I have been reading quite a bit on here for the last couple months, but now I've set up an account...finally.
Within the last week I broke down and bought my first (tangible) CM, a Whistler XTR-695SE. So far it has been quiet in terms of police radar/laser, but I haven't had a chance to test it extensively. I wish I had the budget to acquire a V1 or an Escort, but for now the Whistler was all I could manage to grab.
Hopefully I'll learn quite a bit more being here.
