I've had this radar detector for a little over a year, and it has definitely paid for itself in traffic tickets. I tend to have a heavy foot when I drive, and this little thing gives me a little extra warning. Its easy to install - just stick the suction cup bracket on your windshield and plug it in. It detects a few different kinds of radar as well as laser, although if it does detect laser, its probably too late since that means you've already been hit with the gun to detect your speed. It does tend to give a lot of false alarms, especially when passing through areas with a lot of stores, etc that might have motion activated doors or alarms. However, I would rather get a few false alarms than get costly speeding tickets and spend time in court and get points on my license.

Technology today prevents most radar detectors from being much good.  Yes, the Cobra does alert you when there is a cop, however, it doesn't alert you until you are already in the radar and ten feet from the cop.  It works if you simply want to know there is a cop for no reason other than knowing.  If you are one who likes to depress the gas pedal and get from point A to point B as quickly as possible, without interruptions from the local sheriff, don't depend on this radar detector to prevent that from happening.  I think the cops are getting a little smarter today.  If you want a good one, you're going to have to pay big bucks for it.

This Cobra Radar Detector works better than the high price brand

By 

from Creve Coeur, IL

Comments about Cobra - XRS Radar Detector:

This Cobra radar detector makes me smile.....why you ask?  My husband spent about twice the amount that I did for a different brand radar detector saying his would be better and it doesn't even compare!  Mine will pick up signals about half as far ahead as his does.  Sometimes his wont even pick up a signal and my Cobra will be screaming Cop ahead!  This radar detector is amazing to me for the price, I can promise you won't be disappointed with this purchase!  I like how it lets you pick what signals it will alarm and how it will alarm you that there is a signal being detected.  This is a great radar detector for the price....well worth the money.  It has paid for itself over and over with my lead foot!

this has to be the best dector that i have ever had.

By 

from Elkhart, IN

Comments about Cobra - XRS Radar Detector:

 **Cobra - XRS 9430 Radar Detector**  is the best dector that i have ever bought. picks up in a long distance and is very accurate. As soon as i bought it i did a little test on it and plugged it in and drove and just looked for cops to see if it really was as good as i had herd. it was very accurate and noticed alot of the cops that i had seen. the only down fall would be that if you do happen to get pulled over and a cop does see it that means that you are more likely to get issued a ticket.

Very Satisfied!

By 

from Sault Sainte Marie, MI

Comments about Cobra - XRS Radar Detector:

I finally decided to buy a radar detector because it seemed that teens driving or college kids get harassed the most at the end of the month by the authorities for little things like having an air freshener hanging from your rear view mirror or got 3 mph over the speed limit when it gets toward the end of the month. I would have to say it is the best investment I have made and I bought the Cobra XRS 9430 and it works wonder. It isn't as annoying as other ones I have seen and it is easy to figure out. I would definitely recommend this product!

Cobra XRS 9439 keeps me out of the courthouse paying tickets

By 

from Cupertino, CA

Comments about Cobra - XRS Radar Detector:

Cobra XRS 9439 Radar Detector is one of the best on the market. Gives me both front and back detection, without a lot of false detections. Makes me feel confortable when I want to drive a little faster, that I won't have the flashing light in my rear-view window. Really a good but for the price.

Dont look for any other brand because this is the best one.

By 

from Brownstown, WA

Comments about Cobra - XRS Radar Detector:

The Cobra XRS 9430 Radar detector is the best one ive seen yet. What I like about it is that the lights are ultra bright which makes it easy to see. Also it has Voice Alert which is awsome because instead of having to look at the detector and taking your attention off the road, all you have to do is listen. Would recomend this radar detector to everyone I know looking for one. What makes this the best radar detector is the price. It has alot of the same features as the spendy ones and some that the others dont. But the price is way far cheaper than the others.

i think these things should be free for everyone

By 

from Brigantine, NJ

Comments about Cobra - XRS Radar Detector:

i really think rador detectors are great.they are the one way we have an up on these kids that are our police officers.yeah they protect and serve,serve a bunch of crap.there are so many headlines of crooked cop caught in the act,harrasment cases pending...i like that you can know when they are hidding around a bend and are one ahead.mastly for speeders-i have a heavy foot and it is great to know when i need to slow down to avoid being treated like a criminal for speeding.also for the really bad dangerous speeders it keeps them in check knowing the piggies are there..

The cobra is the best radar on the market.

By 

from Mesquite, TX

Comments about Cobra - XRS Radar Detector:

**The Cobra - XRS 9430 Radar Detector works excellent! I bought this for my husbands birthday gift and he loves it. The cobra has already saved us on getting many spending tickets. It has a great range of radar. It was really easy to install just plug it into the cig litter and your ready. It comes with the velcrow strips or a suction cup opitions. Which comes in handy during night and day so the placing of the radar isnt to obvious to PREDATORS. I would recommend this to all those out there who have lead feet. It is an excellent inexpensive product that works great! This is the best radar on the market. I love it. It is wonderful. This is the only one I have ever used. It is a must buy.**
