5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing
Reviewed in the United States on March 9, 2019
This was my first radar detector and will be my only for quite awhile and bought May 2018. I drive an FJ Cruiser and only go average 10+ over driving in places like Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, and Florida on highways, interstates, and back roads. I also take it with me when I travel

GOOD:
Range - very long and has saved me many times from not seeing cops behind hills and whatnot while still being able to read other drivers' reactions near hills
Alerts - I leave it on the highest sensitivity and only get a few random alerts - after driving with it for awhile I can pick out what is real and what is false based on the strength and type of signal its receiving. It does not sense other signals from cars like blind spot, nor does it give out any signal to police indicating you have a radar detector.
Value/Dependability - I guarantee I would have been stopped at least 10 times with cops wasting time and money by sitting in medians and behind hills and such but this thing alerted me very quickly and allowed me enough time to determine if its false and slow down accordingly. This is one of the best $120 I spent on an accessory for driving besides a dash cam which I have written a review on too (Garmin 55).
Usability - I use it every time my trip is longer than 20 min and goes through roads I'm unfamiliar with. It has sat in my truck basically since I bought it in the sun with temps ranging from 110 to 0F and starts up every time I turn it on and only shuts off if the truck's battery voltage drops below some threshold. The screen is very bright but goes into a dimmed mode after a few minutes of detecting a signal.
Wiring/Mounting - I bought the hard-wiring kit and add-a-fuse and also a custom switch so I can turn it on with the push of a switch without having to reach and turn the dial switch on the detector. I also velcro'd it to the top of my instrument panel as shown in the picture because the suction cup kept coming off in the heat, it was easier to see on top of the instruments, and it was more stealthy for police to have less of a reason to pull me over since i don't use the suction cups. I have left the dial at the 6 on-volume position ever since I hardwired a switch.
Noise - the noises of each band are to me pretty distinct and able to be remembered after awhile of using it. I discovered the laser feature only once when driving on a Florida highway and it does sound like a retro laser, but have not heard it again since luckily.

BAD:
I literally cannot think of any bad thing besides the fact it uses a 12 volt dvd player style power connector instead of mini usb or a more common connector.

It does have a micro usb connection on the side which I just remembered and have not figured out what reason it could possibly need to connect to a computer for.

Overall, I love this radar detector. Its sensitivity is just right and can be adjusted, it has saved me plenty of times and its value surpassed tenfold at least by the amount of times I could've gotten in trouble. Very easy to wire and mount if you know what you're doing. Great first radar detector.
