    When it comes to radar detectors, Quality comes with price. I don't think your going to find anything amazing for under 150-200 dollars.

    I've got a $100 Cobra that works like crap. I've heard that the 300-400$$ Passport detectors work good.

    The midrange Beltronics units offer the best price to performance and in most cases meet the needs of typical users. Plan to pay above $150 but you don't have to pay $300.

    Unless you are in VA, DC, a professional driver working in the US, or Canadian, there is little need to consider it instead of the lower model.

    ive got a v1 and couldnt even tell you how many times its saved me. It has definitely paid for itself already, and gives me plenty of peace of mind.

    Anyone have any luck with any of the new GPS enabled detectors? Also, what about the $200 Radio Shack Bell that got really high marks in the 2005 MotorTrend review? Sorry for bringing back a dead thread to life..
