    "No Name Detector"???

    I came here hoping to see what an honest and informed member's thoughts and opinions regarding these two detectors were....not to see the usual fanboy worship and discussion...

    Re: Why ONTARIO is different...

    I'm glad we agree on this. I was expecting something more along the lines of what you were dealing to Chris. Not that he didn't deserve it, and I understand the desire to "smack down" (as you put...

    Re: Why ONTARIO is different...

    The same would need to be said to nine_c1 and others who are just as guilty (if not more so) of being rude, condescending jerks as what some perceive Chris as being.

    Your way would definitely be much more cost effective and financially friendly than spending XXX amount of $$$ on a "Simmons LRF 600 laser range finder"....
  5. Re: Anyone remember the bel 985 model before the 995 replaced it

    As did the V995. At least for a while.

    I had the V995, and the first few years it was produced it had the S7 platform (mine did, and I bought it in '06). At some point, they started producing...

    Re: Escort 8500 X50 Black & Beltronics Pro300

    I got a really good price on my 8500 X50 Black, so that played a HUGE part in my decision as well. It was down to these two particular units, though, and I did want the blue LED.....so the fact that...

    Re: Escort 8500 X50 Black & Beltronics Pro300

    It depends on which version or upgrade the X50 has. It should not be cheaper and if it is then I would question it. Does it (X50) have new bubble lens, it changed in late 2011-early 2012 I believe...

    Re: A little disappointed with Escort today...

    Thank you, branedamag....I've more or less come to that conclusion as well. It is odd that when I turned off the TSR, I would pick up the faintest of weak K band signals for a brief second....but I...

    Re: Escort 8500 X50 Black & Beltronics Pro300

    Other than USA mode, everything you said applies to the 8500 X50 Black as well.

    I'm not denying that the Bel Pro300 is an outstanding detector, I have no doubt that it is. But saying "hands down"...

    Thank you

    "Speed Signs" are generally not a good source to test a detector , unless you test it within hours of your previous tests. The battery and/or solar power the signs use can weaken...

    Re: A little disappointed with Escort today...

    With the TSR software enabled, the detector is dead. No alert at all.

    With the TSR software DISABLED....there is the tinest and faintest of "K Band" detection. But it's one bar, spread out, as...

    A little disappointed with Escort today...

    I'll be honest: When I feel like a company/product deserves to be praised.....I'll do just that.

    But likewise....when I feel like a company/product deserves to be trashed....I'll do that as well....

  16. Re: Just picked up the ESCORT PASSPORT 8500 X50 BLACK!

    Yeah, that would be interesting to see. My guess is that it will perform very admirably, and comparably to those two. Well, judging from my short-lived experience thus far, that's what I would...

  18. Re: Would you be interested in purchasing a new RD with Arrows from Escort?
