Well, I bought a Bel Vector about one year ago and I stated then that I would return to this forum and report it's results. Overall, I'd say this is the perfect entry level detector. I love it. And, I put it thru the ringer every day. I travel 65 miles to work each day and traverse thru 3 Texas Counties in the process. I see Texas DPS, City, County and Constable LEO's every day. I took my camera with me on a few of my trips to work just for kicks. Here is a compilation of just a few of the saves that I'd had with the Bel Vector 940.
This was an encounter I had in the fog with a Brenham, Texas PD.
I got a whiff of him long before I saw him. I wouldn't consider this a save but the 940 did a really good job of picking him out in the fog.
This image was of a save that also took place in Brenham, Tx. Lots of the city police in Brenham like to hunt head on. They will clock you and then whip around behind you as soon as they can cross over the median.
Below is a pic that I took of a save that occured in Nacogdoches, Tx. I had rounded a corner and increased my speed rather rapidly. About the time I realized that I was speeding I got a whiff of Ka band radar. The unit gave me 2 bars then went silent. When I got up to the Patrol Unit, my 940 lit up like a Christmas tree. This was a clear save for the 940. This city patrol was using the instant on technique.
This image is of a clear save that occured close to my house. This Sheriff's Deputy drives one of the many Trucks employed by our local County. I caught a whiff of his radar about 2 miles away. Then it got stronger. For some reason, most of the Sheriffs in our county leave their radar on.
Here is an image of a DPS officer that I snapped one morning. I play cat and mouse with this particular DPS officer on a daily basis and I've seen him so many times on the side of the road that I feel confident I could pick him out of a lineup
