In your opinion, what's the best radar detector/diffuser out there? And do you know how difficult it is to install one of them?

Do you want to hard-wire the radar detector?

They're easy to use if you don't want to hard wire them into your car. Just stick it to your winder (inside) and plug it into the cig. lighter. :)

I did some reading on laser detection, and the type of laser detection/detector simply varies by location.

Some cities/jurisdictions are "on top" of their game and got the latest/greatest guns to beat detection, but others, are way off, and can be beat with an old Cobra/Whistler from 1994 :)

I hear, it helps to know someone in law enforcement - since it depends where you'll be driving. I.E. Sheriff and State Troopers likely have better radar than city police for example ;)

The best radar detectors are:
Windshield mounted:
-Escort passport 8500x50
-Beltronics RX65
-Escort passport 9500ix (a 8500x50 with GPS technology)
-Beltronics STI
-Beltronics GX65 (a RX65 with GPS technology )

The X50 and the RX65 are basically the same radar detector but think of the X50 as a luxury car with all the bells and whistles and the RX65 as a muscle car. Some places radar detectors are illegal, for these places or professional drivers there is the Beltronics STI. It is one of the only radar detectors undetectable to the spectre 3 radar detector detector.

The only good radar detectors come from Escort and Beltronics, they are actually the same company. Lots of people like Cobra and Valentine, but the Cobra's have terrible range and the valentine has false alerts all of the time it drives you crazy!. If you are serious about detectors don't go cheap. Also don't waste your money on Rock Mountain Radar Jammers, they don't work! Plus radar jammers are illegal and a Federal offense.

Laser is a whole different bag of worms than Radar. It is near impossible to detect unless it hits your radar detector and by then it is to late and they have your speed. You need a laser jammer (not the same as a radar jammer and not illegal in most places).
