I bought a Whistler 695 for myself a few weeks back, and it's a very good detector. However, I just saw the Bel RX65 Red on sale at Amazon for $227 (and that's directly from Amazon, not an Amazon seller), so I decided to get it for my wife for Christmas. Of course, we may have to use it on trips out of town, and I figure I can mount both of them and compare them on long trips (another toy to play with my wife always says).
What wife doesn't dream of radar detectors under the tree (much more practical than jewelry says I)? Yep, she's a lucky gal, if I do say so myself.
