    I have a cheap Cobra Detector. I have it mounted to the over head part where the garage door opener is. It is nice and out of the way. I have used a detector ever since I started driving ten years ago.

    Word to the young, it doesnt make you invisible. My detectors have been very reliable in letting me know when I am getting a ticket.

    Props for honesty!

    I gave up on RD's a while back. Weird thing is I haven't had a ticket in a while now. I guess I just slow down. Faster just means I wait longer at the light. And SC troopers work hard at nabbing with their instant on. And as you say, my detector told me every time I got a ticket. And these days, w/the black box, it's too easy to get pwned if in an accident....IMO.

    I home sick feel like poop:mad:.... wifey holding the fort down over there!:eek:




    This review is from: Cobra XRS 9745 Voice Alert 15 Band Radar/Laser Detector with New DigiView Data Display, Pop Mode Radar Gun Detection Mode and Digital Compass (Electronics)

    Ok, let me start off by saying, " for a hundred bucks, it aint too bad!" It doesn't have the best range, but it does have a good deal of features to play with. It actually doesn't false too much more than other detectors I own (bel 955, whistler pro 78). Definately has less range than those two, but at least it mutes itself without having to push a button like the bel! That to me is a big issue. Reaching up to the window to push a little button while driving can be a little hazerdous! HaHa. It does have nice tones to it's alarms unlike the screeching bel and is fairly loud. It does have a nice coiled cord unlike the whistler which uses a straight one that flops around in front of my radio. The display can be tough to see in daylight at times. It seems to me, Cobra is just putting a product out there to make max profit! Where bel and whistler seem to put more emphasis on quality and performance. And the prices reflect it. That's really the difference here! Like I said, it's not bad for the price, and it really does detect radar albeit from less range than most. So if you're budget doesn't allow more expensive units, I'd say this isn't a bad choice.
