Yeah. That’s why to me this pre-order thingy was a disappointment. If you look at this thread, this is how the R series was announced to the world.Yes you're right I did some more digging, I believe that was regarding Uniden's lack of supply during the drought after an overwhelming demand for units. Apologies
I want to thank all of the forum members that volunteered their time to help test and make these 2 units what they are today. For years I have loved helping manufactures make and improve products. The first company that gave me the opportunity was AntiLaser and we all know how that turned out...
The forum and community here did an incredible job testing this series out, explaining it, beta testing, providing feedback to Uniden on what to improve and helping make a better product for everyone!
The first batch was sold through BRD and I assumed because of the relationship there and with the forum and community, brd would truly have the first batch again and sell them ahead of everyone else. That was sorta the expectation (at least for me based on prior history). I remember owning that thing and thinking during the drought, thank god I got in early and have this awesome detector.
So when they sent them to Best Buy first (which I understand Best Buy wasn’t suppose to sell them yet) that was a huge let down in my opinion to the community brd and the rest of beta testers and folks on here. I’m glad we now have a date and can move forward, but think it’s important for everyone to understand the history here, etc.
