So I purchased the X50 RED in Best Buy. I had the old BEL 940, and it works great, but I gave it to my sister since I'm a nice guy.
Had an option to do the 4year replacement plan, so I did it. $29.95.
I took it home, and noticed that it was defective due to the following.
1. I have a strong X-band source at work (those door card reader things) and the BEL, my friend's V1 and BEL 995 all goes to full X band alert. The new escort was totally silent. :roll:
2. Drive next to a strip mall, and it is silent. :roll: My BEL goes K band crazy.
3. Drive next to a strip mall, and while my old BEL is picking up K band, X50 starts picking up Ka band. :roll:
4. Driving on a Freeway, my BEL is silent, X50 starts giving FULL Ka band alert. :roll:
I had it exchanged, and the new one works fine.
WTF is up with ESCORT quality these days? I didn't think I'd end up with a lemon right off the bat. :roll:
Anyways, I'm glad I didn't buy this X50 online. Otherwise, I would had to deal with shipping it back, talking to CS rep, going through BS, yada yada yada.
