I've had two of the Bel Vector 995's I sent first one back because it falsed like crazy on pop....even when I know radar wasn't present in the middle of no where....cell phones made it go crazy etc. The 2nd one I got the replacement still occasionally falses on pop...the cell phone issue is gone...I hate to turn pop off because it was main reason of purchase. Besides that range is great...a very good detector...

I bought a brand new cobra I haven't used it yet....they sent warped suction cups and I had no dash space to mount it...It is their top of the line...XRS 9930...reading their manual it said he pop was extremely sensitive and said it may false.....So the pop thing may be an issue....

I've had good luck with Whistler...I just replaced my previous remote mount with the new remote mount to add pop :) I haven't driven that car for test as of yet....

Bel RX65. I am a happy owner of one and the range is incredible not to mention it is much cheaper than the Escorts.

It went off one day while I was doing 80 down long highway. A minute later, I see a cop on the opposite side of the road and I was like WHOA! We were at least 2 miles apart at that time. Laser detection is very good also. It warns you when there is laser in the area, not when you are directly hit (at least with the lasers in my area).
