Hey everyone. My first post here, but I am by no means a newbie to RD's. Have had one since the early 80's, and have primarily been Escort/Passport. I currently have a non X50 8500 and am considering one of the 9500 models, but which one?
I considered giving the V1 a try as it seems everyone talks about them and I have never tried it. My only drawback is all the falsing they seem to do. Sure, I know they may have excellent sensitivity and reception, but from what I have read, the higher number of falsing leaves a lot to be desired. Whenever my wife or one of the kids is with me and my Escort falses, they start fussing and either mute or unplug it so I know the V1 is out of the question.
My question for you is which one I shoud get. I live in a very rural area and only make it to a major city about once a month. My job requires me to travel to about 5 different towns a week, but none of them use redlight cameras or anything like that. Would the 9500ix really be worth the extra money or would I be better off with just the 9500i?
Also, most of the research I have been doing about these models in the forum has been older comments or posts. Have these models been improved more than original? Thanks in advance.
