Not reliable  Time owned: more than 12 months
I bought one on sale and loved it, great audio out. So, I bought 2 more, one for the car, truck and shack. After very little use of any of them, I am down to one working. A nearby friend bought 2 and he is down to one. He had a guy in the area with a great repair track record look at it and he said it was nothing he wanted to work on.

My operation habits are mostly listening to the guys in the local dx club. I don't xmit much but enjoy the conversations. My rigs have had very little use.

Don't get sucked in by the 75watts as the radio gets incredibly hot and no way it could sustain those temperatures for long.

It would be nice if some other reviewers would come back over time and let us know how their rigs are working out?
