This thread is something that is long overdue.
First I would like to thank forum member jdreynss for his recent write-up that kicked started this much needed thread.
Hereís the link for those interested:
The purpose of this thread is to allow each member to state his or her opinion on which detector(s) they think are best and why.
This thread is designed to be a constructive and informative thread. The rules are simple and as followed.
1. Only 1 post per member. ANY subsequent posts will be deleted. This is not a debate or discussion thread. This is a guide for newbies and anyone else in the market for a new detector.
2. NO bashing others opinions. This is one thread that everyone can state what they like and dislike about detectors that they have used. Please keep it to what you have personally used, not what others have used.
3. Be as thorough as possible. The more information the better. For example, where you drive, meaning in a large city or rural area. Include mounting locations, performance, (or lack thereof). Any problems or issues. If you have had to return it or repair it state so. The more information good or bad the better. As a whole there are users with good and bad experiences with all detectors so please share.
4. Any bashing others opinions or thoughts WILL get your post deleted. Do not post things such as ďI had brand<> and it sucked. I now have brand<> and itís the best.Ē Or ďget a <> itís the best.Ē That is useless to everyone and tells us nothing.
As you get new detectors or if you have issues with your current one, please update your post. Keep everyone informed. If there is a pattern developing with certain brands or models, weíll see it. Include links to other threads also. The more information we all have the better.
Regardless of whether we agree or disagree on a certain brand or model, we can all agree that the more information we have at hand, the better informed we are in making our choice of what the best detector is for you.
