I have just acquired my third (3rd) radar detector! I have all three of the top three detectors which are the Valentine One, Beltronics Pro RX65, and recently added to the family a Blue Passport 8500 X50 (from Bestbuy). Unfortunately, my Bel RX65 is currently being repaired for freezing issues, but I have the V1 and the X50 running at the same time :shock: Here is the interesting part when I had my RX65 mounted to the right of my V1 the V1 always gave me a false K band to the rear. Now, with the X50 in its place I turned the X50 on first then the V1. After 10 minutes of waiting I saw NOT ONE false from either detector. The RX65 would false on POP from the V1 only if I held the RX65 directly behind it. So, while I've only had the X50 for about two hours now (at time of this post) it has surpassed my expectations. Now I won't be having the X50 or the V1 for much longer as I only have 14 days for the X50 and only until 07-15-06 for the V1. I want to test all of them together but the RX65 is a sure keeper for me. It's the V1 or the X50 that may be sent back or both depending on further and fast testing.
I need all of your help out there for deciding in the final choice. I would be willing to keep all three, or only two, or only one (RX65) if that is my and your general feeling. X and K is not a threat but there is a town near me that uses K band for a Your Speed Is sign that I could test as far as K band but since CHP use KA 99% of the time I don't think testing K band would help but I am going to do it anyways to get a general feel. Laser isn't here (YET!) but I wish to be prepared for it (V1 I know!) So I like different things about different detectors but I ultimately want the one that is best on KA and LASER but not so much on LASER.
So I will run a poll for only 14 days and see what the general feel is about all three. And thanks in advance for all of your help! And please post a more detailed answer if you would like to share so I can make a better decision!
