This was found on the review of the Cobra 9955
Personally, it really doesn't matter to me how far a radar detector can alert to constant-on radar, if it can't consistently "see" brief trigger pulls of instant-on radar. I rate this capability higher than so-called "long-range" sensitivity. Like the Cobra XRS-9950, the XRS-9955/9960G is a little on the "slower" side to initially react and alert to instant-on radar. The Valentine One and the Whistler Pro 78/XTR-690/XTR-695 are the performance champs in this aspect of detector performance.
Why wasn't Belscort mentioned?
