I've read a few stickies, done some research, looked around on guysoflidar. I've also read on a few other sites that did shootouts for the best Radar Detector under $99, under $299, and etc. Most of those tests were well over a year old! But, all-in-all, I have come to the conclusion that I really want an Escort Passport 8500 x50. However, I only want to spend $150, and I don't want to take the chance of buying CRAP on eBay...so the 8500 x50 is out.
I was hoping that the experienced members here could recommend me a nice radar detector for $150 or less. I prefer to buy brand new, preferrably from Roy (I've seen good reviews here).
A little bit of what I might find important in a detector:
- Distance is key (thats why I want an 8500 x50 so bad)
- Good X, K, Ka band detection
- Silent, Ramp Up, Many Lights, and other features are NOT that important to me.
I just want something that will alert me a long ways before I am targeted.
Thanks for any help.
