Last fall my DFR 7 fell off the windshield on a hot day and broke the LED display. Unit works fine, but no display is bugging me. Should I send it in to have Uniden fix it for $70 or replace it with a R3.
Been seeing new ones for $265 and refurbished ones for 230. Any input appreciated.

Replace it with the Uniden R3 or, if you would like to have arrows, the R7. The R7 price also puts you in the ballpark of a Valenine 1 Gen2.

I agree with what @DifferentialT recommends. I would spend the money to at least go to the R3. The R3 is great radar detector for the money. If you want arrows, the R7 is a great value which just had a significant firmware update. Good luck with your decision.
