Eh for that kind of money I would probably pick up the Beltronics V995 [amazon.com] pretty sure it has newer and more reliable tech.

Used to have the 995 until it got jacked out of my car and loved it.

Groupon + tax makes it OK deal for a good radar detector.
Interesting read implying that you are correct with the V955 from Amazon as a better deal

yes the 995 is supposed to be pretty good(or identical) and although you probably accidentally said 955 I suggest you look into the differences in sensors between the 940/955/995. For the most part you will find they perform pretty much exactly the same.

The main difference is the ability to turn certain modes off and more viewing options. If you don't need any of that then the 940 is good enough.

Also best buy exclusively sells beltronics new line of v6/v8/v10 these are essentially rebaged of the above radar detectors.(although full retail price but if the right coupon or something comes up then use it for these)
lol and if you want proof? just look at the sku of each and you will see the V940 or V955 or V995 in it.

And a side note is that one company owns the other I think, just not sure if bel owns escort or the other way around.

For some of these higher end detectors your just buying a brand sometimes.

the X50 is really good, its saved me numerous times on my drives to Reno. I recently sold mine for 300 thinking i would buy the 9500ix but havnt yet... lol.

for those of you who are on the V955 is better, please do more research not just off of 1 blog with only 2 detectors.. Radardetectors.org [radardetector.org] tests almost every known detector and jammers using actual guns and videos it all for proof.

Sti driver magnum and the Escort redline are what i run. Not a fan of much other. GPS is alright, had it, sold it. The V1 was good too, but had a lot of false alerts. I would pass on this.

There is a newer X50 version out called the X50 black. The X50 black according to several online reviews uses the same internals as the Escort redline except it has different programing as regards to sensitivities and what sets if off. From my research it appears the X50 black is what has garnered the great reviews lately. What groupon is selling is the older model. Though at such a discounted price I don't know if the comparison is warranted.

You can refer a friend to Groupon and receive $10 which can be applied to your purchase.
Also, if you use bing.com instead of google, you'll be able to accumulate points to purchase groupon egift cards which would drop the price even further depending on how much pts you have...probably won't help most folks but in the near future...

9500ix is most of top of the lines radar & laser detector. It will not be on Groupon. You will have better luck on Amazon if you check periodically.
