Just a fancy looking Escort 8500 X50 M4

By leog68

from Derry, New Hampshire

Just Escort 8500 X50 that had a makeover, still older M4 design with little to no changes in technology, Uniden DFR5, DFR6, DFR7 will easily outperform Escort X70 they have better filtering and DFR5 can be found for less than $150. Really wanted this detector was disappointed in overall performance. Detector was a gift, will be reselling it.

Not worth the price.

By Leo

from Hudson, NH

Like the appearance, not impressed by overall performance. Can buy competitors brand at lower cost and better performance. If I had the option this radar detector would get 2 1/2 stars at the most.

Display broke before first use

By needQuality

from NY

Have 2 Passport X50s and this is a terrible replacement for that model. I turned it on, went to mount it and the display went off. Jiggled it a bit and display went back on. Mounted it, display went off again. Display never came back on. Tried power off/power on, etc. Nothing worked. Still made plenty of sounds. Entered preferences mode just fine, although i could not see the preferences screen. Total junk.

Goes off at every traffic flow camera in my city.

By Beamer

from Tyler, TX

Pros

  • Has a very long range.
  • Went off miles before speed trap.

Cons

  • Sets off K alert at every camera
  • TFC setting does not work

Best Uses

  • If only used on highway, this would be fine.

I emailed back and forth to customer support about the false alarms at traffic flow cameras. I was finally told that my brand new, not even a week old detector, had to be sent in and recalibrated. I have yet to send it in. just annoying to find out that something doesn't do what it says it can do.

Buy the X70, you will not regret it!

By Keith

from Camden, SC

This unit replaces the trusty Escort 8500 I kept in my pick-up truck and all I can say is it is a MUCH better detector with FAR FEWER false alarms. In fact, it stays nearly as quiet and false alarm free as the Escort 9500ix I keep in my Corvette. Buy this radar detector. It is an amazing value!!

Overpriced average performance at best.

By Leo

from New Hampshire

Basically a shelled out version of the Escort Max and Escort Max 360 and the range on thoses are nearly the same as Escort X70. There are cheaper radar detectors with better range then these detectors. Want a good range radar detector? Purchase Escort Redline.
