Exclamation Question About Display Issues With 75XLT's

Howdy all,

I'm looking at a BC75XLT to use as a conventional scanner while out on the road, but have heard that some of the older models suffered from premature failure of the LCD display while they were still relatively new. I was also told that even though they are nearly identical radios, the 125AT uses a different display. So, before I "take the plunge" and purchase one, does anyone know if Uniden has addressed this problem, and was this issue confined to a specific batch or a specific run of serial numbers, like the early models of the -436HP?

Thanks in advance!

I've not heard any such report of frequent early display death on the BC75XLT.

UPMan, precisely this problem. A few reviews on Amazon and elsewhere have stated others experienced the same problem with their displays going bad after a year or so...
