Uniden DFR9 Review


The new highly anticipated Uniden DFR9 model replaces the the Uniden DFR7. For its price range, the DFR9 offers a 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 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 not requiring GPS functionality but are looking for a great detector at a great price, we recommend the new Uniden DFR8.

4 of 5 helpful sales consultations! January 21, 2019
Reviewer: sports coupe driver from New England, United States  
Having used a certain brand of detectors for decades, I was looking for something similar but with better selectivity.  I tried a newer version of this brand but still found it to 'false' too frequently.  After talking with Mike, I decided to try a different brand.  Although I still had some false alerts, a follow up with Mike reduced this by adjusting the sensitivity of the unit to K-band.  Reducing the sensitivity by 20% seems to have me paying attention when the unit alerts instead of thinking, "Now what is causing it to alert?"  Yet, I don't feel as though I've given up so much sensitivity that I will encounter real LEO K-band use without adequate warning.  I do have one concern about the durability of this brand, and hearing that RadarBusters is not sure they will continue to offer it has me somewhat concerned.  Time will tell!

5 of 5 Very good product and a Great customer service! November 21, 2018
Reviewer: Jonbajo from St. George, UT United States  
The Uniden DFR9 is a very good radar detector. It's my first radar detector and I'm not disappointed with its performance sniffing the wave emitted by a cop's radar gun, well before I spot their patrol car parked alongside the road. Very quiet device.

The first DFR9 that was shipped to me had fading text characters on its front buttons. Customer service at RadarBusters promptly replaced it with another one. Thanks guys.
