Bel 895 or 965...which to keep/get rid of?
So currently I own 3 detectors and 2 detectors that are used by my family totaling to 5 detectors. I need to get rid of at least one of them...especially to help fund my recent purchase of a 3.813 V1.
So I was wondering which unit is better and worth to keep? The Bel 895 or 965? Both these units have the S7 horn and were manufactured around the same time in 2004. I know the 895 uses an old RX-65 motherboard, but supposedly it's crippled. I haven't used the 965 much, from what I see it's about the same since it falses in the same areas.
What would you guys pick? Keep the 895 or 965?
Id base it on which one works better. OR on which would fetch the highest price when selling. If you suspect the 895 is crippled, you cant rightly sell it to someone without telling them that, and it will fetch a lower price. Id say its kind of a toss up, maybe someone else will have more reasons, or better reasoning.
the vector 965 will sell for more than the vector 895
Thanks for all who participated in the poll.
I think I will end up selling the 895. It was my first good radar and it still works very well. I just hate the ramp up on the Bels in general. V1 and Escort suit me better.
Isn't the 895 already crippled in some way since it uses the old RX-65 motherboard and probably doesn't have as good as software as the RX-65 does?
one difference is the 895 doesn't have tech mode, and i think from what i have read around here the rx65 has "better" filtering and range
