A great scanner, BUT...

Harvey, Radioshack
9 January 2014
  • Excerpt: This is a VERY complex device and it lives or dies with the knowledge of the user. Unfortunately Uniden chose to assume that the buyer was an expert and I am extremely disappointed as I am anything but. For the price that they charge, they should have included extensive tutorials. As a scanner it works very well, I guess, but I am only able to use one percent or less of its functionality due to my ignorance.
  • Pros: Clear Signal, Good Audio, Lightweight, Rugged
  • Cons: A Shocking Dearth Of Docs, Complicated Controls, Difficult To Program

Disenchanted!

  • Excerpt: For the price very poor reception along with being complicated to program.<br />Other Radio Shack scanners that I own are rock solid with great performance .<br />Seems like Uniden needs to listen to the folks that are the average Joes using this <br />product. Oh yea good luck with support from Uniden..
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: Complicated Controls, Difficult To Program, Drains Battery, Poor Reception, Short Range

A MUST BUY !!

Chuck, Radioshack
22 November 2013
  • Excerpt: I was skeptical at first to add this Uniden digital scanner to my collection, especially considering the hugh arsenal of scanners I already own. But when my purchased arrived, I was up and running within an hour. Keep in mind! Any modern day digital or analogue scanner will come with a modest to a steep learning curve. Patience is of value here.
  • Pros: Compact Light Weight, Dependable, Good Voice Quality, Great value, Loaded With Features
  • Cons: Steep Learning Curve
