    Default Bel vs Escort - What are the REAL differences?

    I've seen many different perspectives on this. Some say that the Escort is very silly and annoying to use and weaker on K and X or something, others say that the Escort gets better Ka range than anything else.

    Can you guys list all the REAL differences between them?

    Escort 8500 X50:

    Option of a blue display
    Better threat display
    Rotary volume control
    Lack of display slant makes it more suitable for mounting high



    Bel RX65:
    Voice Alerts
    Ku band
    Better suited to right-side drive cars than the X50.

    Default Too quiet

    I think that the unit is to quiet. If you drive with the radio up at all it is difficult to hear the unit. I sent Esocrt an email about it and they said to adjust the Tone Volume which I had already done. That is an improvement they could use!!!

    Default Because we are foolish!

    ...Because it was there! If they had an x50 green for $30.00 more fools like me would probably pay for it. LOL
