    Default 8500 Original question

    Why is the original 8500 so underated and forgotten?

    Weren't these like top 2 a few years back...

    If so then why the heck do people still brag about v1 that was out in that era ....
    Ohh and what year was the last 8500 rev 15 made in?

    You make a good point, and in fact some original 8500's will beat some X50's some of the time. Instead of buying a brand new X50 only to disable POP mode, people could save some $$$ and just but an original 8500. The only problem with that, is that you can no longer buy new orignal 8500's with a warranty, and a warranty is important to a lot of people.
