This review is from: WHISTLER XTR-420 Radar / Laser Detector
Pros: Battery powered, good battery life, not bad for $80, has some cool features.
Cons: Range. Usually when it goes off, the cop is very close. I was driving one day on a 2 lane road(Each lane going in different direction) and it alerted K band (Cops in my area use K band the most) and I looked up and the cop was less then 50 feet away coming my way and the signal strength was at the weakest level and didn't increase at all as the cop past. The second he past, the radar stopped alerting. This has happened numerous times.
Other Thoughts: You get what you pay for. For $80, it's not too bad and has a lot of cool features, but if you want to be alerted a good ways before you see a cop, I'd say pay a couple hundred $$ more and get a Beltronics or even a higher end Whistler. Maybe I received a lemon, but this was my second unit, as the first one did the same thing, but I had to return it because the battery function didn't work at all.
