I was literally just going to post about this. I got it, needed a new one. Amazon deal of the day. Used ones are going for $200 on eBay so this is a great deal.

I had the original 8500 and it did its job. I have an 9500ix now but I would definitely recommend anything Escort. Especially at that price.

Did anyone else buy this? Really seems to suck for false positives etc, I have a Max and Max2 and are fine, might be going back to Amazon

Have you been getting a lot of false K band signals when on the interstate near some newer cars? I get it a lot with my 9500 ix.

Is it with every detector? Or is it more of just an escort thing?

Used to have one of these a while ago.
Somehow, my car horn would set off the "LASER" alert. On more than one occasion I remember honking-off a race only for it to go off immediately and give me a heart attack :rofl:
Other than that it was pretty solid.

My GTP used to set off Laser on my old 8500 whenever I got over 4k RPM. The new buick enclave always shows k band with my 9500 ix off along with the new Malibu.

i put my 8500 in my desk drawer. nearly every car with blindspot monitoring or radar cruise/brake assist sets the fucking thing off.
