Hey guys.....it's been a while since I've been in the forum, but simply put that's because I bought a Beltronics Vector 995 a half a dozen years ago and it served me VERY well. It saved me numerous times (only one speeding ticket during that time, which was the result of an "Instant On" interstate encounter as I came over a hill during a "Labor Day TRAP").
Anyway, it did serve me really well....BUT.....it was a 6 or 7 year old unit that operated on the older (S7? I believe) platform that was NOT "upgradeable". And living in the greater Cincinnati area, I couldn't even really use the detector much the past couple of years thanks to all of the "Traffic Flow Monitoring" equipment in the area that they have around the by-pass and on the interstates, etc. So I decided that it was time to get a newer, upgradeable, AFFORDABLE detector with TSR software that offered high end performance.
I really can't afford the "higher end, GPS enabled" detectors....and since I primarily use it for highway/interstate driving and don't mind putting up with a few false alerts here and there, I figured that a good "high performance (detection wise), mid tier (features wise/non GPS)" type detector would suit me just fine.
So what can users of this radar detector tell me about your experiences with the X50 Black? Are you happy with it and it's performance? Did I make a good purchase/decision?
