Hey guys just found this forum via the Radar Busters site and its great. Lots of info and I've been able to weed out some ideas I had about picking a new detector. I'm looking to replace an old whistler 17 something series I got about 5 or 6 years ago now. I've started traveling a lot more for work and Ive just put it off to long. I know you get what you pay for on these things but I'm a broke college student so I need to stay in the lower priced models so the STI or a nice Escort are out for the time being. I know Cobras are for the most part not up to par and I shouldn't waste the money. Right now I'm thinking either the Pro-78 or the Bel 940?
From what I've read on here and on the radar busters site the Whistler has more features but the bell may get a little better performance. I like the blue strobes of the 78 because I'm the stereo cranked up high way speeder but I think I care a little more about getting the best detector for the money. Both of them sitting around 140 right now. Any one have strong feelings one way or the other or used both??
Thanks for the help!
