I recently bought the Vector 995 and have 2 weeks to return it. So far it seems to be a decent detector and I got it for $199. However, I have read mixed reviews on this detector. Some say it's as good as the X50 and V1 and some say it gives about 1/2 the warning distance of the RX-65 and X50... :?: on Roy's test and Speedzones they give it good ratings.
Was their a bad batch or just some Bel bashers out there? I am familiar with radar detectors going back to the days of the Uniden RD-55, passports (various Escorts) Bel 980 and now the V995. So far(the V995) it seems a tad more sensitive than the Bel 980(on "X" and "K" band) I live in NJ and they have mostly "X" band continuous and Instant on. However, in Northern NJ they are switching to "KA" band. So I have not been able to run into "KA" yet to get a "real world" test. Any comments, please?
