The instructions to me were almost worthless as the manual seemed poorly written.

This is a great scanner, with very good specs, has a nice, small form-factor, and works reliably.

I concur with the positives in the other, previous reviews.

But I've got a couple of gripes, for which I knocked one star off the rating: (these are not deal-breakers, but just things to be aware of)

1. The included rechargeable batteries are just a bit too large in diameter for the battery cover to fit properly (the cover sort of "bulges" out). More of an annoyance at this point, but I'm concerned that it could possibly break eventually, requiring me to find a replacement cover. (Using AA batteries does not cause this problem, the cover fits just fine with them).

2. The arrangement and organization of the owner's manual is very poor in my view. It's not printed, which may surprise some buyers, personally I'd prefer it printed, but I understand the economics of releasing it only online/on included CD. But sorry, the manual is VERY POORLY arranged. I'm an experienced radio guy, just not with Uniden brand products. But I still am getting frustrated trying to find stuff. I would much prefer a PDF style manual, where typefaces, spacing, white space, etc. can be combined to communicate point much more effectively. Is this a big deal? Well probably not a deal-breaker, once you/I figure out how the various features work, we won't need the manual much, but it's a royal pain until then. You may have friends who can help you out on this, which may make this irritation not too big a deal for you.

3. This scanner does have a LOT OF CAPABILITY, including some really cool features, as a result, most keys have multiple functions, some (again, my personal opinion) are not as well thought out as I would prefer, ie not intuitive.

I was given this model as a free upgrade due to the one I ordered being out of stock. At first it is a little hard to program since I didnt buy the software, but I read some help forums I got from google searching the model and it was a breeze. Now that I have all my locals programmed I love it. I pick up police units that are 40 miles or more away from me at times. It is kind of funny though when the close call feature pick up drive thru windows and you can hear what everyone around you is ordering. I gave it four stars because the manual is only on disk and is very confusing. Google search for help and your set. Also I use this site to get all the freqs I could ever need and they are very accurate [..]

When I was shopping for a new portable scanner, I was looking at the GRE PSR-300 and this Uniden BC346XT. Both are great scanners as far as reviews and features go, but I ultimately settled on the higher priced BC346XT (obviously) because it had some features that I absolutely wanted which the GRE scanner lacked. The only downside(s) so far is that this scanner is up to $70 more in price than the GRE and that Amazon dropped the price by $18 AFTER I got it shipped to me. Hehe... so frustrating! I could have gotten it for a better price locally, but then the sales tax comes in and Amazon was just cheaper overall.

Anyway, back to the scanner.

This thing is amazing. I've had it for going on 3 days now (since 5/28/2010) and after a short learning curve (scanners have sure changed), this thing is just wonderful. Its size is great. I honestly thought it would be bigger than it really is judging from the images I have seen online, but it is REALLY compact. The audio is perfect with perfect tone and loud output even when set to low.

I have not played with every feature of this scanner yet, but I am sure it is all as good as what I have toyed with so far. I have been using FreeSCAN to program it and that program has been good to me so far.

Pros:
- Clear audio
- Comes with rechargeable batteries (I have gotten 11 hours out of them with the backlight on infinity)
- Comes with a really sturdy belt clip. I was shocked it was as nice as it is
- It is easy to program through your computer with FreeSCAN (no Mac support for this) or through the keypad
- The display is informative. Signal strength and 3 different modes are just 2 of the pros of the screen
- Rebanding support and upgradeable firmware (obviously) help a lot.

This is a non-digital scanner with all the features you could possibly expect. I have been using it for over a year, recently alongside my Uniden BC396XT Base/Mobile scanner, and the great thing is you can download the exact same file to both scanners using the same program. I have three problems with this scanner: the plastic case tends to chip and break, especially the inside which causes rattling pieces inside, the audio is fine for indoor base station use but poor for portable use in the field without an earpiece, and the battery life isn't great.

Reception quality is good, have never had any audio quality problems. The speaker has a decent volume range, but it would be nice if it got a little louder. The speaker is also glued to the front case, which is also the piece that seems to break the most, so in order to replace that front part of the case you need to cut it off. The scanner isn't quite stable enough to sit on a table on its own with the longer 14" antenna.

Programming this thing without a PC is a pain, but it is possible, and all features can be accessed from the menu. Unlike some other products I've tried, you can do everything without a PC, the PC just makes it easier, faster, and allows you to save the configuration.

The weather alert/priority channel/close call features all require that the scanner briefly come off the active channel every five seconds or so (user configurable), this causes a momentary audio interruption if you have any of those features enabled. This is an annoyance but is not unique to this scanner. The reason it only gets three stars from me is a combination of the flimsy plastic, difficulty in replacing the front case panel, and insufficient audio for use in the field.
