above average sensitivity volume level is loud, all sensitivity come from Beltronics independent tests. X Band 114.7 dBm K Band 112.3 dBm ( Superwide KA ) 33.5 GHz 107.6 dBm 34.7 GHz 103.2 dBm 35.9 GHz 106.2 dBm Average K Band Sensitivity 105.7 dBm

Summary:
Well made unit very good sensitivity on KA Band easy to read digital display, voice alert. Tested against my Valentine One version 1.8 and alerted to KA Band first around several curb test and one over the hill test both units tested separately radar gun used Stalker hand held, this unit performed almost as well on staightaway test alerted within 1,000 ft of the valentine one version 1.8 highly recommend this unit if KA Band radar is used in your area.

Review 3 of 12

Price Paid:  $0.00

Strengths:
cheap price compared to V1

Weaknesses:
Cheap performance compared to V1

Summary:
Actually one of the guys in our race club bought this one... He got it on the net for $189 with shipping. He was bragging how he saved 200 bucks compared to us who all have Valentine 1s. We have this race where we open road race for 40 miles (top end and good handling) He got nailed by a trooper with a antiquated K band gun...sad very sad. He said that it only warned him enough to get down from 120mph to 97mph (but he still got caught 32 over the speed limit) He will spend about 300 in attorney costs not to mention defered ajudication for 6 months... he should have spent $100 more for escort or even better $200 for the Valentine

Review 4 of 12

Price Paid:  $200.00

Strengths:
Price, software upgrades, sleak

Weaknesses:
Still not the best

Summary:
Not a bad detector, especially for the price, but anyone comparing it to the Valentine1 is only fooling themself. Good bang for the buck, but definitely not the "best" available detector!

Review 5 of 12

Price Paid:  $179.00 from amdv.com

Strengths:
3 Year Warranty Radar Sensitivity and Range Very Little Falsing

Weaknesses:
Could get a little dimmer in DIM mode

Summary:
This is an OUTSTANDING radar detector. You have to be crazy to drop another 100-225.00 for a passport 8500 or valentine one! This is a top of the line unit and gives outstanding radar range and after shutting off x band (not used in my area) the 970 rarely if ever falses. Picks up excellent over hills and around corners...the only reason you would get a ticket with this is if your the only one on the road and your hit w/ instant on or laser..in which case 10 Valentine 1''s couldn''t save your behind. (if you cant see cars in the distance DONT SPEED) Great investment w/ the 3 year warranty!!
