    Default looking for direct comparison between x50 and bel pro 65

    I've been hanging around and ready posts and I have become very curious of the escort after purchasing the bel. The bel 65 does a good job for me but I keep wondering is the x50 has better range on ka. Has anyone done a real world comparison between the two and do you want to share it with us. I want to hear from those who have owned or do own both.
    Thanks

    We have photo radar where i live, and for whatever reason, 2 RX65s out of 3 broke with some SERVICE REQUIRED flashing... I think i also saw some CAL thing as well.

    The X50 has worked flawlessly so far. As for photo radar performance (Which really requires a sensitive detector), the X50 detected a good 5 seconds earlier than the V1, while the RX65 failed to detect the radar 2 times out of 10 (i have videos of this). I dont know why the RX65 failed to beep... i suspect it was because of the eventual SERVICE REQUIRED (So maybe both units were already faulty to start, hence the testing was skewed already).

    But long story short, on photo radar, the X50 warns earlier than the V1. We don't have any rear shooting radar cops here, so the rear antenna is virtually pointless... all targets come from the front, and in fact i'd rather not know about radar in the rear since it would always be false.

    Very well said nvr2fast. Lets see some more videos from you just to show all the Valentine fans how a real detector works.

    I myself do not have the RX65 but I would love to try one out real bad just can't put up anuff money right now with the way gas prices are but some day I hope to test it out along with my friends V1 with pop 2.

    Keep them good comments rolling we really need more like you on this board for sure.

    I've used both and haven't really been able to tell much difference. IMO the BEL may pick up KA a little faster but you can't go wrong with either unit...

    Well-said because he agrees with you.

    Yeah, let's go watch a "real detector" work! I have both the x50 and latest V1, and that was one of the most ridiculous statements I've yet read on this forum. You obviously have not changed.
