    Default Solo S2 Owners

    How is this detector with the battery power?

    Have you compared performance with other detectors?

    I want it as a backup.

    Pls post any reviews or comments

    (I know people with them[remember I drive motorcycles]... I DO NOT personally own one.. but I will say the following...)

    The thing eats batteries in most peoples opinion... and I mean literally eats them.

    Performance vs. other cordless... it is top of the line.

    However vs. its corded counterparts most feel it does have a small 'loss' persay in detection, especially when comparing it to (the corded) detectors in the price range (it is rather expensive) .

    Overall it really is a good(great) detector for being cordless(id say the best)... I would say for your average speeder it is more then capable, especially in non-POP areas(most of the US)...

    But if you dont have to go cordless... (you own a bike or something?), and you are looking for what I would call comparable detection I would say save $$ and buy yourself a V995...

    If you own bikes: Where RD's become a hassle especially when switching between them or battery drain issues, then its premier IMO.

    The above (reply) was my opinion on the detector (from fellow motorcyclists/RD owners).... The following is actual RadarRoy testing outcomes to let you compare:

    Yeah thats what I said... unless you have a motorcycle where cords become a hassle and you just need somthing portable, just go corded with the V995.

    But again if you need to go cordless, its (the Solo) the best you will find.

    Yeah, I think you will be very pleased with its detection. Overall if your dead-set on cordless (mainly for being prtable) it will give you top-of-the line detection.

    as a back up i would like it to be easy to transport

    V1 will still be the main detector

    maybe use the S2 around the city...damn school bus drones
