Best Radaar Detector under $200

Not looking to spend an arm and a leg for a radar detector so I'm looking for opinions on the best one under $200.

I found out that Escort has a interest free 12 month payment thing going on right now, so I opted for the Passport 8500 X50 Black with Blue Display. $99 initial payment and $19.95 for 12 months.

Excellent choice.....I had a blue 8500 & purchased Escort's RedLine for my DD, I have a Solo S3 for my LS3 (cordless). Nothing wrong with the 8500, just wanted the latest/greatest when the RedLine became available (along with the new S3).....

Recommended assy's: SuperCup mount & SmartCord (if not included)

Guys, the 8500 is over his budget.

I second the RX 65.

My V1 was $400 I can't tell you how manny thousands it has saved me. Shit couple thousand today alone. Each avoided ticket is a good $3-600 staying in your pocket.

I love my Escort 8500 X50 so much that I bought an extra one so I have one in every vehicle I own. It has saved my butt a bunch and definitely paid for itself.

I did too! Bought the 8500 X50 Blue, a Blendmount and the power adapter from Safe-N-Sound1. All will be here by the weekend. Thanks chaotic84 for the heads up on the 12 month to pay program.

No problem, it's a great deal. I almost went with the 9500 but wasn't sure if the extra features were worth the extra $140.

I looked at the 9500 but, to get all the features, you need to pay the subscription for the database (only $39 for 3 years) but, if you want "Live" with any of them, you have to use their cigarette lighter power adaptor. I just couldn't justify the additional cost.
