    Default Cobra Pro 9780 XRS series?

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...752905479&rd=1

    What in the world is this one about? Has anyone tried this detector out?

    That looks identical to the 9700 I bought my girlfriend...could be that 9780 is just an "internal" designation. I actually meant to post some feedback that she gave me so I may as well do it now.

    She's had it for about a week and does quite a bit of driving on both highways and rural back roads. The bottom line is that she really likes it. She's been encountering a LOT of cops and has gotten very good range on K and Ka band. Much of the time she gets warning well before she even sees the cop. She claims that she was definitely saved at least once when it alerted on a well-hidden enforcer running connstant-on (don't know what band.) It's a very subjective assessment so take it for what you will. According to her, though, it's very good.

    Three different models: ESD 9870, XRS 9700, PRO 9780
    Cobra has WAY too many different models.

    Anybody know the difference between XRS, ESD, and PRO models? Which is best, or does it even matter?

    ESD series aren't good at all. Had two of those.

    XRS seem OK. POP detect is useless, K is a little short, otherwise OK.

    I can't find any mention of a Pro series on cobra.com, almost sounds like an ebay invention. :?

    wow, I stand corrected. We can all be in agreement of one thing though-

    "Cobra has way too many models"

    I had the xrs777 from wally world. It seemed like it was the same as the 9700 model from the pictures. Anyway I took it back it falsed so much I almost went crazy. The funny thing is when I was pulling back into walmart to return it the vg2 alert went off. We don't have those in TN. POS in my opinion. I've bought a whistler pro 73 to play with and gave to my wife and it seems MUCH better than the cobra as far as falsing.
