i read an article posted in the general section that compared all the detectors against laser guns, and i was quite impressed with how the v1 compared. i'm now willing to shell out the cash that one costs. i however have a couple questions before i go through with a purchase.
i see topics all over referring to 3.xxx models. when i pull a serial number from ebay that belongs to a 1.8 with pop2, it says its fully up to date and there are no upgrades. am i missing something here?
i see that the laser detection is awesome with the v1, but i dont think laser is used all that often in my region judging by mine and my friends experience with his 8500. how does the v1 compare to other detectors with the k, ka, and x bands?
the last thing i'm wondering about. i search froogle and the cheapest v1 is 500 bucks, on ebay, used ones are going for ~400. when i go to the valentine website, they're for sale for 400 brand new. any reasoning behind this?
thanks for any help
