I still have 2 LRD950s from when they were on sale for around $150. I am running the DFR7 1.10e firmware. Driving to work today, I got an awesome detection from a CHP sitting really far back on an on-ramp running 34.7. There is no way that you could have seen him until it was too late so without a radar detector you would be toast. It took me a while to find him even with a radar detector but the Uniden gave me plenty of warning. I have K band turned off and I am running Ka Narrow and the result is almost no falses. For the $150, this detector was an absolute steal for California. At $300, it's still a great value if you want GPS.
