    Default Re: Radar Detector Test: Escort Passport 9500i and Cobra XRS 9955

    I find this review as legit and unbiased as Radar Roy's review of Veil Steath coating.

    The reference that the packaging only lists 13 specific bands instead of the 15 as advertised basically sums up the author's knowledge of the subject.

    And that it is being vigorously defended by the OP is hardly surprising...
    It a personal review from someone that no doubt has used detectors before.

    this is what he saw personally when he used each model

    I dare say if his conclusions went against the Cobra significantly you would be complete agreement with them and call the article well written.

    Problem is Cobra blows when I/O is used.
    Any detector can pick up C/O at some distance.

    actually it doesn't as I have been hit with it back words and forwards and it reported it very faithfully.

    and good distance very sufficient to slow down.

    sorry folks that the author of this personal test seems to believe the Cobra isn't quite "crap"

    I will have to complain to him about this !

    For $300 I sure hope it isn't as bad as the $35 versions.
    Untill I see some legit testing to prove otherwise,Cobra = wal-mart crap....period.

    well you can look up the speedzones test for one but I guess if it isn't a gol test it isn't legit.

    all the other rd testers are in a mass conspiracy with each other don't you know.

    Hope you have your microwave proof foil hat on !

    BTW you can get the version tested for 140 dollars now. It's not 300 anymore.

    I shouldn't tell you this but all the other detector testors met every year with the rd manufacturers to fix their tests and the prices of detectors. The one with the most cash to bribe the testers is made the winner.

    apparently Cobra doesn't like to pay too much bribery money out.

    Probably because they manufacturer much more things then detectors.

    That happens to me too.

    just to add to your statement

    I have tested newer more expensive Cobras with other detectors including Bells and they don't set them off.

    but Bells and other detectors will set these Cobra's off !

    spectre emissions by the l/O are a different story

    different set of emissions then traffic radar

    these Cobra's are immune to the spectre 1 though I believe.

    Most newer RD's are immune to Spectre 1 and 2 also VG2 (not used much anymore).

    All of the emissions from from electronics whether intentional or not all fall under FCC rules part 15.
