Well, won't go into rcvr specs you can look those up. I have played with the 1200 for a while and id does require some learning or manual reading. Seems basically pretty good. A couple of nits:
1. With the bands were back lit keys. The legends are small and a bit difficult to read if you don't have the room lighting right on the front panel.
2. The display is okay but to change some settings (i.e. Vox On/Off, etc.) you have to navigate back and forth from the scope, select up or down, and then get on the setting, hit select to turn the function off/on, etc. Then back to scope display or whatever. To me that seems awkward to say the least.

But for performance, I think it is pretty good, but will re-state you have to play with it a lot to get a feel of short cuts and settings you want when operating. 
Product is in production.
