    Default question?

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Due to this new deal from radioshack for whistler 1788 for $99(regular price $199) A new doubt has raised its ugly head :twisted: ..... should One go for the bel E795 or the 1788. the 1788 is cordless but it comes with a cord and can be used as a corded RD also.
    How is the range on X,K,Ka?which one is better? has there been an comparison done between the two? Any data available?
    I m comparing these two cuz I work for Radioshack and I will get some discount off of them and my budget is below $100/-
    HELP....................... :?:

    Its a good question, interested to hear the answer as well from the stand point of comparing a expensive Whistler to a cheap Beltronics (special note that a special sale is running and costs are equal) so which is better?

    I know Escort cordless is better than Beltronics cordless but for the value, how much so.

    Hey maybe VR should come out with a "cheaper cordless" or a arrowless model, you know it all about buisness, it would grab up people that trust in VR but could not afford such a feature rich unit.

    I will say this for VR the answer is NO!!~. $400 is good they have been plenty of folks calling VR for this cheaper model but the answer is NO like allways 8)

    I wouldn't buy a cordless RD because I wouldn't trust the performance. If the batteries are running low and/or not fully charged I think the range of the RD would decrease. I don't think it would be 100%. Just my opinion.
