Im not much of a speeder, im more of a mellow driver and only drive about 10k per year. Ive gotten 1 speedig ticket in my 15 years of driving. I just wanted a radar detector because I like to know where the cops are at. Also for those times when im not paying attention to the speed limit. I felt I didnt need the best detector on the market (gps ones) so I decided to get the Bel v995 for $230. It has good reviews and was voted best detector under $300. It was between the v995, bel rx65, and escort 8500 x50. Of course id like to save money if I can. But now I just found out escort sells refurbrished 8500 x50's for $200-$250. Now im having second thoughts, what do you guys think?
