Uniden DFR8 Review


This new Uniden DFR8 model replaces the the DFR6. For its price range, the DFR8 offers a tremendous amount of value for the money. While much of the improvements are cosmetic, there are enough functional improvements and additional configuration which makes this new detector another home-run for Uniden. It is currently our top pick for a detector in this price range for a non-gps enabled radar detector,

For a detector with upgradable firmware, GPS for red light and fix speed cameras and the ability to lock out and ignore false alerts, no other detector performs as well of this Uniden in its price range. For those preferring GPS functionality but are looking for a great detector at a great price, we recommend the new Uniden DFR9.

4 of 5 Slight Upgrade July 10, 2019
Reviewer: James from New Mexico  
I have always purchased Beltronics radar detectors and was sad that they were no more. After reading the reviews, I purchased the Uniden DFR8. While it has a lot more bells and whistles than my previous Beltronics  radar detectors, its range is about the same. I tested them side-by-side. There is a noticeable difference is the false alerts. Uniden cuts out more false alerts than my previous Beltronics. The alert distance is about the same. I am pleased with the Uniden. Thank you Radarbusters.

5 of 5 Product and staff at top rate November 21, 2018
Reviewer: David Champness from Cincinnati, OH United States  
I initially called to ask questions about a product I found at another retailer. Upon further review I found the other product was an older antiquated model hence why it was so cheap. I gave the guy I was working with via "live chat" my parameters and he came back with his recommendations. I bought on the spot. The Uniden itself, flawless. Used it to drive from Oh to FLA and it worked like a charm. Great detection and range warning. "They haven't caught me yet."
