Default Beltronics Pro RX65 vs Escort Passport 8500 X50 vs Valentine One

In the summer of 2005, the Veil Guy and his wife, Lisa, conducted an extensive real-world comparison of the three leading windshield-mount radar detectors.

At the time, each of were the flagship radar detector models offered by their respective manufacturers: the Beltronics Pro RX65 (BEL RX65), Escort Passport 8500 X50, Valentine One.

While some newer radar detectors have come along to establish their position as the current flagship models, each of these three radar detectors are still offered by their respective manufacturers and are still considered to be some of the best radar detectors ever made.

To this very day, Radar Roy believes this radar detector review to be one the best and most informative ever conducted. We simply call the ultimate radar detector review, perhaps you will too.

Default K40 Versus Other High End Radar Detectors

I personally had an older SS3000 remote installed in my vehicle and its performance did lag a bit behind these other radar detectors, even though the antenna was physically larger than the ones used in the other three: the Beltronics Pro RX65, Escort Passport 8500 X50, and the Valentine One (although I never received a ticket relying one).

A more recent model was formally reviewed and compared to another similarly priced model from Escort:

I'm looking to buy a new RD and hoping to pay about $150 or less. I bought a cobra 969 for sale last week for only $75 but after reading what people had to say about cobra rd's in general I reterned it. I remembered seeing a Whstler XTR 695 sale priced for $100 but their was only one and it was gone by the time I got back. I found a used K40 windshield mount rd for $80, as well as the XTR 695 for about $150 on Amazon. I was also considering an escort but I keep reading reviews on shopping sites that claim they tend to have mechanical issues and constantly need to be serviced... So anyways... In your opinion whats the best, most reliable RD I can get for my price range?

Re Escort - problems with quality.
