    Default Interestinmg thoughts about the SML Review Data

    From Roy's Website:

    X Band:
    8500X50= 4.5 Miles
    SR7= 4.2 Miles
    Difference of 7.15%

    Bel 995=4.1 Miles

    K Band:
    8500X50= 4.3 Miles
    SR7= 4.0Miles
    Difference of 7.5%

    Bel 995=3.9 Miles



    Ka Band:
    8500X50= 4.3 Miles
    SR7= 4.0Miles
    Difference of 7.5%

    Bel 995=4.0 Miles



    Now, The Escort SR7 is the remote mounted unit from Escort. It I think uses the same antena as the original Escort Passport 8500 (Non X50). Considering that it has a disadvantage because it is mounted low, where does Escort get off advertizing that the X50 has up to 50% more range than the 8500. It just doesn't seem right. Am I missing something? Also, the Bel 995 has the same range as the SR7. Is this detector the same as the 8500 in a different box? Any thoughts???

    I actually think its the same box, with the X50 stamped on and a different firmware, but noboy asks me.
