Great product!

By Little Timmy

from Ottawa, KS

Comments about Escort PASSPORT X80:

I have owned Escort radar detectors since the early 1980's and have always been impressed with their performance. I recently purchased an X80 to replace an old 8500 that I've had for probably 15 years. The X80 is awesome, I've had the old 8500 recalibrated several times but still had way too many false alarms, the X80 rarely signals a false alarm and almost never has one on the highway. If it goes off while I'm driving on a highway you know it's the real deal.

Don't waste your money

By ...

from Sc

Comments about Escort PASSPORT X80:

Got it a few months back and not at all pleased. I see the cop before the thing goes off. I used to have the x50 that I bought in 2003 and it was incredible I'd take a false alarm over a ticket any day. I can't believe they are selling such a garbage product compared to what they had. The x50 would give notice almost 1/2 mile it seemed now the x80 if cop is going 70 down the other side of the interstate I'm lucky to get a 2 second heads up even then it jumps straight to full bars on the meter then stays on longer after I pass them than it did before... again don't waste your money I wish I could still purchase one that was actually good but they've all been discontinued it seems. I have to be right on the grocery store door before the thing goes off so it doesn't even filter not sure what they're selling

Jury still out

By HLH

from San Antonio

Comments about Escort PASSPORT X80:

I have just purchased the X80 to replace my Bel-tronics R65 so far not impressed I have called Escort 2 times to help with my issues of not being able to get the display to see the speed limit and MPH I am going, and they have been little help. If they are not able to answer questions about their own detectors then their is a problem. The detector itself seems to react slow, for example KA bad will react to radar head on but if it around a turn you have to turn and then it will react, my RX 65 would still pick it up even in the same situation.

Poor performace

By SB

from Tennessee

Comments about Escort PASSPORT X80:

I purchased the X80 3 weeks ago to update my passport X50. After 3 weeks of use I have decided to send it back. It compared to my passport X50 are night and day. This thing is terrible in comparison. Every cop I have seen when using this I was staring right at the police when it finally went off I can't believe I did not get a ticket. I have used Radar's for years and this is very disappointing coming from Escort. I commute 70+ miles a day and guaranteed to pass at least 2 cops, I can't have this. I love my X50 it has been flawless for me but this X80 was a real let down. I hope Escort is fixing what ever they have done wrong or I'll be switching to valentine.

Awesome unit for the price

By Kaci

from Dayton, Ohio area

Comments about Escort PASSPORT X80:

I started with a Fuzzbuster in the 70s, and moved up from there. I've owned Whistler, Cobra, and Escort over time as well. Had a Cobra recently and it was ok for a $79 detector as I used it to replace my X50 that failed after 7 years of use. Decided today to get the X80. My trip from West Chester up 75 and 675 went well and nabbed some cops. Be well folks and get this unit.

JUST GOT IT AND IT DOSE IT'S JOB!!!

By Randy

from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida

Comments about Escort PASSPORT X80:

The X-80 in my opinion is worth the money for the options on the detector....it gives you plenty of warning when ka is in the area, and will learn the x band false alerts...i have been a escort customer for a long time, and will be for a long time....keep making great products!!.
