Hi. I've been lurking around these boards for a while, ever since I realized my Cobra radar detector isn't going to save me from anything. Great boards you run here, I like the people, and I hope to come back more often. For those curious, I found the boards through google .
Anyways, I'm looking into a new detector. I'm really interested in the X50. However, $300 doesn't exactly fit my budget. I've been looking on eBay and I've seen some good deals, but I've read here that buying a radar detector on eBay is a bad idea simply because the manufacturer will NOT honor the warranty on it (they'll pull the "unauthorized retailer" crap, right?). The thing is, the X50's on eBay are well within the price window I am wiling to spend, between $175-$250. I've also read about how people will sell defective units on eBay, which worries me..
I guess the question I'm asking is: Is there anywhere I can get an X50 for just a little bit cheaper ( don't care about screen color) and where I won't have to worry about not being able to take it back if it's defective? Like I said, I'm willing to spend up to about $250, give or take a little.
