Summary: I needed a simple and affordable radar detector for my car. I looked around on ebay and other websites for something that fit the description, and I ran across the Cobra ESD 6050 Radar Detector. It's cheap, but it works very well! I haven't had any significant problems with it yet. I really like the volume control so that I can adjust the intensity of the beeps, as sometimes I need it to be loud over the music or my windows being down, and sometimes a quiet beep is okay.
