    Default Escort & Bel and the evasiveness over the phone.

    I called Escort the other day with intentions to buy a Bel or an Escort installed unit for my new Audi TT. All I got was some evasive answers about how they share some components, but they aren't the same.

    So the next question I asked was 'which one is better then?'. And the funniest part is they said 'oh, the Escort might be a little better than the Bel.'

    I tried to find out what the differences are and they were completely evasive.

    I would like to know a clear answer to what the differences are. Since they won't even tell me, I presume they're probably almost identical ... and they wanted to help eachother target the V1 market by joining up

    ... but there is goodwill associated both with Escort and with Bel, so they wanted to retain that value.

    Personally, I wish they'd cut the bull and answer me though.

    Right now I drive with a V1 + Blinder, but I was looking at the SRX for my new toy ...

    So .. are they the same or what?

    the BEL RX75 is the same as the SRX and it's cheaper....you should contact Roy at radarbusters, (owner of this forum) he is an authorized dealer of BELscort products and is more than willing to gie you a straight forward answers on the Phone or by Email and heck he might even post here Look at the test results and see for yourself...they are equal
    BEL RX75 = Escort SR7 except the escort is a bit more expensive

    Actually, I'm so sick of Escort's Bull**** that I decided to go with Valentine again. Note to Escort-Bel. I hope you stop with this evasive campaign. It's OK if you maintain 2 brands. Both names have plenty of Good will, but at least be honest to consumers who know about it already.

    You're not.

    I don't like you, and I don't even know which one to buy if I were to buy one because you won't even tell me what the differences are. That's crap.

    I hope the V1 trounces you and you die a painful death

    I got the same headache from Escort about software upgrades and revisions. I paid $50 to have my escort fixed 2 months out of warranty and got it back and I just sold it on ebay. I was so pissed off at the customer service reps for not being able to tell me anything about my detector. I wanted a V1 and I guess I found a reason to change. I said in another post the Belscort reps must be working for Mike Valentine and they are doing a great job of getting V1 business. [/quote]
