    My limit is $100, I need a radar detector for my car. Nothing uber fancy.

    What would you suggest?

    I know nothing about them. So far this is what has been suggested to me...

    BEL Express 925


    Radar vs. Laser? I have no idea really..

    Those are each $300-400...not gonna happen. I read Beltronics, Escort and Valentine are the best brands to go with. Guess I'll have to keep reading reviews for budget models.

    I have a Viper that I got for $140 at Radio Shack. Very happy with it. I am confident that it has kept me ticket-free on my many trips along I-5.
