    Default Laser Detection

    Alright I must say, I cannot see why people keep saying that the X50 is not a good laser detector. Over the last week, I have been driving past laser traps in order to test my blinder, and have been shot over 15 times with laser. Everytime, the blinder and the X50 alerted laser at the same time, and the alert stayed constant as long as the officer was shooting me.

    laser is an iffy thing it all depends on, height of the detector, weather and traffic conditions, etc how steady the cops holding the laser if he's all over the place chances are you may get an advanced warning from other cars infront?!!!

    Some people were trashing the X50s Laser sensivity but with what i heard and i seen in videos, i think its really good to detect Laser.

    The X50 does great about laser and so does my 995 but it can't compare to the V1

    Same.

    If you saw my previous test videos on laser detection with the big three the V1 alerted to headlight and license plate shots at 100 feet. The other two detectors(rx65 and x50) didn't alert when shot at that close.

    Now in real case scenarios my X50 did alert when I was shot with laser every single time.

    I will even admit that the Valentine has better laser range as all the Valentines I tested where all able to see laser from a longer range Vs all the rest.
