I went with Valentine 1. From what I've found, they are the best. A bit on the expensive side though. Gotta order right from their site for $400. It's saved me at least 2 tickets already though, so basically paid for itself.

I bought my Escort 8500 detector at Best Buy for $275, or you can order it online, but you have to pay shipping and wait, but on the other hand you have to pay sales tax. I love mine, its saved my *** a few times so its already paid for itself, I don't speed around town but on the Highway its wonderful.

I bought the bel 980 and haven't got a ticket since I use it mostly on the highway also. Worth the $350 I payed for it.

I've got the same one, and it works great. My friend paid about what you paid, but since he sold his car before going off to college. I got it for $100. [IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif[/IMG] Funny how this thing was made in Canada. I just found these two links if anyone is interested:

Amazon.com - Bel Radar Detectors

Etonics.com - Bel Radar Detectors

Edit--Here's a question. When (and if) any of you go onto an air force base do the guys at the gate ask you to take down your radar detector? I have several times. So when I have to go on base, I just take it down when they check my ID, and put it back up right after I'm past the gate.
