LED, as in (L)ight (E)mitting (D)iode, versus laser-diode.
Why am I asking for a confirmation? -->
This popped-up on RR.net:
....and further, that this "head engineer" of Escort's laughed at the notion that various "internet hobbyist sources" could possibly offer any sort of correct information regarding their product.Originally Posted by 09 Milan
Now, I know that the ZR3 as well as the Blinder have been taken apart here on RD.net - and photographed for reference, too. And I know, from my own experience disassembling my ZR3, that it is indeed LED-based.
From all the current data on the ZR4, I'm inclined to believe my fellow "internet hobbyists" - that the ZR4 is LED-based, and in my discussions with '09 Milan, I've maintained that it is likely a "vocabulary" concern - and perhaps even company marketing-line issue - that's keeping "Jim at Escort" sticking to the line that the ZR4 is "diode-based," as in LED-based, without recognizing the fact that in the hobbyist community, "diode-based" has come to take on the connotation that the system uses laser-diode(s).
So, can anyone out there find definitive evidence that the ZR4 is LED-based?
