In response to Brick's request for more reviews, here's my findings about the Bel Express 925.
I bought one of these for my Mom as a Christmas present for 2004. I've played with it some, here's what I found.
Alerts- among the loudest i've heard. About on par with my RX65.
Mounts- Windshield mount is interresting to say the least. It's a pain to adjust, requires the use of a screwdriver or small coin, but once you do adjust it, it stays put. It actually rattles less than the mount of my RX.
Visor Mount is so-so. It breaks sort of easy if you mess with it a lot.
Display- The Band ID LEDs could be a tinge brighter, but the 7 segment display is great.
Ka performance is noticably shorter than the RX. X band also seems substantially less sensitive, but K seems about in range with the RX, which is to say quite good. No experience with Laser yet.
The band ID is always right, which seems to be somewhat of an issue with other brands in this pricerange. The signal strength meter is pretty jumpy though.
The automute- Maybe one of the best features of the Bel 925. The 925 has the traditional Bel automute, not like the one on the RX. Wheras the RX reduces the alert volume after a set time, the 925 changes to clicks rather than the standard tones. Very nice.
Still questionable. After using the detector for about 3 months, it started having major problems alerting to Ka band at high signal with no apparent source. I sent it in to Bel, who by the way, were excelent to deal with. Total turn-around time including shipping both ways was less than 2 weeks, and it seems to have been fixed right the first time. The said they replaced the circuit board. I'll see how long it lasts this time. So far so good.
If there is anything else y'all would like to know about this unit, let me know. I'll answer what I can.
