    Default help?

    I'm a new user and I recently received a Solo S2 as a gift. Evrything i read says the Escort 8500 X50 is the best. Should i take the Solo S2 back and exchange it or is it also a good detector?

    if you don't need the Wireless option maybe you should consider it, but too me the Solo looks like a good detector (but I never tryed it)

    someone on this forum once said about the COrdless detector

    Read the test results on Roy's site on the Escort Solo 2.

    I would return it and get the X50 the performance is going to be so much better and you will not have to worry about the batteries getting weak and your detection range getting shorter as the batteries wear out.

    You will be muh better off if you return it for the Escort 8500 X50...Only go cordless unless that is your only option and atleat get a power cord to save money..

    Cordless detectors will not have the same range of a corded detector
