    Default Re: Escort Max - DUDE or DUD ?

    Update: Now that I have had much more time and many more miles put on my 2nd (exchanged) Max, I would have to say that it is rated AVERAGE. Maybe a C+! Sort of miss my V1 and Redline now. I am hoping that the 1.7 update and later ones will vastly improve the Max, but I am a dreamer...Out of $549.00 I guess...

    Hope you can still get your money back or swap even for a Redline.

    I have bought different detectors over the years to see for myself which I like. Nothing wrong with that.

    IMO dud. OLED display sure looks nice, but it's not gonna improve your detection capabilities. You're paying for a flashy device with lots of features, but not the best performance.

    DUD. I tried a Max2. Too many issues to list (see escortforum). I'd take a 9500ix any day over a Max/Max2.

    After getting the itch to upgrade my 9500ix. I ended up getting an STi-R Plus.

    It is very nice. Still some annoyances, but no show stoppers.

    I for one like the Max. However, my other detector is a 7500 so the Max is a huge improvement over that one.

    Don't let CJ read that. He can't believe that I prefer an 8500 X50!

    I have the same opinion. Actually I go a step further and prefer the 8500X50 Black to the Max2.
    My humble observation(s) after evaluation of the 8500 X50 Black/Max2/Redline/V1 for our Rally Cars....
