30 day return with RMA.

Defective Items will be gladly exchanged with no Restocking Fee, and Shipping Charges will be credited towards shipment of new item. All Non Exchanged products are subject to a 15% restocking fee. This is due to our cost of processing the order, credit card transactions (charge, refund), packaging materials, product re-inspection, manpower etc. Shipping Charges are non-refundable. If an item that was shipped for FREE is returned the original shipment costs may be deducted from the return credit.

Please note a 15% fee will be assessed for all refused shipments. In addition, the customer will be responsible for any return shipping charges assessed by the courier.

Anyone have real life experience with this one versus the Radenso XP as far as BSM filtering?

During my personal tests in real life, the XP disappointed, with it falsing more than my 9500ix on K band for BSM alerts.

With this seller it would be too costly to return if unsatisfied with its performance or if defective, and you want a refund instead of an exchange.

15% restock = $37.50 plus return shipping, and their original shipping cost even though they ship free to you, so about a $60 to $65 (rough estimate) gamble. I know reviews are good and I know what HCW thinks already (no offense to you OP), so looking for other owners.

I repped for the post! This one is on my wish list.

It's made by the same engineers that make the Radenso XP. I have got to say that my XP is really quiet and that you may not have yours setup the correct way . Try these settings
I recommend using X off, K narrow, Ka2,5,6 and 8, POP off, BSM On, TSR Off, Laser On, AutoMute On, AutoMute 80%, AutoCity Mode, AutoCity Speed Limit 25 (Low speed Muting), and 55 (City Speed), City Filter Mode X0, K4, Ka0, Display Mode Frequency.

The rest you can leave as it is.

It will take a while for people to forget $170 price for LRD950 (not that that price will ever come back). I actually got mine for $102 after various promos and cashbacks.

Also, it's now possible to run DFR7 firmware on LRD950s without major issues, making upgrade to DFR7 not interesting at all for existing LRD950 owners.

Does the DFR7 also have expert mode or similar settings options?

I think Uniden has most of the settings from the XP but XP might have a couple more.

Repped. I was on mobile. Thank you!
I read about Scan Mode, but other than looking like K.I.T.T's grill, what is it actually scanning for if enabled? Confused

Did you typo? Other thread you linked to shows price was $270 and yours is $250.Confused
Maybe the true RD crowd is not here online today, since this is last minute X-mas shopping for many. I see a really scattered category listing of reasons for the TD's.

I personally want this unit to test, and hopefully enjoy and replace mine, but definitely not from this merchant. Crappy return policy as I noted. I did submit to Amazon to see if I can get them to match, and will help and advise you here if they do.

If you have a discover card/ citi card you could buy from Amazon then use price protection to get the difference back and I do agree that this merchant has a pretty crappy return policy. I don't really see how they could legally charge you for a refused delivery. Happy Holidays look around
