Puzzling

Dale B., Newegg
30 September 2014
  • Summary: The manufacturer told me this was unusual, so maybe I just had a bad one.
  • Pros: Nice size; Fit securely to windshield.
  • Cons: Worked fine for 3 days, then went out. Fuse appeared to be blown, so I replaced it. Long story, short...it blew 5 consecutive fuses, one right after the other. Each time I plugged it back in, the fuse would blow.

works fine

Collin M., Newegg

  • Summary: I was just curious about where radar was in use in my town, and I drive by a sign that says "your speed is ..." every day so I figured I would get a cheap detector. It sees the radar from the speed sign from a long way off, and also sees radar at one intersection in town (?). I like being able to see when radar is in use.
  • Pros: I got this detector because it was cheap and had good reviews. It works fine and satisfies my curiosity about radar signals (intersections, speed signs, cops).
  • Cons: None yet.

What a disappointment

Long N., Newegg
6 April 2014
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: It didn't make any sound when I drove near a speed sign. When I saw the speed sign, it didn't make ANY sound. At the time the speed sign displayed my speed, it started to made a "beep", and that was all.......It was also silent when there was a cop with the gun speed on the road. When I was in his ranged, it started to made a "beep" again, and it was TOO late.

BE AWARE! THIS WORKS!

CASSIDY S., Newegg

  • Summary: I didn't want to spend a fortune on a laser detector then get pulled over for speeding I would have been mad. Now its not going to save you from getting pulled over but it will warn you where cops are and when they set speed traps. Overall it is a superb laser detector and only requires operator to read manual and set settings when driver is on highway or city.
  • Pros: Detects cops that are looking to pull you over or driving around with lasers on. I have used many other speed detectors and this one is just as good as the best.
  • Cons: Detects things like car unlock switches thus it will beep when no cop is around but its got settings you can change to reduce this. Not every beep will be a cop, but it will make you watch out and drive slower!

User Review

Lyle C., Newegg
30 January 2013
  • Summary: I drive 2 hours a day round trip. 90% on I-75 at high speeds. This is a simple unit to detect speed traps. Interstates were designed for high-speed driving, and I drive the max at early hours before the crowds arrive. Still, I want to be warned if a zealous radar trooper is around. This unit gives ample warning.
  • Pros: It works. I'm not sure what the high-priced detectors do that this unit doesn't. I get ample warning of radar.
  • Cons: While driving in town, I get false alwarms caused by "red"lights and alarm systems that are engaged by businesses. It's comical at times. It's a minor inconvenience. "In-town" driving shouldn't involve exceeding a speed limit by a lot, so I'm not worried about false alarms.

Great buy for the price

  • Summary: This has worked really well, especially for the price. I have not missed a cop yet but I have picked up a security system or two, but heck I drive through D.C. ( so much security in that area). This is very easy to work and you can't miss when it goes off to warn of police. I have had this about a month and so far I am extremely pleased with the performance.
