I feel the R3 deal comes around every other week. Will wait for that one.

Edit, checked and seems like R3's been front-page EVERY week.

This or the R1? 🤔
I'll always choose range over features, that's just my personal philosophy. It's up to you.

:
I wouldn't spend 100s on something where the cop has you clocked and locked before you can even dream of pulling your foot off the gas. Only time this helps is if they're driving or sitting and they leave the radar on.
I have a V1 and it is an excellent tool for reminding me to go the speed limit.

I have gotten line of sight-obstructed laser bounce alerts, well before CHP had a direct/clear line of sight. So no, it won't jam laser but to say it won't add awareness to the situation while you can still react is foolish.

As for PD sitting/driving with it on:

This tool helps if PD is pulled over for an incident around a blind corner with their K band on to, alerting motorists monitoring the waves, well before you can see the lights.

Oh it also works great when they are working up behind you at excessive speed. Particularly if you are on some weird state highway that has many sets of lights spanned out and there is a cop pushing thru the light patterns from well behind your pack, and gapping up to your pack. The signal strength pattern is easily identifiable, even without V1 arrows or counter.

It also helps if you are in a bum fark area that drops from 65 -> 45 -> 35 abruptly and there is someone patiently waiting to light em up on an unsuspecting motorist. (The Death Valley surrounding area has a few of these and I bet they print their own money from foreign tourists off this)

I wouldn't go off the deep end and spend 500+ on just a detector, but I would get a reputable model at good value, if I didn't already have one, any day of the week. This is a vital tool for next level driving awareness, don't be aloof, especially if it can cost you $$$.

I have the R3 in one car and he V1 in my other car. As with anyone with a valentine, I am a die hard fan of the arrows. I do love the R3, but as a valentine user, I get annoyed anytime the R3 goes off and I can't tell where it's coming from. I feel safer with the range of the R3 over the valentine though.

Having owned a uniden-several models, including this one, several passports and valentine 1. The Valentine has out performed and outlasted all of them but they come with a price tag. When it comes to bang for buck I think these Unidens can't be beat. I also agree that they are very sensitive. Now, as far as "long range". From what I've experienced in highway scenarios, almost any radar detector is good on long flat out distances. Yes, they can vary in detection distance but this is usually due to interference, not necessarily the actual capability of the unit to detect. I use my Uniden for everyday driving in my truck then use the valentine 1 in my road trip vehicle. I'm not an expert but I haven't had a speeding ticket going through any small towns here in Texas in probably 10 years.

R3 range is crazy good. I've picked up cops 2 miles down the road. Its so far off it makes me wonder if its a false alert. Awesome.....

Agree. I use the R3 and Waze and regularly pick up KA bands at 2+ miles away and verify on Waze and with my own 2 eyes 😂 It can be a little annoying with no arrows but regardless of which you pick, if that thing goes off, foot OFF the gas.

I agreed. this radar detector worth every penny. It already saved me at least two tickets. one from radar trap and one from Laser trap at night on one end of the Courtney Campbell Parkway. They stopped 5 motorists on the other side of the bridge.

Radar has good reviews, but with any radar nothing is full proof...you have to still drive smart. If a cop is using pop, it's going to be tough. Using waze in conjunction is super effective.

Even with that, i've had my radar which is a Valentine V1 that was purchased in 2003! still working....I don't think i've had any electronic, let alone one that sits in my car (multiple ones) that has dealt with super cold and super hot weather and is still working just as good. It was super expensive, but i've lost count how many times it has saved me. It's paid for itself 100x IMO... I've had multiple occurrences where i'm the leader of pack on the highway, going well above the speed limit with a few others. My radar starts to sound, so i pull to the center lane and slow down, while the car behind me keeps going and they get pulled over. It's nuts...

Reading up on these things, I really like the automation of the Escort Max 360C (albeit with somewhat shorter range than the R3), but they're very expensive and it looks like there haven't been any really slick slickdeals on those. Frown

Spend $75 more and buy the R3 on sale. You're already spending $200 on a detector.

Can someone breakdown the difference between the DFR9 and R3?
