    the first time i saw this my friend had one and ive bought some before so i thought they dont really work since the other ones didnt but when my friend was approaching a police car we hadnt seen yet it alerted us and he slowed down but there was no trap just the car we passed the car then it went off again so we slowed down and then it got louder and louder it tiurned out that there had been a speed trap about two overpasses in front of us and when i saw that it actually worked then i decided that i should get one so i did and so far it has gotten me out of about six speed traps i thinik it already paid for itself if your in the market to buy one and dont have money lying around everywhere you should not overlook this one no complaints it does what its made to do detect speed traps im getting one for all my vehicles

    These are somewhere between a high end Cobra and a very low end Bel. All the internals in the Whistler line are the same, just have different extras. Mine has been decent, I can really trust the laser side, its amazed me picking up cops from far away and around obstacles. the X,K,Ka arent really impressive though, about the time Ka (cop!) goes off, I can usually see the cruiser- not alotta help.. I don't "speed" but sometimes Im not paying attention, so a detector is just a reminder for me. I'd save to get another detector unless price is a real factor, because you'd save alot of money in tickets so one Escort or Bel will pay for itself. If you just want an "alerting" radar, these will suffice. Oh, and I dont get many falses with this either, (weird considering the price) but the sound could be louder IMO.

    Awesome Detector

    Purchased this detector based on price and the reviews given. Recently took a road trip to Vegas and this Radar detector did exactly what its suppose to do "warn you of speed traps" I was going 90-100 mph on interstate 70 and interstate 15 and I can tell you it warned me off approaching speed traps way before I even saw the highway patrol sitting behind dense cactus. Even when the highway patrol was going the opposite way and they're radar was on. This whistler is worth every dollar!

    After reading all of the reviews of how this $30 would do all the same stuff as a $400 unit. I purchased it and used it on highway and city. The unit seemed to NEVER stop chirping or beeping... it was picking up all kinds of signals. It was beeping once with a cop behind me and I totally ignored the sound because I never knew if it was legit or not... until I looked in my rearview mirror. I've owned radar products in the past and have had great dealings with them. Just not this one..... I returned it.

    i got one of these radar for 30 buck only i thought it wasn't gonna work and i was going to return it. Turn out when i got it in the mail and use it for the first time it was able to detect the speed sign were i live!!! then a few days later it detected a chp radar gun the thing went off like crazy for the price i paid for i can't really complain a pretty god detector. i just wish the range on the 360 protection went farther.

    Bought this less than 2 months ago and I loved it. Then suddenly the screen goes out. I hear beeps but no display. Because I didn't purchase a Geek Squad Protection, they wouldn't exchange me a new one. So now I have to send it back to the manufacturer. What an inconvenience. I like the product. Maybe I just got a lemon. Not sure if I would recommend this. Will have to see what the manufacturer says.

    Seems like all the detectors out there are pretty pricey and thought I would give this one a shot. It is inexpensive but seems to work pretty well. Alerted me to an officer on Highway 84 this last weekend. Time will tell, but so far so good. Cant really tell what the range is and if true to description. I like that it doesn't sound off every 30 seconds and the chime is not too irritating.

    bought this for my vehicle, read all reviews first before purchasing. It was a good investment for not much money. Works well as described, radar starts beeping long before I encounter a law enforcement vehicle. Also like the sense of security when encountering unmarked vehicles.
