After reading reviews for over a week and actually buying two Beltronics 995 units and an Escort Passpost 8500 X50, I must decide which unit to keep. I owned an Escort Passport in the distant past, and don't know what ever happened to it, but the technology has changed so much. The Beltronics seems to be a nicer unit. It just feels more solid, and is slightly smaller than the Escort. As some people know, the two companies recently combined, and both of these units is built on the same framework.. I think the Escort falses more than the Beltronics, but I think they are very similar in performance. The main reason I think I will stay with the Beltronics is the Ku Band. Passport doesn't have it, and it is not used in the USA yet, but if you travel internationally, you might have use for it. I haven't had these units side by side in my car long enough to tell which is the better unit, so I am premature in writing this review, but looks like Escort is coming out witha new unit named the Redline, and it appears it will be the one to beat in the future, but, for now if you are looking for a sub $200.00 unit on the used market, I would choose the Beltronics Vector 995, witha close second going to the Escort Passport 8500 X50. As I get more to report, I'll do so, but I think both units are great for the used pricepoint you can find on eBay. Both doa great job on x, K, Ka, Laser, and for the Bel Ku. I'll keep you all up to date as I have more to report.
I bought this product because I travel on the Mass Pike often and there's a ton a speed traps along the Pike. I waited a while before writing this review because I wanted to get a feel for it first. I find it works great sometimes and doesn't work as well other times. Its variability in efficiency may just be due to the fact that when I passed a particular trooper on the side of the highway, their radar wasn't on. Most of the time this product picks up radar trap signals far before the police car is even visible which is nice. There was one instance when the alarm didn't go off until I was actually passing the police car which didn't sit well with me. I don't know much about police radar, so maybe that instance was radar-related and not detector-related. False readings occur often in suburban and urban areas. If you're driving along highways with very little else around, then this won't be an issue. All in all, I feel this is a good product to have, especially if you tend to speed, if you can find it for the right price on ebay. I wouldn't go out and buy it for full price. I got mine used for about 85 dollars. It has definitely payed for itself a few times over in avoided tickets already.
I have done a lot of research on radar detectors and what i have found is that the Beltronics Vector 955 gives the most bang for its buck. If you are NOT looking to spend 400+ on a detector then get this one. It has been tested and is comparable to some 300 dollar detectors. This is a for sure good buy!
Works great, one of the best radar detectors out there and for a great price. Tested it out a couple times, very low false alarms and gives tons of time when it does pick up a signal.
Did my research before I bought and found this one to be rated very highly and very similar to the $400 radar detectors.
Would buy another BEL product without hesitation!
The Beltronics 955 radar detector is amazing. I couldn't ask for more features. The product evades false alarms wonderfully while maintaining better sensitivity than competitors like its Whistler counterparts. I directly compared the two (XTR-695 and the Bel 955) and the Vector 955 gave a radar warning 25% before the XTR did. I really recommend this product, you dont need to spend more money to have an excellent detector
