    For now, and now only, I'd say V1 because of the Spectre leakage, nice looking case, laser detection, etc.

    But I am hoping that soon I'll have a different opinion, if you know what I mean :wink: :wink:

    It comes down to features and Laser detection.

    The ability to detect radar at this point in time is almost irrelevant as all three detect at adequate ranges. Of course, there is no protection whatsoever from Instant on practices.

    V1 kicks ass on laser detection and does just as good as the X50 and RX65 on radar sources. The X50 has a ton of features, but not enough to bridge the gap. My vote is for the V1.

    V1 because of superior laser detection and the arrows

    Well being biased having only had one of the top three which is now become outdated.

    Bel985

    Besides alerting me to real threats, I find this RD to be VERY quiet, on average I get 1 to 2 false weak alerts, and of those false alerts they cancel out automaticly within 3-4 seconds. Hell some days it just sits quiet, I get worried, but then later it alerts and I soon find a LEO.

    I use autoscan in the busy city, and highway on the highway, I never get false alerts (on the highway) unless its a DAM construction drone (the traffic around me is looking at me like I am crazy for going slow untill I can confirm this crap).

    No regreats spending the money for this top pick over two years ago.

    Though I own an X50 and swear by it as an amazing detector, I still say it's impossible to top the V1 given the current models out today.

    Don't worry. Some new little thing (or maybe even a big thing) will come up within three months which will switch the results of this poll around if it were to be done again.
