Radar Detector

Can anyone suggest a good radar detector for under $100?

good and under $100 are mutually exclusive. You get what you pay for.

I have an escort passport 8500 x50. Swear by it. Cost me about 300. Was worth every penny though.

Yeah I know there are a bunch of them for under $100, and i dont need something thats going to alert me to a nuclear missile 75 miles away. Just something reliable that will alert me to police radar or oncomming construction sites on the freeway. You cant tell me that every radar detector out there for under $100 is crap.

At that point, it's all rather useless. Better to die in ignorance.

i'm not saying they're crap.

I'm just saying there are so many police technologies out there -- LIDAR, laser, K band, KA band, X band, etc. -- you want one that will detect all of them. WHat good is a radar detector that only detects one or two technologies? It's worthless. Because the cop around the bend could be using laser, and if you're detector doesn't do laser, then you're screwed.

that being said, check out this link to find out about the best unit available under 100.
