No longer king of the hill but worth every penny.

  • Summary: The Vector 995 used to be near the top of the line 5-7 years ago. According to various sources it is essentially the same as an Escort 8500 x50 in detection range and sensitivity. This makes sense if since Bel is owned by Escort. Overall this radar/laser detector has above average performance at an extremely reasonable price.

  • Summary: Great little radar detector, easy to use and works very well. For the price you can't gripe. It has already saved me a couple of times. It's a nice insurance policy for a small price.

Had a good price and favorable reviews, but I'm not so sure.

  • Summary: I bought this to replace an Escort 8500 that I had for many years. I seems to be OK for the most part, but it does give much too frequent laser alerts for no apparent reason. Enough so that they no longer have any impact. Not a good situation. It was priced right, but may not be as reliabe as the Escort was.

When it comes to radar detectors, keep it cheap and simple like this one.

  • Summary: This is a great all around detector. I Haven't gotten stopped with it yet! (knock on wood.) I don't think it matters when you get a radar detector on this level. They can detect so for that you should be slowing down long before they are even close. Get a mid-range detector like this one, and save your money. Bigger and better in this department only gets you more beeps and blips.

  • Summary: A good product to buy. Only hitch i found was in the city , beeper would go off even at few signal lights and near stores using the same band. I think the range is ok as far as detecting any signal on the higway is concerned.

  • Conclusion: Pretty good product for the money. Sonic has the best price and service all around. Works great but need to customize the sensitivity in the city.

BEL 955

chase from Wilmington, NC, Sonic Electronix
17 April 2012
  • Conclusion: I have a BEL 955 for a little over 6 months, for the price it is great! On the highway it works flawlessly in the city not so much. Lots of False k bands when driving around a hospital or any drug store, such as Walgreens, Rite Aid, CVS all show 1 bar K band and can be very annoying. It works great on back roads away from disturbance and has away given me plenty or warning on the highway (way before the cop is visible).

Great Radar

xtrmbui, Ebay

  • Summary: Best radar in $300 range. Beltronics is essentially an Escort/Passport under a different skin and price. Minimal false alarms and good range to adjust speed once detected. Overall great version BEL V995. I had cobras and whistlers, neither can compare to the reliability of this radar.

Bel Beltronics Vector 995

Kirk from Sac, Ca, Sonic Electronix
18 March 2012
  • Conclusion: It works great on all kinds of radar. As I got to know it better i realized all the times it went off i could find the radar 90% of the time by looking for it. Laser radar is a problem due to its nature, if it goes off the guns already on you by the time you can react. But nobody can do anything about that.
