I am very interested in the Uniden BCD436HP scanner. I am a little confused as I have seen this scanner listed with retail prices of $900 and $700 before any discounts, they seem to have the same specs. Am I missing something here? Any help or advice would be very much appreciated.

That is someone hoping to make a nice profit, or trying to make people feel they are getting a great deal, once the discounts are applied.

You must be looking on ebay because that happens with just about any scanner on ebay. You will see some for $450 and they you scroll down and you will see some for $600 it's always been that way. Normal price is around $489-$499 new. Ham Radio Outlet had them onsale over the 4th of July for I think it was around $464 so keep your eyes open for deals. http://forums.radioreference.com/un...rs/293884-if-youre-thinking-buying-436hp.html

I'd sell my BCD 536HP for $900 even $700 and go buy a new one and pocket the excess.:wink:

I've seen 996XT's for $699 on ebay. Ridiculous. They count on at least a handful of people who just buy things sight unseen. Maybe they don't sell that many at these prices, but what an ROI on the ones they do.

I ended up buying one from scannermaster, I found a few that were a little cheaper but not any businesses would trust if I had issues with the scanner. Thanks for the input folks.

I got a lightly used 436HP off ebay for $400. Most reputable sellers have new ones for $500-520. MSRP is $550 IIRC. The sellers listing anything above that are being dishonest/shady.
