So I am in the market for a R1. Price ranges from 200 on Amazon to 299. Ebay is kind of the same range. Leery of Amazon and ebay as I dont know if they are Uniden dealers. Also concerned some are remans and they are not saying so. Anyone have a good ebay or Amazon seller you recommend? Or suggestions on where to get a good deal and still have warranty honored? How about remans? I know its a shorter warranty but other than that should be good?

Thanks
Wayne

I think Amazon is a pretty safe bet, since their return policy is so good and hassle free. Ebay tends to be a bit more sketchy in my experience.

Put an alert on slickdeals for Uniden. There was a Rakuten deal a while ago for R3 for around 270.

I got mine from Amazon - delivered in a couple of days and they have some really great prices. Easy return policy and I've never had any issues with them. Will be ordering another one soon for my wife [well, she will get my R1, I will get the R3].
But mentioning Amazon in public around where I live is punishable. I have friends that I can't mentioned the A word around them. Here W is king [NW Arkansas - home of Walmart].

Edit: Since Walmart headquarters has their own post office, the CEO Doug once called all corp people into the post office and had all of their Amazon packages lined up and called the people down to pick up their packages. For the last time. I once had to order something from A and sneak it to the persons house making sure that I removed all packaging so that her husband [good friends with both of them] wouldn't know. There was a time where while at Walmart #1 [they number their stores based on starting date] I ordered batteries from Amazon. I was truly afraid that the Walmart cops would stop me. They block A from their network now...

I now have 4 R1's and they are all killers! I got my first one brand new from @BestRadarDetectors and the other 3 right here on the forum. One was from a forum member who happened to mention he was thinking about selling his so I snatched it up! The other 2 I got right here from our classifieds. Both had only been run for a few hours and were just like new and all 4 of them are monsters! If you search our classified section most of the time you can pick one up for around $200.00 or so. I forgot that you have to at least be a Beginner on the forum before you can use the classifieds.

I would recommend Amazon, personally. It is a lot more hassle free. When looking for a radar, I also suggest that you're purchasing the unit in a "Brand New" condition, and make sure that you keep copy of the sales receipt/order confirmation for warranty purposes!

I have owned two R series (both R3s) detectors (I sold one, and still have one). I personally haven’t had any issues with my R3s, and they both have been strong performers. I love my R3. If I were choosing between reman vs new, I would lean towards new for the longer warranty. @Kennyc56 has three used R1s (as he mentioned), and they are working great for him. I guess it all boils down to your budget and how much you want to pay and how important a warranty is to you. Good luck with your decision. I have also noticed a difference between prices among different vendors on the R1/R3s.

The only reason I bought my 3 R1's used is because I got them off our classifieds from members I trusted. 2 of them had been run less than 1 hour! Normally I wouldn't buy any detector unless it was brand new, but in this case I knew I'd be all good! I've also picked up 2 perfect Redline-O's off of the classifieds with the same results. I trust our members, and all of them I bought from were Advanced members as well. I knew once the R7's came out that there was going to be a lot of R1's, R3's, and Redlines for sale and I was right! Timing is everything!

You should jump on this with both feet! I just picked up A Redline-O from Tom and it's perfect and worth every penny I paid for it!
