Not a bad deal, if something's going to go wrong it's probably going to go wrong in the first couple months anyway. It's a pretty safe bet.

I would NEVER buy a refurb unless it was directly from the Manufacture not some Ebay seller.

But that is me IE proceed at your own risk.

The ad does say manufacturer refurbished in the "about this item" section. Still always a crap shoot with refurb stuff it seems.

Bought an ebay manufacturer refurb R3 (EDIT: re-checked, it was from this seller) to replace my launch R3 that stops detecting K band when it gets warm (>35 mins).

Would definitely buy a manufacturer refurb Uniden again - at least you know its been checked and repaired. Mine looked like a brand new unit on arrival.

My wife's ebay refurbished R3 is hotter than mine. It also appeared to be a manufacture refurb, but wasn't sold by uniden.

I'm considering getting one of these refurb R7's just simply because I cannot justify paying full price when I already have an R3 which is every bit as good as an R7 - minus the arrows and memory.

I bought two R3’s from this seller and both looked like new. No issues. I am watching this R7 as well just because I might want arrows after reading around here a bit. Ha.

I wouldn't hesitate because refurbs often get better QC than production run units. I've had very good luck with "factory" refurb products in the past.

I just got my refurb R7 last week from this seller. Shipping was very quick. Looks like new but did need the latest firmware and database update. The box and detector had refurbished stickers and looks to have been done by Uniden. Too early to tell performance yet since I have a few dozen speed signs in my area I need to lock out first. I’m really hoping it’ll be less chatty than my DFR7. Running in advanced mode with K at 50% and the rest of @Vortex recommended settings.

The R7 should be quieter if dialed in correctly.

I will keep this in mind.

Firmware and database updating are no big deal really. I can't run K band with that low of sensitivity because I still have a lot of real K band threats around here, but notching and running K narrow with the BSM filtering on goes a long way to keeping it less chatty.

I wouldn't hesitate because refurbs often get better QC than production run units. I've had very good luck with "factory" refurb products in the past.
Yeah I had wondered the same. I got a refurb RX65 with an S7 horn years ago off eBay that performed fantastically (at least at the time) and it still works today although I never use it except maybe for the occasional test anymore.

Just thinking about making the jump - because as great as the R3 has been it's showing signs of screen burn in on the display now and the power connector for it has seen better days.

Keep in mind that even at 50% K band sensitivity, the R7 is still more sensitive on K band (in the lab) than any other past or current detector (excluding the R1/R3, obviously).
