very good  Time owned: more than 12 months
I really love this rig. I definitely recommend it to technicians.

The overall performance of mine is VERY GOOD.
I spent a lot of time to fix it and I have learn a lot.

After extensive comparison with my other equipment available only the TEN TEC Corsair stands a bit up. FT857/TS180S/FT101ZD stand definitely down.

pros:
-excellent receiver with strong IMD characteristic and excellent SSB/CW filters
- easiness of maintenance
- full internet support (documentation and atlas groups; TKS!)
- high power output (200W)
- elegant simple/effective design
- smooth QSK

cons:
- accurate alignment is needed and sometime its cumbersome because of interdependence of some settings
- IF board and preselector need two minor mods to cure TX instability
- a bit slow and popping AF AGC
- ALC is not (so?) effective
- sensibility is a bit low on 15 and 10 mt. (but only with less than an average antenna)
- audio preamplifier after 2nd DBM is a bit noisy

wish list:
- pass band tuning
- dedicated CW audio filter
