    Default Bought a V965 (chrome), thoughts so far

    > Beltronics online registration doesn't work - tried for 3 days registering my product, and i get an error; they dont respond to emails either.

    > I was swayed towards the 965 because the box claimed 110-115 dbm/cm2 radar sensitivity, vs 105-110 for the 955. Whether that's true or not, i don't know, but I do know i have the peace of mind I have as sensitive a radar detector made by Bell (995, rx-65 supposed to also be 110-115).

    > POP will stay off. I had it on, and in just one short trip, pop went off when i drove past a lone car (not police), with no police in sight. It seems clear why Beltronics recommends that it stay off (because it doesn't work right).

    > Its barely loud enough - 3 bars volume (max apparently) is just loud enough.

    > Ka seems to work great, and it falses less than my Pro 58. The display is plenty bright, yay!

    > Its at least twice as heavy as the Pro 58, though smaller in footprint.

    > I love the coiled cord; its just long enough and no extra cord hangs!

    That's it for now. It seems really nice and I have no buyer's remourse.

Its good that Bel's engineers still haven't forgotten those problems!

    The 965, in my opinion, seems to be a very good value for the money.

    Is that why the early 90 BELs (645/745) falsed so much? Modern RD falsing is nothing compared to those!
