   I'd considered the 2720, but when I was doing some investigation, 
there are reports that way too many of them have problems with blown 
finals, and switch issues - much more so than other rigs.  Whereas with 
the V7a, usually you only need to worry about the display degrading in a 
more gradual fashion.  ;-)
