Top reviews from the United States
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
After owning this product for over a year, and after having also used the 8500IX and the Redline, I have to say that this is still a solid little detector. It doesn't have the best range, and it lacks a lot of convenience features, but for ~$200 detector, this thing really isn't bad. Decent range and sensitivity, cheap, fairly effective. I think this would make a great first detector for anyone.
Top reviews from other countries
The first one only stopped functioning when my sons were rear ended, the impact damaged the unit. There's nothing that can be done about lazers, once they spray you they have you. K and Ka bands are detected from quite a distance. Driving is all about caution anyway.
I can't say enough positive things about Escort radar detecors!
SO AFTER ALL THIS I SENT IT BACK TO AMAZON & BOUGHT A WHISTLER INSTEAD!
