the passport ones are really good, but also really pricey...
radio shack has excellent deals on cobra detectors, and they are pretty decent also...

I picked up a Cobra 9 series, it's sweet, has a nice range on it too, gives you plenty of time to slow down. Got it for like a 100.

All good comments, especially about not leaving your detector on the dash when the car is parked. I think it's actually the case that deforms, not the electronics, but it will still screw you up.

From what I've read, and from what I've seen, Valentine will do the best for you in the fast lane. You also have to remember that LIDAR is out there, too.

Fly beneath the radar, if you can.
