I bought a Vertex Standard VX 1700 back when they came out in 2006-07. It is a very nice radio with very good specifications that are better than most "Ham" rigs. These radios are mostly sold to third-world users, with a few making it into the USA. This being said, they are simple yet very good units. I wouldn't hesitate to buy another one if I needed one. Strangely enough, mine was made in Japan. However the microphone was made in China as are the ones on several of my other Yaesu-type radios.
Just my 2c. If you would like to know anything else about these units or set up a schedule to talk to me on HF
to see what one sounds like, I'd be happy to accommodate.
