I just joined this forum and it seems like a wonderful resource! I've been doing a lot of research in the past few days and I was hoping to get some input on helping me narrow down my choice. This will be my first rd purchase in over 12 years. I will probably purchase online since the deals seem to be better than going to Best Buy, etc.
My first choice would be either the Escort 9500ix or the Bel GX65, but they are just really out of my price range. I'm really looking to spend as little as possible, and so I've whittled down my list to the following:
Escort 8500 X50
Escort 8500 refurb from Escort's ebay store
- I really don't know much about this model except it seems to be recommended here and the price is right...
Bel Pro RX65
Bel Vector 995
Whistler XTR 695SE
Whistler Pro 78SE
I live in NJ and drive mostly in this state with an occasional foray into NY, PA, or south. I drive a 2009 Ford Fusion. Not overly concerned with avoiding rdd's in VA or DC, as I could live with just turning it off if I'm ever driving through those areas. I guess I am looking for a unit that will warn me with enough time to slow down, and won't "desensitize" me with too many false alerts. I assume X band detection is still an issue since I'm in NJ...
I guess all of the units I've listed are quality and seem to be well received. Just wanted to see if any feedback might help me narrow down this list to one! Thanks for any help, it is much appreciated!
