Summary: After 2-1/2 years of use, including lots of DX'ing and many contest efforts on both CW and SSB, I'm very pleased with the performance of the transceiver. No mod required and you can even adjust the keying rise/fall time. There are other nice new features, but I'll discuss them below in appropriate sections of this page. First, I must mention that the FT-2000 I have today is quite a bit different than the FT-2000 I bought in 2006. Because its firmware has been upgraded several times and this new firmware has significantly improved some of the features in the radio.
The roofing filters and variable bandwidth DSP circuits have worked well. Great receiver performance in crowded contest environments. For example, the noise blanker that initially seemed ineffective is now the best I've ever heard. New features, like the new CW peaking mode with the Contour control, have been added.
The biggest change for me is not having to select filter bandwidths.
It performs well, looks great, and like a well-designed mobile phone or other piece of electronics, it's a pleasure to operate. For me, or anyone who records cw QSO's using this audio output jack, this is a serious problem because only one side of the QSO will be recorded. If you want to find out when your FT-2000 was built, here is some information provided by Bill, N5TU: The first digit in a Yaesu serial number indicates the year of manufacture.This page is a collection of user submitted information on radio programming cables.
