    Default Beltronics Express795 from Radio-Shack

    Just saw that Radio-Shack is offering the Express795 for 99bucks.
    Does anyone have some experience with it ? From the specs
    it should have the new sef-calibration electronics which should always
    keep the sensitivity at high level.

    I saw that on Radio shack's site as well but I do not see that model listed on Bel's site.
    Is this a special unit for Radio shack only or is this being discontinued?

    It would appear that the 795 is going to be the new model in the Express line. It's included in this review:

    Good find Compu44!!

    Seems like for the money it is another unit under $100 worth looking at.

    It looks to me like this might be one unit that might be worth testing for Roy. I should think there would be some demand for a Bel Express model on his site, they absolutely kill Whistler and Cobra units that cost way more.

    I would have to agree, I would like to see some testing on this unit as well.
    I would like to see it tested against the Whistler PRO series and a Cobra.

    I know I am always getting asked for opinions for radar detectors for under $125 or so.
    I have a Bel 980 that I still use from time to time and it does a good job even though it is an older model, I wonder if this new bel could compete or be even better than a 980?
    Wouldn't that be cool a $100 radar detector that can beat an older model that was twice its cost when it came out

    I bought my mom a Bel Express 925 and the K-Band range on it seems equal to my Bel RX65 on straight roads, and only slightly behind the RX on curves. Ka band however, is a lot shorter.

    The mounts that came with the 925/935 really sucked, the visor mount broke right after getting it and now the windshield mount is broke too, but I noticed that they have gone to the RX style mounting, which I like much better.

    Yes the 795 has POP detection.
    Do not know how well it works since I do not have POP in my state or any way to test it.
