I bought this radar detector for about 140 or 160 dollars and it has proved to be well worth it. I am typing this from my iPhone so I won't go into great deal about radar detectors in general, which if you have done your research you know only alert you of cops if their radar is on -and that they can wait to the last second to turn on. Regardless for the price this radar detector functions extremely well in it's price range. I live in western New York, which is heavily policed, and this radar detector usually gives me ample notice prior to encountering cops. It alerts me most of the time about 5-10 seconds prior to encountering cops the majority of the time... I have been alerted with about 1-2 seconds warning coming around corners which for radar detectors are more difficult to pick up. Because of this, purchasing a radar detector does not mean you can spew with invincibility. Rather I did research and bought this to add to my car since if you are like myself and drive frequently, sometimes you tend to drive above the speed limit at times even when you know not to. This radar detector serves as another means to help protect and alert you. A nice feature of this radar detector is the mute button, which you can use to mute false alarms such as supermarket doors -which appear as X band (I had heard or read that if you are in the united states you should turn off x band which is worthless, but I still haven't done that yet after six months) stoplights often alert my radar detector, but I quickly mute them. This radar detector shines most on back roads and the highway. Excellent value considering cost of a ticket. And to help alert you for those times when you are driving and happen to forgot or not know the speed limit. Happens to everybody.
