    Default Decision Needed by 4/9/2005!!

    Whistler 1733 20.00

    Whistler 1748 42.00

    Cobra 9110 49.00

    Cobra 9300 89.00

    Cobra xrs9500 129.00

    All on clearance at Meijer Dept. Store. New in Wrapper/Box.

    Thoughts on purchasing one for my 70 year old dad? (I have on another thread just about the same topic...but for a BEL 925/935....)

    Thanks!

    I'm going to vote for one of the Cobras just because I got an XRS9700 for my girlfriend and she seems to like it. She claims that it has saved her a few times and she drives faster than I do. I used it myself for a couple of days and thought it was quite adequate. Unless I am mistaken, the models that you list should be built around similar circuitry.

    The 1748 is the way to go in my opinion. Whistler almost always has better detection of K and Ka bands to the rear than Cobra units. If you do decide to go with a Cobra, don't get the 9110, I had a 9210 (9110 with voice) and it was not nearly sensitive enough on K band.

    i own a whistler 1730 bought it for 39 plus tax it does its job in radar detection ka is kinda short maybe cause they use instant on radar but i like it the false alerts are normal for a cheap radar detector.

    Default Got it!

    Well CrazyVolvo...

    I purchased one on the internet for a good price of 69.00 NIB from a retailer (and not even on EBAY!) I did research on it..and it might be perfect for my dad. I will try it (I do have a V-1 Pop2) when I get it and see what I think about it!

    I hate the Whister pro 58. I bought that for my friend and all it ever does is false on vg-2 and Ka band. Go with a cobra.
