Good Find!!! I am interested in the Uniden Cam right above the ad for $29 bucks!!

BTW, for those on the fence about getting an R1 or R3, NOW's the time to get at least the R1 for a killer price. That's $80.00 below current pricing and a great deal for $199.00. To me , the GPS-less R1 is akin to the old RX65 S7 units. Not a whole lot of frills, BUT a whole lot of performance in a simple to use package. Get em while they're hot.

In terms of warranty coverage, is Best Buy a legit re-seller?

I thought Best Buy and Fry's were Legit Resellers since LRD950's

R3 is for $299 at Fry's and you can buy it now and not wait to BF.

Damn, you're a wealth of finds today. Yeah, that's a great deal as well, BUT for those who don't want or need GPS, the R1 is a fine deal. $299.00 for an R3 is $100 off current pricing , so on a percentage basis, its even a better deal than the R1.

Went to Frys site and that appears to be an R1 for $299.00, NOT an R3??

Yeah I love me some quiet ride setting and the red light cameras so I love the R3. Plus the OVERSPEED is really useful when I just zone out and lead foot the accelerator on an empty highway at night.

Yeah the Add is for R1 even if the picture is different..they will just issue a correction on the image. But it says R1 so that trumps the image.

Arts department vs the Financial/advertising department. The arts department just prob pulled a representative Uniden Image.

I don't think Uniden would allow the R3 to be sold that low...i.e. if you look at all the black friday deals across all companies the sale prices on items are basically the same...i.e. they are manufacturer controlled. I.e. PS4 and XBOX S is $199 across all major national retailers. A mom and pop shop might offer something lower but that will their less on profit.

Just to note for anyone that misses this and might care: Vortex talked about these in his black friday deals video recently. These ones are a special for best buy right now. The detectors are 100% the same as any other R1 but the accessories are slimmed down. This only comes with the suction cup mount, and a standard power cord (no mute button, led indicator, nor usb port) and lacks the zip up case that the unidens normally come with.

Probably doesn't affect many, but just thought I'd make a note of that in case anyone was looking at these.
You can pick up the standard mute power cord at BRD for ~$25ish if the above is a concern

R1 is $180 now at BestBuy. No smart cord and no carrying case apparently.
