FWIW, I've had a G90 for exactly a year. The first one developed a display fault after a couple of months, and the vendor promptly took care of getting me a new rig. It was my sole rig for about 6 months during which time I had a lot of fun with it. 20W goes a long way, and the receive is quite impressive too. Since I got a 7300 I use the Xiegu less, mostly for outdoors stuff now. It acquits itself very well with pretty much whatever antenna I connect to it. It's a rig you can sling in a bag with a battery and a length of wire - and just get out there and make QSOs. There've been a few firmware updates that have ironed out a lot of the weirdnesses - it does now have RIT and RF gain, the AGC and noise blanker work tolerably well. I think it's well worth the financial outlay. And I'd sure miss it if I didn't have it.
