So I have decided to go ahead and shell out a decent amount of money on a radar detector. After numerous tickets (yes I know a radar detector doesn't mean I won't/can't get tickets but it will be, at the very least, a heads up/warning that I have never had) I figured each ticket cost me pretty much what a good detector is going to run me. If I could avoid one ticket (other than by driving slower ) the detector would have paid for itself... So i've been searching and trying to find the one that would fit my needs. I don't drive like a maniac all the time so I figured the best and most expensive detectors would just be over kill and a waste of money. I also didn't want a cheap detector with a shit load of false alarms and/or that claim to detect 34987562345709152 radars/lasers when most are now obsolete. I wanted one that focused more on the real world stuff currently being used. I have decided on the Beltronics RX65 https://www.beltronics.com/store/rx-65-red.html I may spring some extra dough for the blue display version because red, at night, starts to bug me. Which is why I can't stand the RSX gauge cluster, but that's another topic in itself lol... Anyway, what do you guys think of my choice? Any other suggestions for a detector around this price range? Also, what happened to the Valentine 1? A couple years ago, they were the top dog. After doing some research, it seems they are becoming out dated and not doing anything to keep up with the technology. Although still a great detector, it's being surpassed slowly but surely.
