Looking on EBay I can find an Escort 8500, sold through Escort for the price of 150.
However, it is "manufacturer refurbished."
It comes with a 6month warranty as opposed to the full year. I have never bought a detector before and am looking to purchase one as a gift. Anyone have any advice ?
My other option is to get a brand new 955 Beltronics.
I assume the Escort is better but HOW much better?
In this case do you recommend the better, refurbished product, or the lesser quality but brand new product?
Thank you guys for all your help.
