    Default Choice to make...

    Hi everyone,
    I am a newbie on this forum and I have to say it is very addictive :shock:
    I am about to buy my first RD but don't want to spend too much money on it.
    I want a cordless and I am between two:
    - Whistler DE1788
    - PNI Silver Bullet II

    Which one do you think is the best knowing that I don't want to go over 200$?

    Thanks and long life to this forum.

    a used 8500 or X50

    EDIT: oh sorry i didnt see that you wanted cordless

    out of your price range but best cordless is solo S2

    there is a used one on ebay for $210 (although we dont recommend ebay)

    The whistler would likely yeild better performance, but more false alerts than the PNI. Another unit you might want to consider that's in the price range is the Bel Express 946 Cordless.

    http://radarbusters.com/products/beltronics/946.asp

    It's pretty close to the PNI in X and K band, but a little beind in Ka. It's included in a review here:

    http://radartest.com/article.asp?articleID=8520

    You've gotta kinda watch the PNI products, they won't alert to a Ka signal until it's present for a full second.

    If you need further help, i'll answer what I can!

    Ok so basically I'd better put a couple of bucks on top and get the solo s2 right?
    Does it matter if it doesn't have the POP mode detector?
    Tks again.

    i know Pop isnt much of a threat but dont take my word for it

    i myselft am trying to get a solo s2 but not at full price($300+).

    with that amount... put a little more you get a V1 or just get an Rx65

    Looked at the RX 65 and it looks really good and effective.
    I just found new RX 65 for 210$ I think this is a great price so might go with this one even if have to say bye to cordless...

    You won't like it but ebay. The guy has 35 in stock and has good feedback. What do you think?

    after the GOL, I think the RX 65 is the best radar to get (yes i think its more worth it then a V1)

    i am really not sure

    if i was in your position i would get it just because of the price

    BUT buying from ebay you dont get a warranty and you dont know if the product is bogus or not

    thats a tough choice bud!

    i say buy from radarroy(owns this forum and radarbusters.com), he will give you a good deal on the RX65

    although not as cheap as ebay, you will get the best customer service and support
