Grant, let's tone this down, or better yet, let's all punt.  We each have 
our opinions....and none are probably any better than the other.  Like you, 
I have owned MANY top line radios over the 47 years I've been licensed.    I 
have received OUTSTANDING service from Icom in every instance I've had to 
call on them.  Most for upgrades.  I am not a member of a specific cult or 
following.  I just use the radios.  If you think that TT delivered what they 
promised on the Orion, that's simply great.  I, and obviously others,don't. 
I also have had the Orion and O II setting here side by side.  I opt for the 
Orion over the Orion II.  The screen was better on the O II, and the 
features didn't lock up like they do on the Orion at times, but I feel/felt 
the performance overall was better on the Orion.
