    I have a Uniden in a drwaer somewhere right now. It worked okay during it's era, but I would not buy one today, the way the threats are improving their capability. I would honestly buy a COBRA 1ST!!! Check this out and see the comparisons.

    You know I always have been a believer buy someting good buy it once. Either buy the RX65 or the Valentine One. Both choices are winners. Both have their own distinct features. BOTH are EXCELLENT performers

    That is I would by a Cobra before I buy a Uniden. I'm moving up in the big leagues.

    Default Uniden

    Uniden was banned in the USA from selling their units as they did not comply with the July 19, 2002 FCC requirement on leakage

    Well, that's good enough reason not to buy one.

    Here is how good they did in the 2000 SML test.



    Go here for some more radar detectors that were tested by SML in 2000:

    I can tell you the one I have performed okay while it worked. Detection range was not all that great and it did not have LIDAR detection capability. After about a year or 2 it just quit. No reason. Fuse was good, cord was good, but it just quit. I think the electronics could not handle the heat build-up while left in the car on a 75f day.

    When I go home this weekend I'll get the model # and all that info. Might even take a couple digi-pix of it. It's a brick.
