Uh, for the price/features, it scored very well.

Had an hour to play with one yesterday.
I think for the money it is a very good radio.
I'm not real fond of touch screen operated gear, with that aside the radio works very well.

Thanks. This and other reviews seem to reach the same conclusion, that this radio is good value for the money, but it's not going to outperform the heavy hitters, and it does have its quirks. I think I will get one, as $1500 is about all I am comfortable coughing up at this point.

And by the way...
The radio decodes RTTY quite well.
According to one of the salesmen The IC-7300 will also decode PSK..
Don't know if it does CW but it wouldn't surprise me.

No CW decode. The RTTY/PSK decoder code has been reused from previous radios.
I do think it is a very nice radio, especially for the money. You can expect it to sell for $1300.00 USD or so within a few months. I'm still not really a fan of touchscreens though.

Our local HRO had several standing orders for the radio and managed to keep one for display. They go out as fast as they can get them. The going price here in the People's Republic of Kalifornia... $1,499.00 USD...
Add $120.00 (more or less) for sales tax and it's yours.
