Summary: These Refurbished RX65 detectors are among the best available at any price. These older models use one of the best microwave antennas ever designed....the S7! Run it in USA mode which focuses on the Ka frequencies used in the US and North America and it detection range is simply outstanding and very quick to detect Instant On. For $199.....or even $350.....you will not find a better radar detector.
Amazing sensitivity, range & programability. No GPS. It's not a V1.

Summary: The RX65 I purchased has the blue LED display and the M4 antenna. Since most of my driving is highway, I got the model with the M4 antenna for longer range. If you need more protection from the sides, choose the RX65 with the S7 antennae. It has a larger horn. You can tell which antenna is in the unit by the last two digits of the FCC ID number located on the bottom. I liked being able to turn off certain bands that are not used in my area.
Feature packed detector with excellent detection capabilities

Summary: Excellent detector. I've owned several Bel detectors and this is the finest of them. Ample warning, bright, clear display, good audible messages and plenty of customizable settings. I would recommend this detector to anyone looking for a good all-around unit.
Great Radar Detector with lots of options, very user friendly!!

Summary: I purchased the RX65 with the S7 antenna becasue it is better than the new M4 antenna which is on the newest Pro RX65 models. It performs extreamly well at off axis encounters and is supper fast with instant on radar encounters. This model is getting hard to find and isn't manufactured by Beltronics with the S7 feedhorn antenna anymore. Great purchase for a refurbed unit on the Beltronics Ebay Store for $200.00.
Avoid at all costs, V1 is hands down SO much better in every way possible.

Summary: It is pretty good when it works, but when it gives you issues like self calibration and service required (which is EXACTLY what happened to me), its pathetic. It is nice to have the voice alert and the option to turn any band on or off, but you cannot detect multiple bogeys at once, it is always a guessing game since it doesn't point out where the threat(s) are like the Valentine One, and the rear antenna for detection behind you is smaller than the size of an infant's...
Great unit and good protection from the man. Highly recommended.

Summary: For those who like to drive on the fast side and have no margin for error I recommend the Beltronics Pro RX65. I have used this for a few months and it is an excellent unit. Replaced my old detector and I really like this one. Minimal false alarms, and good long distance detection. Nice features and I love the auto mute feature as well as the mute button on the lighter socket...what a great idea.
Summary: My opinion ? A Radar detector is a drivers best friend. Everybody gets a bit heavy on the gas pedal occasionally and you certainly don't want to pay a huge price because of it. There is more to pay than a mere fine. Increased insurance fees,points on the drivers license,etc. Cops are everywhere,solely for the purpose of taking your money to fund whatever locality they represent. Never saw as many unmarked cars in the past.
The Beltronics RX65-Blue outperform all others i've ever used....period.

Summary: I have two other Beltronics Radar Detectors, an Rx 995, and another wireless model, but neither have the range of the RX65. This unit seems to reach five miles down the road, over the hill, around the curve, and behind billboard signs. I just returned from a trip to Vegas and can verify that it works well in Texas, N. Mexico, Arizona, and Nevada. If you're going to be driving in N. Mexico, don't turn off the X-band, they seem to use it, almost exclusively.
Summary: The Rx-65 is an outstanding detector, great range, ease of use, and superb performance. But for the a higher level of protection, I would buy the Beltronics Gx-65 for it's GPS features or the Sti-Driver invisibility to Radar Detector Detector.
