Awesome,impressive and FUN receiver- BUT- read this before you buy!

  • Summary: This is not a scanner you will have programmed with all you want right out of the box with your local information stored on it. It is not user friendly. It is a complicated scanner requiring complicated programming. There are some "pre-programmed" areas (Alaska, some other states) but like me it is likely your area is not already in there.

  • Summary: I love this scanner it is excellent product ,had great reviews. the one thing I don't like is there is a lot of info on the the operation of this scanner that you simply don't get from the manual. there is no other digital scanner on the market today so uniden has the market cornered there is nothing else to compare this to.

Could've rated at 5 stars but...

M. Hensley, Amazon

  • Summary: I have owned this scanner for two weeks. I started planning everything prior to the scanner and Uniden USB-1 cable arriving. First interfacing software; Freescan is a great program but, living in the country, I have satellite internet. Freescan will not work with my satellite internet. I understand it is due to the long ping. Both ARC XT and Proscan work fine with it. They aren't free but a necessity. Uniden should've included free software AND a USB cable.

Great Scanner but I really should have listened to my fellow reviewers. Not for Noobs or the quickly bored.

  • Summary: That being said I think its the most reliable and cost effective unit available for digital scanning. none of the directions worked for "easy set up despite being in Rhode SIalnd which is one of the options...took me hours to get alaska off screen! Anyway...I got the software, the subscription but this was a but more than a noob like myself could handle with out to some real learning. But thats what life is about right?

DELETE EVERYTHING IN IT WHEN YOU GET IT...

Dactler, Amazon
26 February 2014
  • Summary: I replaced my ancient BC-200XLT that finally died permanently on me with this thing. I never hooked it to my computer, nor did I even bother to look at the manual. Opened the box, Connected the Antenna and power, Got annoyed with the pre-programmed junk in it (I do not live in Alaska, Delaware, ETC, and even my own state was incorrectly programmed anyway), so I erased all the pre-set Systems, EVERYTHING from it by choosing each system, then DELETE System.

As long as they don't go to coded it works great

Zilla, Amazon

  • Summary: I purchased this radio, but as soon as I did I started investigating and found that most of the police and fire in my area have went to coded and there is no way possible to receive it. Lucky for me, Amazon said refuse shipment, which I did. Thanks Amazon.

Great Unit

  • Summary: Got this for our sheriff's office awhile ago and it has been working without an issue. These are much easier to program if you use the cable and a program you can fine on the net.
