I am trying to decide between Escort 8500 x50 Black vs. Beltronics Pro 300. My price range would be between these two and I don't think I will go higher than that (until finishing school ). I searched the internet a lot. Apparently the comparisons are between the same Escort but with the older Beltronics RX65, and nothing much with the Pro 300.
I know both are great RD's and from the same company. The escort has a great reputation, but I noticed some complaints about false alarms. The Pro is newer version and has some extra features as Voice alerts, but not enough feedback on performance, false alarms...etc.
I think both have almost the same range detection (correct me if I am wrong), but are they the same with hilly, curvy, back roads ?
I just can't make up my mind on which to buy, and I would greatly appreciate your inputs, experiences, and feedbacks.
