Hi. I've been reading around here for quite some time now and am ready to purchase a detector. I've riding around with one of these for quite some time now http://www.radioshack.com/product.as...uct_id=22-1697 and it really sucks....falses alot etc. It was given to me by a friend by the way. Anyway I'm on the poor college student's budget so I really dont want to spend too much money. I was considering, instead of 'the big three', perhaps the rx55, the vector 995, or even the whistler pro 73. I was leaning toward the whistler as it did fairly well on Roy's site and is obviously the cheapest. I was just wondering if it is a wise choice to shy away from a more popular name such as bell to the less praised whistler brand. Keep in mind i am on a tight budget and I dont really speed too much, I just want to feel safe during those times that traffic is doing 70 in a 55 and I dont want people to give me the finger as they pass me for driving too slowly. I live in Queens, NY btw but primarily spend my time in LI so there is a lot of LIE travel time. Any input is appreciated.
