Pros size and cost
Cons detection and problem with false laser alerts when driving toward the sun
Recommended it? No

The radar detector is good, not great with regard to Ka band detection. Not nearly as good as the Valentine, but of course a bit less money. Big problem though when driving into the sun either in the morning or late in the afternoon as it sets off the laser warning alert which continues until the... Read full review »


The most difficult company to work with.

2 Helpfuls 3 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros Good product, it works.
Cons Co. is dogmatic
Recommended it? No

Aside from trying to find an authorized dealer in the United States. They make it 100% clear by providing the "unauthorized" list of dealers and not focusing on providing a positive buying experience for potential customers. If you go to the website, you will not find anything on... Read full review »

Cons coiled power cord. would like a straight wire smartplug. performance cons=none!!
Recommended it? Yes

After reading many many reviews online about the V1,8500 and 9500, and the RX65, I bought an RX65 (version 6.3)about 2 months ago and this thing has already paid for itself 10 fold. I purchased it after my previous, and lower caliber, detector failed to save me(i saw the unmarked and slowed and was... Read full review »


If you speed, you want this!

Pros Best way to protect you from speed detectors IMHO.
Cons No way to email them
Recommended it? Yes

My wife bought this for me because she knows I may exceed the speed limit sometimes. Perhaps she thought she'd save us money on insurance if I got caught! Due to some family things, I had to drive from NC to OH and back 3 times within 2 months. The first trip was with some cheap detector which I... Read full review »


Good Detector - Poor Warranty & Durability

5 Helpfuls 6 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros Excellent Ka band response and false signal rejection
Cons Poor durability and fraudulent warranty
Recommended it? No

I bought the unit brand new from a reliable internet vendor. It worked fine for 3 months then died. Receipt in hand, I called Bel for warranty service whereupon they informed me they wouldn't honor the warranty unless it was purchased from an "authorized" dealer. No where in their written warranty... Read full review »

Pros pretty lights
Cons over priced, turns itself on and off repeatedly, poor customer service
Recommended it? No

I have used radar detectors for 20 years.
When I purchased the Beltronics RX65, I was looking for quality and improved performance over my Cobra.

I was looking for quick detection of KA Band which is used a lot in my state. This detector was not as effective as my $130 Cobra. To make... Read full review »

Pros Price, detection (KA band) and looks
Cons Forget Laser detection!
Recommended it? Yes

The RX65 is one of the best detectors on the market. I replaced my Beltronic 985 with the RX65. I have had to make a few minor mods. I eliminated X band and K band, as K band went off every time I passed a store with an alarm system (which is every corner). I found out that in order to change K... Read full review »

Pros Works well with K, Ka band & laser too. It's trustworthy.
Cons You will get false alarms (as do every detector I've owned)
Recommended it? Yes

I've had the RX65 for 6 months with no problems. Smart plug is a nice feature. You have to filter out the clutter yourself Read full review »

I bought 2 of these, 1 for each car and after 13 months, they both started turning off and on repeatedly for no reason, to the point where they do not turn on at all now.

Pros Ease of use, shows multiple incoming bands, mute on power connector
Cons Price? maybe?
Recommended it? Yes

I recently purchased the RX65 after my 985 detector was stolen. I had reservations because I was so impressed with Bel's 985. Well, I wasn't left hanging...the RX65 is a good at detection (maybe better) than the 985 but has better features and a little easier to use (the 985 wasn't hard to use)... Read full review »

Pros Better than nothing, if you have money to throw away.
Cons TOO MANY FALSE ALERTS!!!!!!<br>Breaks twice in 3 years.
Recommended it? No

It's now 3 years since I bought this and it has broken twice.  The first time I paid around $50.  1 year later it breaks again.  It's in the garbage along with my opinion of Bel. 

This is my first radar detector since the 1970's, and is used 95% of the time in heavily urban streets and... Read full review »

Pros Work GREAT when they work
Cons 2 Failed in 3 months, long turnaround time, bell hard to deal with warranty
Recommended it? No

Bought 2 of these new on 4-11-06. One failed within 30 days, and the other within 3 months. The way BOTH of them failed is that when you plug them in, the lights come on for a split second then they power off. No beeps are emitted. I called to return them and they said they knew nothing about the... Read full review »

Pros Apparently it's the best out there
Cons Mounting clip won't stay in the unit.
Recommended it? No

This unit has yet to detect my local police hub, which my 12 year old cobra radar detector always did. I have driven past many cops now and the detector has not gone off whereas my old detector would.

Also, the clip that inserts into the unit will not stay in after only two weeks!!

yeah, same thing here, "service required" after a couple of days. the tech support sucks. they put you on hold forever, and then tell you to ship it back at your expense and pay 75 bucks because i bought mine brand new on ebay. i never left mine on in the car for more than a few minutes with the...

The bel rx-65 is one of the "Top 3" radar detectors made today. I currently own both of the other 2, inclunding the v1 and escort x50. The Rx-65 is perfect detector for the serious driver.

Pros some reviews say it is the best

I owned this radar detector for 3 days before Service Required is now constantly displayed. I do not know what I was thinking when I purchased this product since I have owned a cordless Bel 945 as well as a 985 and both had to be sent in for problems. The 945 stopped making the beeping noise, the... Read full review »

I have had all 3 top line radar detectors. The V1 1.8, The Passport 8500 X50, and this Bel RX65. They all have their ups and downs.
