I think most of us selling anything probably start with a search to see if anyone has sold a similar item and base our asking price on that. Just my personal opinion but I think the numbers support my comment - list it here and Ebay, FaceBook, etc., and you're probably going to be able to ask a higher amount on Ebay unless it's something unique (like a DE lidar gun where it will literally be sold in a matter of minutes). Detectors, like many things, have been selling pretty rapidly on Ebay over the past year.

Is $200 ok? It cost $400 brand new I think. I need to sell it in a week.

$200 is really steep for a 9500ix. It has no bsm filtering. You will probably get no more than 75 dollars for that RD on here. You will have better luck selling it on FB marketplace or Ebay where demand might be higher.

Yes, look on eBay to check the asking prices for used 9500ix detectors. I saw one for $175 Buy It Now or Best Offer. Also look at the Completed Listings and see what they were asking when the auction ended.

I sold my 9500ix a couple of months ago for $200. I think that's probably about the best you could do.

The only person that would pay that much for an unusable detector would be a sucker that does not know any better. The only user that would be able to run a 9500ix would be someone that lives in an area where K band can be turned off completely.

Why would you want to turn off K-Band?

What's BSM filtering ?

Vehicle Blind-Spot Monitoring (BSM). Blind-spot monitoring uses a set of sensors mounted on the side mirrors or rear bumper to detect vehicles in the adjacent lanes. If the sensors detect something, they'll alert you via an audible and/or visual warning. These operate within the K-band and cause radar detectors to false alert to them.

Which is exactly the case here in SoCal. In 20+ years of radar detector use going back to the original Passport 8500, I've never seen K band used by LEO anywhere around here.

Yup California is one state where all they run is KA and laser. Perfect for turning K off

Do some reading on the forum to get up to speed. For the last 5-7 years new cars have collision avoidance and blind spot monitoring systems. They function on the same K band frequency as police K band radar. Detector company's have been scrambling to come up with filtering systems to combat this. For Escort they call it IVT filtering and its in their newer detectors. The 9500ix is obsolete and will probably give you a false alert 40-50 times an hour if not more. The only person that could run it is someone in California because that state does not use K band. So thats why you would turn K band off.

State of California must think K band leaves too much of a carbon footprint.

I just received my Redline 360C today. It is replacing my 9500ix. The 9500 falses terribly now without filtering and became too much of an annoyance on the interstate. I am giving mine away to a friend who has nothing. It is better than nothing, but for me, not much.

Wow! That's quite an upgrade and you're going to love the Redline's performance along with the BSM filtering and the arrows. Enjoy!

My concern with the 9500ix (I have 3) is the extremely poor performance on Ka Bands.
In some tests my R7 pulls off 22 times the reception distance, where 9500ix only alerts right at the kill zone.
Tested on 2 different 9500's, 33.8, 34.7, 35.5 and same results.
It's a hazard to CM users everywhere.
FYI, if you can stand all the BSM falses, K Band receptions are very close to Max 2 ranges. Escort has done K Band a long time so they got that right pre-BSM dates.

Yeah, when I had it, it was no match at all for the Redline-O which I've kept along with my R7.
