haven't kept up with radar detectors in a while...

is this Beltronics V10 a good detector in this
price range?

also, I noticed that the item is being sold and
shipped by "Premier Produx" on Newegg.
Will this affect the Beltronic warranty?

thanks!

Just a quick note before going into it more Beltronics and Escort owned by one or the other(I don't know who owns who but they are almost the same company)

The V10 is the BestBuy version of the V995 just repackaged. I don't recall this one being sold by any other vendor so I would be leary of if it has a warranty or not. It is on clearance though from BestBuy($175) so maybe they cleared a lot out of their warehouse at wholesale to someone? I believe the V995 has the same inards as the 8500x50. Hope someone corrects me if I am wrong as I don't feel like looking it up.

Amazon Reviews for V995(Not to be mistaken for the V955)
https://www.amazon.com/Beltronics...words=v995

For $20 more, I would go for the RX65 from Beach camera on Amazon which also comes with a mount of choice. May even be cheaper on their website(checked, it's not cheaper on their own site). I ran this one after owning the V995 and it definitely seemed to run better(less false, earlier alert).

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01LSJE75U?th=1

I now run the Beltronics Diablo(Spanish version of the Beltronics Pro 500 => I believe has the same inards as the Escort 9500ix but with manual gps lockout vs auto on the 9500ix) The Diablo was on clearance from Buydig for $150 and I'm not sure I will ever get one without the GPS lockout feature again. I'm pretty sure the "Diablo" logo also prevents people from thinking that it is a good radar detector so less chance of theft?

Anyways, good luck!

Would you recommend the Diablo over the Max2? I want both Laser and Radar... I guess by the time you're lasered however, it's too late. I may invest in a jammer.

Honestly, idk which you should go for. The price was right when I bought mine as I didn't feel like going over $150. The diablo isn't on/for sale anymore at that price. Not really for sale anywhere it looks like.

I would look into the ones the previous poster listed and escort as well. Over all, they all are good detectors. Read the reviews and get which one you are comfortable spending that amount on. I like beltronics because they seem to be the same as escort but at a lower price when you can get them on sale. The lockout feature is great.

I know the first gen Radenso seemed to have quality issues and I haven't looked at them since. I didn't even know that uniden was in the same class. That shows all I know, apparently I fell for the escort marketing but overall I am satisfied.

I thought the Max1 had issues as well and that was why the Max2 came out so quick. I have no idea how these compare to the redline or if the redline is even still a good one anymore.

Just google Escort vs Radenso, Redline vs Max2, Radenso vs Redline, Pro 500 vs Redline vs 9500ix and most of your answers should be out there.

Again, good luck. Don't buy a shit cobra or whistler and you should be fine if you did your research.

1 - Escort and Beltronics Radar Detectors are both manufactured by the same company
2 - Premier Produx is the authorized reseller of both brands on Newegg - we only sell new, unopened product and all warranties are valid. I've requested to have Premier Produx added to Beltronics dealer locator - same thing I did with Escort - see thread - http://slickdeals.net/f/9040663-escort-passport-max-ii-platinum-radar-detector-w-bluetooth-for-349-99-fs?p=88580499#post88580499
3 - The Beltronics V10 was built as an exclusive Best Buy detector and has been closed out - it's the same as the Beltronics Pro 300 - was $249.99 MSRP, now $174 at Best Buy - $129.99 on this deal.
