Hi, new poster here but long time RD user. My use dates back to Whistler Spectrum in 1984 so I got somes miles on me..LOL
Want to get RD for my two college kids. Daughter got a ticket about 3 weeks ago at college town; will fight that one out with lawyer. In mean time, time to get her a detector.
I use a X50 in my car and have been satisfied with it but want to spend less for theirs and still get decent performance. Spent yesterday reading various posts here about V955 and Pro 78.
Two days ago I bought V955 a local big box store on-line for 159.00 plus tax. They screwed order up and had to give me $24 gift card to use on future purchases there.
I still need to get one more RD and was leaning toward getting the Pro 78 via on line purchase a big box store CC which is on sale for $129, but it is listed as out of stock and not available. Anyone know if they ever stock it?
Anyway, need advise which one will provide the least false alarms and performance for the $s. Local CC has V955 on line sale for $169; with my $24 gift card, it will cost me $145 plus tax.
One thing that I like with the V955 is the push button ON/OFF. The rotary ON/OFF/Volume controls on Pro 78 and X50 seem to be a source for problems. My X50 is having problems in this area.
Thanks for the help.
