I received my new 9500i recently and I am very happy with it. I had one of the very first 9500i's when they first came out but I was not pleased with it so I returned it. I went back to my 8500 which is a very good unit. I wanted something more recent so I went with the 8500x50 but was not very impressed over the 8500 so I returned it, with no hassle from Escort. I thought I would try the latest version of the 9500i and I'm glad I did. The sensitivity is very good and the lack of false alarms is a pleasure. I see a lot of hype over the V1 but the features of the 9500i can't be denied. When it comes to sensitivity the 8500, 8500x50 and the 9500i get the job done. After awhile the distance range of detectors just becomes academic, if you get enough warning there is radar ahead to keep you out of trouble what more do you need?
