I've heard that one of the best is the Valentine One radar detector. I've never used one, so I can attest to it. The last one I had was a whistler, it worked great until I left it in my black car in 110°F California day. Kinda cooked it. ::

$400 might be expensive, but so are speeding tickets :).

I wish I bought one of those radar detectors years ago. It might have saved me over a $1000 in speeding violations, time spent doing traffic school, and increased insurance costs. Damn, that is really depressing when I think about how much I gave to the state for driving with my lead shoes on ;).

You have to take into consideration the lifetime upgrade policy that Valentine One comes with. If there are new technologies developed your investment is still good, as they will upgrade you for free.

I dont think there is a radar detector that works very well. I have a friend who swears by his Valentine One, we both drive too fast on the same road, and in the last i've had 2 tickets and he has had 3. Save your money and just try to stay behind someone going just as fast as you are :)

I have only used Cincinnatti microwave detectors with the exception of one I bought at Best Buy and I brought it back what a POS. and then bought the 8500 Passport the web page is Escort Here in Minnesota they are using more Laser and a unit using X band and a gun picture...Too late if they have you then no mater what detector you have IMHO. I have just been setting the cruise for 5 over max and the other motorists fly by me!
