From the PM website, explaining why they chose the Redline:
"Why it Matters: The new Redline is essentially the company’s Passport 9500ix detector with a big boost in horsepower. The Redline, according to Escort’s tester, provides an incredible 13-mile detection range."
Glad they understood the technology behind the M3 platform in the Redline and the similarity to the 9500ix.

Edit: I'm not bashing the Redline in any way, it's a very good product from my short experience with it. I think the blurb on the PM website is kind of embarrassing for Escort since the PM editors plainly don't know anything at all about the technical aspects of the Redline and the blurb calls into question their basis for selecting the Redline for an award.
