Last night I posted my quick review for the V1, so I thought I would follow it up with an STi, 9500i, & X50 review.
Looks: Magnesium Casing, Display is Bright - Full Auto Dark, Easy to read & understand in all conditions, 3 Easy Buttons.
Sensitivity: Dominates all radar bands, but laser is questionable.
Quality: Built like a tank, don't feel like a beta tester compared to V1.
Support: Fixed 33.8 Bug, and customer service has really improved.
Features: Auto mute, Spec Display, Autodim, City No X
Falsing: Auto mode is a incredible around town. City No X is a feature every detector should have.
Value: Premium price, but comes with remote mount speaker, hardwire kit, & one of a kind carrying case.
Ease of Use: Easiest detector to program. Can safely be programmed while driving down the interstate.
Ramp up: Visual ramp up is great, audible ramp up leaves a bit to be desired.
Tone Alerts: Loud & VERY VERY Distinctive. I don't care for the X & K band tone, but the Ka tone is incredible.
Spectre Immunity: Only dash mounted radar detector that is completely immune to spectre.
