    Default Whistler DE 1734

    I am thinking of getting a whistler 1734 and are they good? Is the 1730 good too? Any problems with these models? Does it pick up radar signals pretty well? :?:

    I would save your money and use it toward the PRO 58 or 73 instead if you are wanting to buy a Whistler unit.

    Do they detect police radar better? Is it better than model DE 1730?

    Absolutely, the 2 models you are looking at are Whistler's low end units.

    The 1730 is a decent backup plan. It has good range on X and K, fairly low falsing, and just enough on Ka. Never been lasered with it. Don't know about the 1734.

    If it's a primary you're looking at, go with the Pro-58. It's the same thing as the Pro-73, but $50 cheaper and without the really nice display.

    I may just save my money and buy an escort x50 8500 because I see they get excellent reviews but the price will really damage my wallet.

    You can't go wrong with an X50, RX-65, or V1.

    If cash is really an issue and you don't want to spend $300+, the Bel Vector 995 is a good detector, as is the RX-55.

    There's a good plan! All of the models that bcorby mentioned are excelent. The Whistler Pro units are decent for the money, but they are terrible about Ka falsing.

    Is the Bel Vector 995 as good as, or better than the escort x50 8500?
