    Default RX65 Filtering vs X50

    Hey everyone, I am going to be buying yet another detector to add to my arsonal. I am really looking at another x50 because of the 2K 2KA and 4X display. There are a few sections of my town that will show 1K from automatic doors, and if there are 2K I know that there is a cop ahead.

    I am wondering if the fitlering on the RX65 is superior that of the x50's. I have to admit that a part of me wants to try somthing new and go with the RX, but the ability to show 2K is a must.

    Filtering should be about the same between the two. I have heard that the X50 might POP false a little less, but don't know if there's any truth to that.

    Sethy,
    Wow if I am not mistaken you have had two V1's and two X50's one blue and one red this will be your fifth radar detector since January.
    Why don't you buy both the X50 and the RX65 and simply send back the loser.

    I haven't tried the X50 yet. But, I would thave to agree, filtering probably isn't very different between the two, and is likely almost the same, like most of the other features between these two.

    If you are planning on keeping it for a long time, then get the RX-65, so you'll have the Ku coverage when it comes out (but we all know you like to try different models, so you don't keep them long )

    But if you aren't too worried about selling/upgrading when Ku comes out, then get the X50. I like the looks of the X50 blue, IMHO it has a higher "cool factor". I like the "scanning dot" pilot mode that the RX-65 lacks, and you'll have the better multiple threat display...

    Jim

    Yea, its been a back and forth from the V1 to the X50, this time I just plan on keeping both. I NEED the multiple threat display that the RX lacks, or I would def buy the RX for the KU band.

    Bels have always had better range than Escorts, but they false a lot more too.
