Has anyone on this forum got one of these? I need some opinions before preventing a third faux pas like I did with the Uniden I just got!

The first mistake was selling my Icom R20. The second was buying this crap from Uniden (EX130XLT)

Is it worth $299?
How well does it receive, particularly on Airband?

Can anyone here recommend a sub-$300 HH scanner of any brand other than Uniden?

Uniden do make some good scanners but you get what you pay for. The $110 no frills budget model is just that.
