Some of you may remember my radar detector escapades a couple
months ago. Just to quickly recap - I got a Uniden LRD6199SW last
Christmas. On a recent caravanning trip with two 5KCSTQs from Chicago to
Flint, I had the Uniden in one car, and my old Bel 826 in the other car.
There were so many radar traps, that we were able to verify very
definitely that the Uniden was doing NOTHING. The Bel consistently gave
me a mile or two warning.
I returned the Uniden for repair, and after a 5 week wait, I got it
back today "No Trouble Found"!!!!!
I guess that just confirms that Uniden makes junk (and they don't
serve the junk-buying customers very well either.) Initially, the store
that sold it to me sounded like they weren't going to help me at all, but
today they said they would exchange it for a Bel. They have the 525 and
the 560. Which one would you guys recommend?
BTW, I think it was Car & Driver that recommended the Uniden as
virtually equal to the Bel in their last detector test last fall. I
think I'll send an email to C&D about this failure of Uniden.
Thanks very much.
