The 996p2 was far from perfect when released. After firmware updates that changed just like all radios.I agree and since all of these fixes and a replacement radio that was sent to me the radio is still not perfect. I still hear a hum when the radio is in conversation which is still annoying. I just figured I was sold a bill of bad goods and have to live with my purchase at this point. I tend to go back to my BCD996P2 and BCT15X since those radios have no issues and I have never encountered any complaints on my end.
Just not sure how they got those radios right from the beginning and then with the BCD536HP and then the SDS-200 radios the quality control has gone south.
