Ehh....  Time owned: 6 to 12 months
I sent in my FT-857 which had an intermittent receive issue. While the rep was rather prompt in returning emails all the tech did was slap in a couple new ceramic filters in the radio and send it back. It still had the issue. I emailed the same rep indicating the issue had not been resolved and the reply was "the tech tested it and it functioned properly."

Well, since I still had the issue I sent it off to Cal at Hamrepair.com. EXCELLENT service, and all it turned out to be was some cold solder joints. Got it back and no more problems. Radio functions like new.

Doubt I'll purchase another Yaesu, just don't want to put up with service should I need it with another radio. Too bad. 
Product is in production.
