Anyone got one that can provide feedback?

I have one. It's great. I love it and would recommend one to anyone else.
Okay. You sold me.Originally Posted by Joe Diver
I just ordered one on their website and got a confirmation number only (it looks to be the date plus some 58x number which I suspect is the number they've sold so far). No tracking number yet.
Wonder if they've sold out already?
You didn't get the yellow one, did you? Mine isn't yellow and I don't think those are as good.
Took down my X50 and put my new 9500i in its place.
The 9500i is pretty much the same size as the X50 but it does look a bit longer and the front (radar sensing area) is larger.
Once I started my car the 9500i came up and went through the same startup as my X50. I changed the Auto Mute to Off, changed to Expert Meter, and turned SWS On. I sort of missed SWS in my X50. Only saw a few spots where SWS messages came on so I am curious to see if there are any more now. I also set the display to indicate my speed.
It took maybe a minute for the GPS to lock. It stated (voice) that GPS was locked and the little satellite stopped spinning. In subsequent Off and Ons it took merely seconds to lock. Impressive! My Garmin C320 can take a minute or more each time.
I pulled out and immediately my speed was displayed. It is most accurate once you are going a specific speed for a little bit.
I took a ride past some knows Falsies but it didn't go off. I was driving rather slowly so I am assuming the sensitivity was way down with my slow speed.
I took a back road and highway ride to Home Depot to get some stuff for my house so it was a good test. On the way I was only able to get it to alert. It alerted to K Band. Herd a beep then the clear voice "K Band" then more beeping. It never alerted much more than a subtle beep but I was impressed with the sound and clarity of the voice. I never saw what the source was but the area was on Route 22 in NJ. Anyone in NJ Route 22 area knows what that can be like for a radar detector.
I pulled into the Home Depot lot and as I made the turn that is where the X50 would alert to the door opener. The 9500i remained quiet. I was going maybe 10 to 20 MPH. I had to pull up really close (maybe 50 feet) to the door opener to get the 9500i to alert. Once it did I hit my SmartCord Mute and the 9500i when silent read Mute. I hit Mute again it asked me if I wanted to Store it so I hit the Mute button again and it read Stored. The little Satellite rotated to indicate I was in an area with a stored lock out. I drove away from the Home Depot until the satellite indicator stopped spinning (maybe 200 - 300 feet) then I turned around. I got about 200 feet away then noticed the satellite spinning. This is Very Cool! In my area I have many Falsies to deal with. This will certainly make the commute less noisy and distracting. I can only think that when I hear the 9500i go off it will be a real threat.
The drive back was alert free.
Overall, I am really impressed. Now, I have only used it for about 30 minutes but I loved what I saw and heard.
I can't wait to go drive later
I wanted the silver one to reflect heat, but they are out of stock. So I guess I'm stuck with the glossy black one.Originally Posted by Joe Diver
The yellow ones went to Best Buy and the reds to Circuit City.
nice review nascar
so wait you can get these in multiple colors?
X50 doesnt have SWS... or does it? I know my regular 8500 does but i dont think my X50 had it
so if you go to walmart and there are 4 auto doors... what happens?

First off , Why the hell were we being told that the units would not ship until around March 1st, now come to find out they are shipping now?
Second, Why are we just now finding out that they come in various colors?
It's fine to withhold some information but what else are we unaware of? :x
