I have an Escort 8500. It works. I can pick up a radar (Ka) band from over a mile away, given good line of sight. But remember that radar basically works in a straight line (barring any reflections), so if you come around a corner or over a hill really fast and you didn't get a radar tone until you had line of sight with a police officer, then you're still screwed. In other words, you still need to drive smart.
