Since the price drop, this detector is a great value. It has the best sensitivity on the market (along with the Escort 9500CI) and is invisible to all radar detector detectors. Also, because it is installed within the car it is "visually" stealth and you don't have to take it down every time you get out of the car to avoid it being stolen.
While it's great that it's installed, it can be time consuming to install it yourself or if you get it installed professionally... it's expensive. Also, it's great sensitivity can be annoying to some. While it may detect cops a great distance away, it will also detect every automatic door opener in your zip code. Putting the mute button in a convenient place can help remedy this. It can also be difficult in deciding where to put every thing (the sensor, the display, the control module, and the external speaker).
It has to be installed almost perfectly to get good results. Nothing can obstruct the sensor! If a tiny bit of grill or bumper is in the way, your results will be SEVERELY degraded. The sensor has to be level and facing straight forward.
Bottom line, this is a great detector. While I probably wouldn't pay over a thousand dollars for it like some before have... but since the price drop, it's definitely a great buy in my opinion.
