Compact TriBander  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I have just replaced my 25+ year old Diamond X50 with a VX1000. Mounted at about 6m on my roof, the SWR is low on 6 and 2m (<1.3:1) but a little higher in the middle of 70cm.

Early days, but seems to receive pretty much as well as the X50 on 2 and 70 FM and working fine into mainland Europe on 6m JT65.

Good Antenna  Time owned: more than 12 months
The vx-1000 is now installed about one year on the roof and it's working fine on all bands with no radials.

Not a tribander  Time owned: 6 to 12 months
I bought VX-1000 about one year ago. The assembling work was easy; it took only half an hour. My first VX-1000 had high SWR (>3.0) on 144MHz. I did not see any resonant point in the band. I sent it back to Diamond and received a new one. The new one has slightly better SWR, but still greater than 2.0. It works nicely on 50 and 430MHz. This is not a tribander but a dualbander.
