    I was expecting this to be a moderate performing radar detector and was even expecting to have to deal with quite a few false alarms since this is a model that is not the latest and greatest on the market. But it was surprisingly accurate and for the most part had few false alarms. In the city as long as I used AutoScan it did better at avoiding these but I did cut down on the range. But then I do not travel at high enough speeds in the city to need a long range. My only complaint on this model is really a small one and that it is hard to use on a visor. I like having my radar detector on my visor as opposed to on the dash and it since the buttons are on the top it makes getting to them against the visor a little tough. Small complaint, and I have learned to deal with it since it does do such a great job of helping me avoid speed traps

      I find this a very useful tool on the highway. Yes, it can be beat for more money. This is a great budget detector. It can be found for less than $300. I got it at Radioshack, and they will honor the warranty. It costs about $220 and change with tax included! It could possibly be less during the holidays.

      It does a good job up picking up I/O. On my way home from college, I let my friend use it on his travels. Every time I see him, since I live with him, it’s always the same. “Hey, thanks for the RD. I think it just paid itself off.” :-)

      Stealth is not an issue here in NY. Just make sure to pack it up, and out of sight when not in use in your car.

        This is as good as it is going to get for the price, I have brought all different type of radar between beltronics,whistler,cobra models and this model right here is the best. Why pay more for a radar detector if u get the same quality from this one the beltronics vector 995. I have tested this out numerous time and never got a ticket.It even warned me about a laser and I slowed down just in time lets say I was going way over the speed limit if he would of got me at that speed I would have a heavy fine.

    I purchased my V955 2 years ago. At that time Radar Roy recommended the V955. I don’t know if the Bel RX65 or Escort 8500 x50 were available at that time. I have not had any issues or complaints about the V955 and I drive only in N. America. Great Radar Dector, actually the best I have owned. Laser mode is very sensitive to the Sun though. Laser is so rarely used by police due to the ability of being foiled they rarely use it anyway.

    I got this to replace my Bel 940. I have definitely noticed increased range and I love the Tech Display so I can see what Ka bands are in the area.
