    Default first detector ever

    i must confess..

    the first detector i ever owned was a cobra my sister got me last july (04) for my bday. it was the cheapest one at the time, i think 60 bucks, and managed to alert x band in nj half decently (not horrible). it did manage to alert me ka band once i was about 2 seconds away from the leo and i was toast going 80 in a 65 (originally going 90).

    cobraaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh 8)


    ps- can i use it to test the range on my v1?

    my first radar was a cobra as well, a 30 dollar cobra from walmart!

    then i bought another cobra but a $70(9210)

    then i realized they were all crap and got an escort X50

    then i still wasnt satisfied and bought a V1

    then..............

    yes cobra
    are alot weaker than some other units but come on. some folks have budgets u know :wink: alot of this members here that dont post have cobra units and this is the main reason they dont post here beacuse all the bashing about cobra radar detectors give them a little break now

    shute my first 3 detectors were cobras. the 6060, 9200, and xrs9300. i didnt think they were that bad. my favorite was the 9200, it actually had very good range on K. but obviously they're nothing compared to the x50 or V1 but like it was stated before, not everyone can afford them. however if i had know what i know now back then, i wouldve saved my money from those and gotten a v1 or x50 earlier. but we all make mistakes right.

    Is the Cobra performance worse than the Whistler 1793 SE?
