My dad bought me a radar detector as a birthday gift. At first I was really excited because you know how Cobra is ultra flashy with their s***. Well in my excitement I searched endlessly for reviews on my new XRS 9700 and luckily found this site. Unfortunatley,I read the Cobra section which was a reeeeeaaaaalllll downer...... :shock: . I drive a 2001 Honda Accord Coupe V6 with an AEM cold air, so I automatically like to push the limits here and there . Now I've had this radar detector for about a month and so far I have nothing bad to say about it. It's saved me twice and dectects K,KA from up to a mile away. I won't deny that it falses here and there, but other than that, I feel like it's a perfectly content RD. I know of course that there are plenty other better ones and that Cobra does overcharges like b****. Now my question is my I have a Beltronics Express 916 sitting at home which has served me valiantly. Is that RD better than my XRS9700 and should I use that one instead?
