My two cents: In April, Car & Driver did a set of tests. The Valentine 1
radar/laser detector blew away the competition. Of course, at $400 and
unavailable at discount, it should. Second place went to a BEL radar/laser
detector, followed by the Escort 4500.
In the December Automobile magazine, they performed a test. The Valentine
was not tested and the BEL 645STi Plus was their clear winner. The list on
this detector is also $400, but you can purchase them through mail order for
$209 (after a $30 rebate).
Therefore, I would say it comes down to how much you want to spend and what
you get for the incremental expense. Others on the Talon/Eclipse/Laser group
I subscribe to swear by the Valentine and wouldn't touch the Escorts at this
point (too much cost saving, making them cheap).
I just put my money on the BEL.
