I have a cheap Cobra, I think thats what it is. I think it "works" alright. It gives me a lot of false alarms but gets the job done. Your best radar detector is your own judgment.

google for radar roy, radartest.com.. there was another one i think.. get anice beltronics one. spend like $200. the cheap cobras work 'ok' at best..

take my recent drive home from cali tokansas.. i got 3 speeding tickets, and all three were where the cop was hiding radarin everyonethat drove by. a good detector would have picked up the reflections off the cars in front of me. mine didnt. THREE DAMN TIMES!

cobra bad, beltronics good. im gettin one of those expensivein dash installed units next time :TU:

I have had a passport escort 7500 for about 6 years now without too many issues. works decently, false alarms here and there. lately it has started to chirp K band when it is cold out in the mornings. i know there is no radar around when I am driving down my road. It gets annoying.

Next radar detector is going to be a Valentine One.

nope doesn't matter what type of detector it is, there all illegal. But you can drive for me a couple minutes to MD and get on. If you ever look at a Best Buy or Circuit city ad. The have them listed but always say not legal in VA and I think DC.

As Transex said, these are the best units. My friend's dad had one in the mid 90's in Quebec where they are illegal. He let me borrow it for a whle and I lent it to my parents for a trip. They were so impressed that when they got back from their trip, they bought 2 of them the next day (1 for me :) )
Since buying those 2, we've lent one to friends in Europe. After trying them those friend bought 3 units for their family (one of them commutes over 100 miles each way per day and previously lost his liscense for speeding, and the other one has a few Porches that he likes to play with on the backroads)

Yes I know that was a long read, but its the best way for me to show how good these really are... once you get the arrows, you'll never want anything else. Other than the V1, theres the custom intalled ones but those ar 1000 per car, vs the V1 which is 400$...
