    "Cobra makes the best radar dedectors ive come across, I've sticked with my old model for 5 years and it's stayed alive, only breaking when I accidentally spilled coffee over it lol. I got this one since the reviews on other sites said this was one of the best in the bunch"

    "It's pricey but if you can afford it, it boasts one of the best range in the market. Wished those arrows were directional though for better detection. It looks really cool and has that KITT vibe to it with a matching stealth mode to boot."

    "The OG of radar detectors and still the defacto choice for beginners and enthusiasts alike to this day. Great range and detection with its directional arrows. It doesn't have modern conveniences such as GPS or Bluetooth (out of the box) but I have my Uniden R3 for those."

    "Gave into the hype and bought this for me. I have to say, this detector is awesome. Amazing range and detection. Rarely got false alarms and that Dark mode which basically renders it undetectable and is really cool and helpful."

    "Aside from the addition of Wi-Fi capabilities, there are plenty of small but thoughtful changes that make it a nice upgrade over the regular 360 and more than justifies its small price bump. I'm sold."
