Do not waste your money on this one

By Xavier T

from San Antonio, TX

Comments about Escort SOLO S4:

I really should have believed the other reviews, but because I have owned multiple radars from this company, I figured it couldn't really be that bad. This is by far the worst radar I have ever owned! Way too many false alarms and the thing will not stop going off even when there are no cops around. Worse mistake I have done is buying this radar. Way to drop the ball Escort! Do not sacrifice the "convenience" of being cordless. Buy a different radar.

Ugly styling and numerous false radar alarms

By Mark

from San Francisco

Comments about Escort SOLO S4:

I have been a long time customer. I loved my S2 and my S3. They both saved me from numerous tickets. Unfortunately Escort has dropped the ball with the S4. The S3 was beautifully styled. The S4 has a bulky look with bright orange lettering, and it looks like a complete eyesore on my dashboard.

But worst of all. The laser false alarms. The laser warning goes off every 3-5 minutes off highway driving. I'm so disappointed. I am returning the S4 and going back to my old S3. What a pity.

ok...but bulkier design compared to S3.

By Bss74

from Providence, RI

Pros

  • Clear OLED screen.
  • Great battery life.

Cons

  • Bad included suction cups
  • Bulky and outdated look.
  • Not sleek.
  • No upgrade over the s3

Best Uses

  • If you need a cordless option this is the best.

Comments about Escort SOLO S4:

The S3 was much sleeker. This actually looks like what an older model should look like compared to the S4. I don't think it is worth the price, especially since it does not seem like an upgrade over the S3. I feel like in todays world, they could have improved upon this, even with range, and still maintain battery life. I personally like a model with no wires. I think this was just a re-case of the S3, and the same price tag with really no improvements to justify the same price as the S3. I am disappointed I purchased this. I should have just bought an S3 at a discount. Again, if you need a cordless option, this works, but don't expect any improvements over the S3. On top of that, the range is limited, but it does provide enough of a warning to wake you up before you are on top of a cop. Lastly, it should come with the better mount. The included suction cups, for the money, are HORRIBLE. They fall off constantly. So expect to drop another $30 to get the better mount.

Not good

By AD

from Nyc

Comments about Escort SOLO S4:

I'm an escort customer for more than 20 years. Recently purchased my 5th radar detector directly from your site (new solo 4). I'm really disappointed it's garbage. I want to return it. I purchased it because of the wireless option. Don't know why it would have less range than the others but it really has no range. The detector goes off when it's literally in eye site of a police vehicle. I'm not a stranger to escort products and know how to set them up properly and position them properly.
I'd like to return it and trade up-purchase the top model.

What's Not To Love!

By Tom U

from Upstate NY

Comments about Escort SOLO S4:

This RD is exactly what I need for my daily commute to work driving through 4 towns with 30 MPH speed zones and 55 MPH highways in between. I have gotten excellent response time on all of my radar encounters. I am impressed with Ka Band performance for a cordless unit. And the best part is I can mount it on my visor - no vibration and easy to reach and see. This unit looks cool too. Plenty of alarm volume when you need it with the stereo plugging away. The batteries are a piece of cake to change and the unit is frugal with batteries!
