after looking at some different detectors, I kind of like the Escort Passport 7500. Looks like I can get one on ebay for about $100 shipped. Anyone have one, or have a different one they think is better?
+1 to the deadman, that was what i was telling him on AIM, and i will never buy a radar detector on ebay, i will get it from the shop, so i get warranty and shit, i would reccomend the one where the detector company pays ur ticket if u get one.
Look at it like this.... This is how I explain to my customers. If the radar detector cost $300 bucks. Ok, if a ticket is $100-150 and the detector saves you from getting a ticket 3 or 4 times, it just paid for itself! Like anything else it is well worth it to spend your money right the first time and not have to go back and upgrade later...

someone please show me a comparison of the top ones from a mediocre one... Even my shitty one has found all the cops with a gun out, it just has false alarms. I also never go rediculously fast, I just like it for doing 80 in 65's on the highway. So im really not worried about getting 3-4 tickets.
ok, i'll state my opinion and you cna take it or let it go:
Personally, i think you should pay $150 more than originally anticipated and get one of the big 3 radars.
I persoanlly think that "cheap" radars will end up being cheap and other than false alarms, they will tell you where the cop's at in the last possible second.
Now, if you still want to buy $150 radar, go ahead, it's your money, not mine. I, however, don't know of any $150 radars. Try ebay and see if you can buy a used escort for $150
