    Default I STAND CORRECTED :(

    After Leaving the forum i went ahead and bought my v1 after spending 27 bucks for overnight and spending countless hours and days compareing to my x50 i stand corrected as a man i write this just to say that i was wrong about the v1 and it's profrmance tho the x50 is the only RD that come close to the v1. now im not saying it's the same profrmance just the closest. To me this is a disapointment see my past post as of coming back to the forums i do not kno if i could be much use.

    Are you saying you like the V1 more than the X50? Can you give some examples of why you feel this way?

    Welcome back iKnox

    I am the opposite of you as of this point, I am looking to go back to my x50 soon. I find myself ignoring a lot of the K bands in area since it is always going off, however the v1 detector is my far the best I have ever owned for highway use. It has the best KA range, doesn't false on pop, and the arrows can pinpoint falses very simple. To bad it takes 2 detefctors for what I am looking for, but meh... As of now I am just saving my nickels to get my x50 back

    If you aren't worried about X, just put your V1 on big L (I know, supposedly does nothing for K band but it does).

    Well Sethy I come to a conclusion that you are probably never going to be happy with ANY detector. I predict that you will sell your Blinder and get an Escort or Bel jammer. By the way buy the RX65 instead of the X50

    Well after spending some time with both RD i seem to find that i could config the v1 to my own happyness my X50 is the far best in the whole RD's right now in filtering the falses out. As i recall Jim stating that the V1 is for radar enthuest < sorry for my spelling> well yes it is the/ X50 is the best for plug and PLAY proformace top of the line for ur buck with out touching it to much. As for the V1 it does false alot but as for me i love to look at my RD weather it's the x50 or the v1 just makes me happy. This is my X50 config : City NoX / Band X off/ Expert Meter/ STD TONE/ Brt Max/Pop ON/ and i run it in auto or city most of the time. I rarly get false's and plus i really dont need a bogey counter the goes up to 9 i kinda slow down at the first Ka expert meter shows 2Ka 3K 4X so 2 Ka is good for me.

    V1 Config: X off / More Responsive/ Mute Rear K/Pop On/ I run IN L most of the time.

    Now lets Be Real For a sec there is No Speed Post in my side of town so i dont worry about it as for K i have yet to see a cop in houston use K as for the toll way the Cams use K so im more alert on what im looking for.

    So as of Right now im getting ready to go to Dallas for sum computer security con. but im going to drive with the v1 over there and the x50 back. Now I hope i did not dis credit any of these RD's they are both great and i wish i knew more about the Bel Rx65 sorry i kno i get alot of talk about why dont i give credit to the bel well i have not tryed it if i get ahold of one i will give my review im sorry but i just dont feel the need to go out of my way for the bel maybe someone could enlighten me? anyway this is a crap spelling and grammer and all that good stuff so please dont correct me i have been corrected enough lol. take care RD lovers and let the cops see u roll with a smile

    this guy is clueless.... he should just take the freakin bus. is there a way to ignore his posts all together? I know on most forums there is a way to ignore members and everything they post. looked in the Profile and it doesnt say anything about an ignore feature.

    Now, after reading Iknox posts, I still have no idea what he is talking about... is he in favor of the V1 or the X50? Sentence structure is your friend. :roll:

    Brent, I am not going into another flame war with you. I dont understand why someone can not lay out their opinions on the V1 without you jumping all over them.

    All I am looking for is a detector with good range that doesnt do a whole lot of falsing. two things you really cant get :cry: As for me selling the blinder... have you lost it? We live in ohio for the love of... V1 has excellent range, but I am finding myself ignoring it more and more in the city, and it has been a close call every once in a while. I will be using the escort in the city and the v1 on the highway.. I figure I can't go wrong. Do I jump through a lot of detectors? you bet! a lot of laser jammers? heck no! As for buying the rx65, I need the 2K multiple threat detection :?
