    Default 1st Post

    Today is the day. I have viewed the incredibly informative information provided on this forum, but had yet to make the obligatory first post. I have been a long-time Bel user and was always pleased with my detector's performance. Although considered a lower-end detector, my V950 (Older Series S7 antenna) provided many years of radar saves, however, as of late, I have felt less confident in its abilities to Instant On range (as its range is lacking significantly over higher end detectors). I have researched all summer and was excited to hear about the upcoming Escort RedLine. I immediately pre-ordered as I felt the great display features coupled with "V1 Like Sensitivity" would be an amazing combination. However, upon reading the first impressions of the RedLine, I have made the decision to purchase the Valentine One. I wish I had the "stealth" features for my travels into NOVA and the Spec mode of the Bel/Escorts, but I guess you can't sacrifice performance at the end of the day. Also, to supplement my V1, I have purchased the new Cheetah C50 and expect it to arrive this Friday as well. I reside in Maryland and beginning October 1, our speed cameras expand statewide. While even my current Bel alerts to the stationary and mobile K-Band locations, the Village of Chevy Chase recently installed Laser Speed Cameras. My hope is the C50 database will assist here. Let me know your thoughts. I know there's so much to decide on in setting the V1 to a balance between too many falses and having the sensitivity to pick up short bursts of radar (ie Quick Trigger)

    You made the right choice going with the V1. It is the best radar detector against QT and I/O. Be sure to install the V1 up high near your RVM; you should also consider getting the V1's concealed display. If you get pulled over for using a RD, give the cop your old Bel instead of the V1.
