Conclusion: Overall quite a good radar detector for the money. It's definitely paid itself off over and over. I would say this radar detector is more for the commuter rather than the high speed racer (due to the range of detecting radar, 1/8-1/4 mile) but has saved me multiple times. I would recommend this to a friend over the wal-mart brand but would recommend a high end detector for the high speed racer if they have the money.
Summary: It's not as sensitive as the Uniden detector I had before. And the Beltronics 940 I got after that stopped working after one year. This one doesn't seem any more sensitive or long range than that.
