Summary: I am very pleased with my Escort Passport 8500 Radar Detector. It has proven to be very reliable. I drive a long distance to go to work and this detector has been a very good reminder of the need to slow down while driving though small towns.
Summary: This is my second Escort Passport 8500 X50 and my first which is now 8 years old still works like brand new. The first time that it notifies you of a hidden speed trap it has paid for itself. I would definitely recommend this product to others.
Performs like a great high end radar detector should.

Summary: While this unit is almost 10 years old, it still performs EXCELLENT!! I couldn't be more happy with a purchase. The 8500 has GREAT range and MINIMAL falses. Better than most new $200-$300 models sold today.
Summary: The new escorts/beltronics are poorly designed. I bought the 8500 X50 and Bel Vector 995 and both overheated within 2 hours of use (I live in Seattle where there isn't much sun so it wasn't in direct sunlight). It may work fine brand new but after a few years it will need to be sent in for repair. When you see the 'service required' indicator that's when you should get rid of it on ebay because it would also be out of warranty.
