Ok so I am new to this forum but I am not new to radar detectors. Prior to getting the 9500ix I had a V1 (best detector IMO). I have a 07 Chrysler 300 I have alot of upgrades and customising done to my car so I had alot of cigar plug wires floating around, So when the 9500ix came out and I heard members on this forum saying that it was better than the V1 I thought ok I need this. I should also say that I live in Montgomery Village, Md and my oh so smart legislators decided to put up those dreaded speed cameras, in the first month of just 1 camera location they mailed 45,000 warning letters so I also needed a speed camera countermeasure. So I decided to sell my trusty V1 which I had had for a year and take the plunge on this piece of junk, after reading reviews from some of the forum members. I have had this unit for 4mos and have used it for 3 yes I know where is the other month well I lost a month of use because the unit had to go back to Escort for repairs twice the first time was a week of having it and then after the second month. oh and by the way it had to go back because I received a speeding ticket because the piece of junk sounded of when I got right next to a Montgomery county officer running 34.7 KA. The first time I sent it back it was the anteena the second tme it was the anteena now I am just tired of this thing and I cant sell it because I am seeing no resell value not like when I sold my V1 the most I could hope to get is $320 (I have researched) paid $564 I purchased my V1 for 399.00 and sold it for 350.00 1 year later I am seeing 9500ix's on ebay selling for way less around the $300 mark. If this thing is so good why is it reselling so low, and before some of you start jumping on me I believe that I have been more than patient with this thing and escort I find it crazy that after only 4 mos and spending $564 9500ix plus gold package that this thing has already broken and had to go back 2 times already. The first time it went bad I was lucky I knew something was wrong and I had my uncle help me test it he is a col. in the Md state police we tested it with 34.7 & 35.5 guns and a old K band gun the range was just terrible the farthest aler I got was at 237 feet we compared it to another 9500ix a 9500ci and a V1, the 9500ci and V1 were identical my cousins 9500ix did a little better at 614 feet farthest warning. I find it hard to believe this detector is as good as a V1 I have not seen it yet I really wanted to like this unit but I can't after my ordeal and on top of that I have been saved 2 times on I270 by drivers using V1 because I was receiving no alerts. I was tired and had to get this of my chest and also because I am stuck with this piece of ****.
