5 out of 5 eggsworks fine

Pros: I got this detector because it was cheap and had good reviews. It works fine and satisfies my curiosity about radar signals (intersections, speed signs, cops).

Cons: None yet.

Other Thoughts: I was just curious about where radar was in use in my town, and I drive by a sign that says "your speed is ..." every day so I figured I would get a cheap detector. It sees the radar from the speed sign from a long way off, and also sees radar at one intersection in town (?). I like being able to see when radar is in use.

1 out of 5 eggsWhat a disappointment

Pros: None

Cons: It didn't make any sound when I drove near a speed sign. When I saw the speed sign, it didn't make ANY sound. At the time the speed sign displayed my speed, it started to made a "beep", and that was all.......It was also silent when there was a cop with the gun speed on the road. When I was in his ranged, it started to made a "beep" again, and it was TOO late.

5 out of 5 eggsBE AWARE! THIS WORKS!

Pros: Detects cops that are looking to pull you over or driving around with lasers on. I have used many other speed detectors and this one is just as good as the best.

Cons: Detects things like car unlock switches thus it will beep when no cop is around but its got settings you can change to reduce this. Not every beep will be a cop, but it will make you watch out and drive slower!

Other Thoughts: I didn't want to spend a fortune on a laser detector then get pulled over for speeding I would have been mad.
Now its not going to save you from getting pulled over but it will warn you where cops are and when they set speed traps. Overall it is a superb laser detector and only requires operator to read manual and set settings when driver is on highway or city.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: It works. I'm not sure what the high-priced detectors do that this unit doesn't. I get ample warning of radar.

Cons: While driving in town, I get false alwarms caused by "red"lights and alarm systems that are engaged by businesses. It's comical at times. It's a minor inconvenience. "In-town" driving shouldn't involve exceeding a speed limit by a lot, so I'm not worried about false alarms.

Other Thoughts: I drive 2 hours a day round trip. 90% on I-75 at high speeds. This is a simple unit to detect speed traps. Interstates were designed for high-speed driving, and I drive the max at early hours before the crowds arrive. Still, I want to be warned if a zealous radar trooper is around. This unit gives ample warning.

4 out of 5 eggsPretty nice

Pros: 1. I haven't gotten a speeding ticket to date, using this product.
2. the police look at me when i go past them, because they know i know they are running radar.

Cons: the "f*** the police" sticker doesn't come with this model.

Other Thoughts: They should include a bumper sticker that says "if you can read this, i have a radar detector, and you should probably slow down."

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Buy!

Pros: Detects radars as its supposed to; (ones it has detected so far)
-Usual City police
-State Sheriffs
-"Speed Limit is XX MPH Your speed is XX MPH" Digital road signs
-And of course, any false alarms from convenience stores to those electric traffic road signs.

Lets you know when they're close, 1 to 3 red bars. 2 usually meaning you're a squint away from visual range. (At least from what I've experienced)

VG-2 protection is nice.

The "Quiet" button is very useful. It will beep once and wont repeat itself until a different detection.

Cons: Windshield mount could have been a little more secure. This detector comes with this small black piece of rubber to give better "stand off" balance against more slanted windshields. I found it incredibly difficult to put it through the windshield attachment. But it did give my detector a less "sluggish" look when finished.
The power plug was a little difficult to put through. Was afraid I was going to break my outlet. I use phone chargers and other devices from time to time without any problem, so this worried me a bit.
Does not remember settings, but pressing a button or two wont hurt if you can turn on your stereo blasting obnoxious music to annoy your neighbors/ other drivers. Also, would save you a ticket or two :)

Other Thoughts: Please note that in order to for YOUR detector to detect the cop, the cop must have HIS/HER radar (or other speeding detection device) ON.
[I've zipped by cops a few times without my detector going off. It wasn't on purpose, but I was not pulled over.]
Buy it! Save yourself a speeding ticket or two. But don't use it for speeding. Most people "accidently" have their foot on the pedal a few miles or so over the limit, the beep will keep you in check.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Value

Pros: I was headed for a sitting squad car with his radar on and it detected him about 1/2 mile before I made visual contact. It also detected a squad car approaching me from the rear. The indicator lights are clearly visible, and the adjustable volume can go over my car stereo or be shut off completely. Works just as well as the $200 products.

Cons: Seems to pick up false positives in commercial parking lots.

Other Thoughts: An excellent device at an excellent price.

4 out of 5 eggsHas paid for itself and then some

Pros: - Excellent on hwy mode
- Decent in City mode
- price was right ($35)

Cons: - in city mode lots of false positives, but that is to be somewhat expected

Other Thoughts: I didn't get this radar so that I CAN speed. I usually drive faster than the speed limit if I'm not paying attention. There's no doubt that this device has saved me from at least 3 tickets over the last year or so.
