    I have had escort Passport 7500 for 2 or three years and hasn't let me down once!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Go with the 8500 or the Valentine. Especially if you speed much, pay the extra money and it will be worth it in the end

    I take it NO BODY likes VAlentine ??

    Bobby D, Cobra can't be the worst !

    I bought a case of no name radar detectors once . They had all the latest stuff in them . They cost me about $19 a peice . They worked better then any of my friends radars did including escort,(which I had 2 of) , bell, cobra, & uniden. We often ran 2 vehicles on trips and always compared which one did what . I can't beleive they worked at all !

    We'll see how my "tire chock" , I mean , Cobra works this week on my trip .

    The Passport 8500s and S2s that I sell are brand new A quality still in original shrink wrap. With Passport, you will get all the performance that a radar detector can offer. The $150 savings can be used to put gas in your boat. BTW, I got a radar speeding ticket on the Intracoastal Waterway this weekend. Manatee speed zone was 25mph and I got clocked crawling at 46. Maybe we should put radar detectors on our boats too.

    THe Passport 8500 works awesome, rates best at and is a better value. There is no ticket that the Passport would not detect that could be detected by the Valentine 1 or vice versa.

    My store sells about 30 Escort Passports every month and I never have unhappy customers. I personally have used both. The Passport get the job done as well for less money.

    I my book, why spend more if you can get the job done. Either it picks up radar well or it doesnt. It either falses excesively or it doesnt. THe 8500 does the job as well as it is going to get.
