well i do like it i have to admit. it saved me already few times. and it's not chatty. seems it alerts when it's real except those doors on K.
but it's really hard to tell what kind of alert i missed ...if any.
two things i find out that i didnt know before i got the X50.
1) X50 Rev 5 is better then 6.x . (well i still didnt get a real answer for that, just personal opinions here. and reviews of Rev 5 on GOL. by the way why they don't try the 6.x ?? i mean what is the point to check a detector that you cannot buy new anymore?)
2) V1 got a Euro Mode that i may need on my trips over there.
In this forum there a real overwhelming number of people that push towards the V1. it is like a brain wash in a way. So i'm not sure anymore .
Not to mention , that who knows who is real person here , and who is just one of the dealers hiding behind a legit user or users. i'm sure there some of that over here. it's the nature of the internet ...
anyhow my dilemma is this . i can return the X50 that i got for $270 (after returning an old Bell 590i). and get a V1 for $400 + $50 for audio(<- that is ridicules IMO).
or refurbish V1 <- any one here got a long term experience with a refurbish ? how reliable are they ?
another option is to keep the X50 and in the price difference ($180) i can buy Vail or put it towards a jammer .
i mean X50 + vail or jammer isnt better then a V1 by itself ?
they are very close in performance anyhow.
