? Have a 100, am likely to pull the trigger on a 200 any time now, figure it wouldn't hurt to wait and see if any holiday sales develop.
I saw that too, not sure why though. If you go here, its not listed: ScannersThey don't even have the 100 listed on their own web site, odd. I think I saw a thread about this some time back and they implied that they didn't want to compete with their own vendors, but this was back when supply was low and they were hard to find in stock anywhere.
Well yeah true, they are not "mass produced" as we know the term with consumer electronics, such as an Echo Show or a coffee maker from best buy, but they are not scarce, every single reputable scanner outlet has them in stock and ready to ship, you can have one on your doorstep within 3 days any time you chose.Given the scarcity of used units on eBay, it's reasonable to infer that Uniden has not put enough SDS scanners into the market to ease demand. Which means discounted sales are unlikely if there is still a scarcity situation.
You might want to consider & would be better off Creating a Free Account with Keepa.com which is where you setup a desired Price for an Item like the Uniden SDS100 or the Uniden SDS200 Scanner & let Keepa do the Price Watching & Homework for you including Lightning Deals so that you don't have to. Keepa will Alert you if Amazon LLC or a 3rd Party Seller on Amazon goes down in Price on a Product such as the Uniden SDS100 or Uniden SDS2000 but only, if it's at or less than your desired/set Price that you would Purchase the Product for.I don't remember ever seeing any Uniden-run "sales". I may be mistaken.
I'd just keep my eyes on Amazon's pricing.
I wouldn't expect ANY sale pricing on the SDS series, however.
How so, didn't you originally pay for the 436HP ?You Do It Electronics had a 20% off any item in the store and free shipping. I had to pay sales tax, but still ended up at $551.00 and got next day shipping. Then I sold my 436HP which cut into the sales price quite a bit. Have a spare battery and charger on the way, bought the DMR and NXDN upgrades, and I'm looking at cases.
I'll still be under $300.00 out of pocket for the whole thing.
