    Well, so far we have a leader with 4 people voting for "Vector 895, RX55, Vector 965"

    I can't really see a difference between the 895 and the 965 other than the 965 comes with interchangeable colored face-plates. Maybe I am missing something, but these appear to be the same detector.

    The RX55 has the same features, but it looks like you cannot turn POP off according to the manual. The RX55 also has VG-2 detection that you can turn on or off, and can display the vehicle voltage.

    The RX55 and 965 are LaserPro 905 compatible, but the 895 does not say if it is. Can anyone confirm if the 895 can work with the 905?

    Your poll was a bit complex for me Raven but yeah, there's no way of disabling POP on the '55 but I have never had a POP alert, false or otherwise on it.

    Would also say the 895 was closer to the RX65 than the RX55 is [external cases aside].

    Another random observation: The RX55 also has a different sound quality to the RX65, even though it uses the same alert tones, it sounds 'tinnier', more like a digital watch tone and it doesn't go as loud. Wonder if it uses a peizo speaker so something.

    Sorry...

    The main reason for the poll, was because I really couldn't see a difference between the 895 and the 965, and the RX55 seemed pretty close as well. But there was a huge price difference:

    965: $249.95
    RX55: $229.95
    895: $199.99

    They just seemed out of order for pricing vs. options and performance
