    Oh yeah, big improvements. What is the version number of the one that you bought?

    For about $90.00 more you could buy a brand new unit directly from Valentine...... :shock:

    Sorry but your $35.00 V1 doesn't appear to be that much of a bargain

    :?

    $90 plus the "upgrade" of 280 which is about 370, or what VR will charge for a returned unit with shipping.

    MSRP for a V1 $399.00.
    You already spent $35.00 plus you'll need $280.00 in upgrades
    total $315.00.

    $399.00 - $315.00 = $84.00

    Sometimes Valentine has new "out of box" units that are discounted so you can get one cheaper than $399.00

    Sooooooo...........your "buddy" didn't really do you any favours

    :shock:

    I'm not seeing the problem with getting a V1 for $35. That's an insanely good deal on a working unit of any age. As has already been mentioned you can sell it on ebay and probably get at least $200 for it. That's half the cost toward a brand new unit!
