decided *reluctantly* to go a different route and obtained a TS-2000/X rig. Knowing my luck, I would have bought a used FT-847 on Monday only to have the finals fail on Friday, leaving me with a nice looking paperweight
Since the target rig was to replace a kludged 6M setup with a more stable configuration, the TS-2000/X did that just fine and the price was VERY acceptable to me. Someday if I happen to have the means, I would like to do a A/B test between a FT-847 and my TS-2000/X just to authenticate the reports of the FT-847 being a much better radio than the TS-2000. It might be (and probably is) but I know I do like Kenwoods, always have and hopefully always will.
