    Default Best for under $200

    I am on a very tight budget, and would like to know what is the best performance for price under $200. I have researched heavily the Whistler Pro 73, Cobra 9780 and 9700. How do these 3 models stack up against each other and what other models should i look into? Please help me, i'm really new to all the radar detector stuff, and i i live in NC if that helps any?

    Out of those three, I would recommend the Whistler. See our test results here:

    But there are other options out there. For example I have heard good things on here about the BEL 795...

    Edit: BTW, we would appreciate it if you only post your question in one forum, "double posting" is frowned upon...

    Did someone delete my post? Anyways, I wouldnt recommend a cobra, I would lean more toward a BEL, they know what they are doing.

    No, he double-posted in the BEL/Escort forum too, that's the one you answered

    Stay away from the Crapras. No matter how many features they throw at you, they're still substandard crap.

    Go with the Whistler Pro-58/73 or a Bel Express series detector.

    Agreed...

    Whatever you do.... don't get a Cobra. You will just be creating falses for other Radar Detector users. You know how much you love falses. :wink:

    Out of those three, go with the Whistler. I am becoming a fan of Beltronics though. I don't know about the lower end stuff, but my RX65 is very high quality.

    ^Really? Last time I went to my moms, the RX65 was acting a little sketchy...
