First post here, but I have been reading and researching for some time now. I have had a Whistler Pro-78se for a year now and have never had a problem. It has always performed great but decided to try something different based on the reviews here.
Anyways like my title says I ordered a new refurb 8500 non x50 from Escorts eBay store, open the box plug it in and take it for a spin. Within 1 minute of turning it on it gives a self calibrating alert followed by service required.
My question is to all, should I send it back and upgrade to the refurb x50 model, since I'm within the two week not fully satisfied window. Or should I just send this one back and hope for better reliability next time. I have read the old 8500 refurbs were hit or miss.
Thanks in advance, any advise before I ship this back is appreciated.
