So here's the thing. I like blue displays, I like frequency displays, I like arrows, and I like really impressive capabilities in terms of raw performance. Obviously can't get all four in the same package (yet).
I have a V1 right now, and I formerly ran an 8500 x50.
The Redline is apparently on par or better than the V1 -- no independent tests yet (excluding Radartest.com for the time being) -- but the GoL tests of the 9500i / 9500ix versus the V1 tell a mixed story. The 08/2007 test has it sitting virtually even with the Valentine, but the 08/2009 test has the 9500ix getting kicked around a bit.
For you 9500ix AND V1 users, what's the story here? People told me previously that the later GoL results are true to "real world" experiences for long-time users of both detectors, but I figured I'd check in before dropping a few hundred on a toy.
