I recently purchased "the best cordless" one out there. It's the Escort S2. I bought it at Car Toys. So far I'm happy with it.

I have both the escort 8500 and the Valentine. "different cars" they both rock. They work about as well as oneanother, but how the valentine tells radar positioning is awsome, and helpful.

I'll be the first to say I have one that's NOT an escort or V1. Next best though. Bel Vector 940. Got it on ebay for 140. Not a bad deal and has saved me many a times.

Escort and Bel are the same company, but I was told that Escort is the superior product.

Escort is superior but for the money you're saving with Bel I think it's worth it. I gives me ample warning so the escort wouldn't help me anymore than the bel already is...

i got a bel 950 that i have had for like 3 years and it works great. for the money it's a great product. the way look it at nothing is gonna help with instant on laser so why pay a ton of money for something that is not 100% foolproof.

Cobra here, used, from Ebay.

Paid for itself already. Odd thing happened the other day though. I was braking for an onramp when I got a laser alert. Normally, this means that if one is in violation, one is about to be violated - the alert comes too late to be any good. But I was braking for a sharp bend and going much slower than the limit, plus there was mild traffic too. I wonder what possessed whoever was lurking around to have a look at me -- the car or curiosity or boredom? No lights, no ticket in mail, no nothing. Go figure.

How does everyone with the valentine one like theirs? I cant decide whether to get the valentine one or 8500 x50. I heard the escort has false alarms from the trubo spool

That's the funniest thing I've ever heard :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: you should kick that person in the balls.

The Escort 8500 is a great radar detector, I've had one for years and it's always served me well.
