This review is from: WHISTLER Radar / Laser Detector with Compass
Pros: Excellent Ka-band sensitivity Good laser sensitivity Fast reaction times to instant-on and quick trigger Easy to read display Can turn on/off individual bands, POP, SWS Good filtering algorithms Very accurate signal meter
Cons: K-band sensitivity could be better No auto dim mode X-band falses sometimes show up as a K-band signal if X-band is OFF.
Other Thoughts: Overall this is a good radar detector. Ka-Max mode performs very well, and has quick response (almost Valentine V1-like reaction time) to instant on and quick trigger. The fast response makes it easy to determine whether the signal being used is constant on or instant on/quick trigger.
Filtering does a good job of weeding out false alarms without making the detector deaf. This detector also identifies the frequency being used on Ka-band and the PPS rate of laser helping one to determine whether the threat on these two bands are real or not.
Unlike many other radar detectors, this unit has a signal meter that is very accurate and reacts well to obstructions in real time with no delay on ramp up, full strength and ramp-down signals.
K-band could be a bit more sensitive but it does the job - also turning off X-band sometimes will cause an X-band false to show up as K-band. I leave X on as there are so few X-falses anyway.
Overall, a very well thought out radar detector
