Excellent  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
This is my first HT since I purchased my venerable VX-5. What an upgrade! I like the size of the screen and the simplicity of programming. The excellent menu structure makes up for the lack of keys.

My next radio will be the 51. I don't mind having only 70cm as the DStar repeaters in my area are mostly 70cm. Also, I do most of my DStar through a hotspot connected to my computer over 70cm.

I didn't think I'd like a plastic case over the metal VX-5. However, it was pretty cold today and the 31 plastic case was much more comfortable to hold than the cold metal case!

The GPS amazingly locks-on indoors.

I really don't have anything negative to write about this excellent radio after my first month of use. 
Product is in production.
