Bad Detector

  • Excerpt: This is the worst detector I have ever owned. Pick up is terrible. I have had it in for repair twice, but still does not detect most bands. I wish I could get my money back from the manufacturer, but no such luck.
  • Pros: Looks nice.
  • Cons: Lousy detection. Expensive paper weight.

This is bogus!

  • Excerpt: The Vector 995 should have been called the Sweeper. It picks up all sorts of garbage except real threats. Its specialty is bank and store alarm systems. Ultimately, it becomes a nuisance to the driver as it beeps, chirps, buzzes, etc all the time for no real reason.
  • Pros: easy to use
  • Cons: unable to pick up real threats in any appropriate setting

Junk after only 8 months

rsxs, shopping.com
26 May 2005
  • Excerpt: My Vector 995 is a $279 paperweight after just 8 months of occasional use. First it started acting crazy suddenly giving full-strength false alarms in the middle of nowhere, now it just displays "service required".
  • Pros: nice display... when it works
  • Cons: far too many false alarms, unreliable, bad warranty service
