    Default I hope i dont get banned for this but....

    If Radar Roy sells almost every detector out there but V1....

    ... wouldn’t the results which he conducted be biased towards his top products(Bel, Escort)?

    I do not know who else was in the test and what their affiliation was but after reading all the flames from other people that all the tests that crowned the X50 number 1 was biased... what makes SML 05 any different?

    If they crowned V1 number 1, why will people still buy the Bel or Escort?(speed fanatics and all where price difference of a $100 is not a big deal?)

    I am looking forward to the tests Outrun and them will be doing because there should not be any favorites there.

    If Roy could sell the V1 I guarantee he would sell the V1 problem is the V! only lets the main company sell the units...Yes Roy might be considered biased but to be perfectly honest his testing was ment to show the best all around detector for city and highway. And for most people they would choose filtering as an important feature in their detectors. Some V1 owners have admitted that going through major citys they are better off shutting off their V1 even with keeping it in big 'L' advanced. This can be a problem for those detector users that used their detector in major citys...
    Problem in the last testing done by Roy was the filtering wasn't hot at all.

    The last testing Roy did was when the V1 just came out with POP detection the problem with this added POP detection was the added falses incurred by the V1 Automobile mag called it the chicken little of radar detectors. Roy has yet to do a new more recent product test. He is a busy man with little time so give him some time to acquire new products and then he can do his own updated testing.,, Roy's product testing is to make sure that he can sell the best
    -----------------------------------------
    also from a business standpoint if you were Roy and V1 would not let you carry their product would you declare the Winner even if it won by miles???? Of course not cause then you would lose customers
    ------------------------------------------
    SML Doesn't crown winners at all so I don't know who told you that. the only major thing the V1 Excelled at was Laser Detection, and if there was a test of Rear Ka Radar it would of excelled at that. Other than that the V1, RX65, and X50 were pretty much equal

    yup, other than the V1 has great laser detection, arrows *key*, and the rear antenna. everything else is pretty close! as far as city falsing goes with tuning on my V1 I made it better than the x50
