hi guys, i bought a bel express 795 back in '05 around the time when they came out. it served me well for quite a while and i put it away when i got my new car and kinda forgot about it. well..i decided to dig it about a month ago and noticed that it didn't work at all like it used to!! passed several cops who had people pulled over and never went off. do they just wear out and quit picking up radar??
next scenario.. b/c of the story above i went on a gamble and bought a cobra esd 7100 off of amazon for $31. now i knew cobra didn't have a good rep. when i bought it, but i was just looking for something inexpensive b/c of money constraints that would at least do somewhat better than my "worn out" Bel 795.
not long after i bought the cobra it picked up a city cop running k-band maybe 1/4- 1/2 mile away w/ traffic in the area. seemed like a descent amount of time for me to be able to slow down if i had been speeding. well.. that changes today when i was fixing to turn down my girlfriends driveway and what do i see.. a county cop sitting there obviously clocking traffic going past and it doesn't go off until i turn down her driveway and am facing him!!?? what the heck? how does it go from working descent to working crappy?
