    Default RX55

    Is the RX55 as good as the RX65? I see that it's a lot cheaper in price.....Can someone list any big differences? Is the range the same between the two?

    The RX55 doesn't detect Ku band.

    The RX55 is a great detector for the price, but at the lower price point it falses a bit more than the 65 and has slightly less range and features. It shares the same case mould as the RX65 but in matte black plastic. Roy [owner of this site] rates it well here:

    It's been discussed a bit before on this forum. Try searching 'RX55'.

    You only need to worry about Ku band for now if you live in Europe.

    I found that the unit didn't false any more than the rx65, and the detection is so close there really isn't any difference! The one thing I like better about the rx55 is that it seem's to weigh about half as much as the rx65!

    Agreed, it is nice and light compared to the 65. Doesn't bounce around so much. Range is great! My 55 gives more Ka falses than my 65. When my 65 says Ka, it means it!
