hi there im mike and im new the the radar forums i currently have a 1995 monte carlo ls and i am going to get a radar detector no questions asked and ive narrowed it down to the ESCORT Passport 8500 X50-blue or the BEL RX65 Pro Radar/Laser Detector and i am just wondering if some people that have one or the other could tell me what they like or dislike about them i want to learn more about each of them before i decide and i know they are owned by the same company
Do some light reading on here - these questions have been answered.
But, Welcome to the board - get them both and you'll love em. I believe most prefer the x50 due to the display but if Ka is huge in your area - definately the 65
there's like 2 threads stickied in this forum :? , but anyway i'll have to say get the x50, it's a very good overall detector and easy to program your own settings, and you can get it in blue if it matches your interior gauges
I have the RX65 and love it. More people own the X50 (mostly because it is sold in many stores where as the RX65 is not) because of this your going to get more people saying to go with it. In the end you should really just ick one. I like the Rx65 because it is great on Ka is not as awkwardly shaped as the X50 (which is a bit long in my view). It is really up to you thought it is not that one will save you when the other will not. If one of them saves you i'm sure the other one would have too.
i would buy from radarbusters.com as everyone on this site can tell you they are the best at what they do.
Welcome to the forums
Never had any experience with the RX65 but I can speak for the X50.
The X50 is an outstanding detector and has never failed me. It's saved
me so many times I've lost count. It's very easy to program on the fly so
if you want to change something such as your display while sitting at a
red light or stop sign you can and very fast I may add. Also, The K and KA
range is unbeatable for the money. I've had 2.5 mile KA hits before
with the X50 on the interstate and as we all know, KA isn't the easiest
band to pick up. As I said, I really can't speak on behalf of the RX65
but I do love my X50 and am very satisfied
you will get and equal amount of people going each way.
if you are not concerned with money then I'm not sure what to say, but if you want a better value go with the rx65. It is the same as the escort, but cheaper.
I got an rx65 for that reason. Why spend an extra $100 when you don't have to?
Rx65=$329.00...X50 Red =299.00....How is the rx65 cheaper??
