Pros this radar detector not only has X band, K band, Ka band, Ku Band, and Laser but it also detects the new band called POP. This radar not only beeps but speaks for certain band warnings.
Cons I have not had any problems with this device. However, I have a friend that owns an escort X50 and I think the vector 995 has a shorter range than the escort X50.
Summary This is a great Radar detector and I recomend it for people looking for up to date radar detectors.
Pros Good when working
Cons Customer service for Beltronics is below par
Summary Listening to ads on the phone is poor when you want to talk to a person; getting disconnect after having to listen to an automated sales pitch is even worse. I want to talk to a person right away; I don't care to listen about other product. Using the Live Chat session for help failed too. Customer service and finally talking on the other side made my decision for the future...another vendor.
Pros NONE AT ALL!!!!
Cons Over priced for what you get, missed K band and KA band many times, was luckey not to get a ticket!!!!
Summary After almost getting me nailed by a couple of LEO's I decided that this had to go and replace it with something that is fool proof.I replaced this with a Valentine V1, much more money but has not missed a beat since I got it.DO NOT waste your money on Beltronics spend the extra and get a Valentine V1, it is the best hands down!!!!
Pros Best reception and warning within $150 of its price range.
Cons Irritatingly large 12v socket, too quiet.
Summary I have had my Bel 995 long enough to try it at both city and open interstate in the hills and i have not found a situation where this detector didn't shine. It has plenty of customizable settings and a convenient 'dark' mode for an extra level of descretion whereby along with the standard audible alert the only visual is an indicator on the 12v socket that blinks red to alert you to a threat. POP detection is phenomenal and the instant mute button will only mute the specific frequency causing that immediate alert (perfect for multiple simultaneous threats). I have found however that i have trouble hearing the 995 at full volume over the wind from an open window or from my aftermarket audio system even at 'reasonable' volume levels. This would be my #1 recommendation other than the Valentine One.
