Well, I decided to go with the V1. About 5 minutes ago, I placed my order for the $400 product :shock:.
I sure hope that I am not making a mistake! If they get the detection capability for the MPH Z-35 gun, am I going to have to pay to upgrade? That was one of the only drawbacks that I could see with this device. That and the falsing issues that I have read about on this site.
I do have a plan though. Escort says my 8500 (non X50) will be refurbished to "factory specs" for $50. Then I can sell it on E-Bay for around $100 maybe a little more. That money, coupled with the $50 trade in for my Cobra XR-1010 will allow me to get a 8500 X50 for about $180 ish. Then, I can have the best of both worlds. Nothing like having my cake and eating it too.
I am looking forward to getting my V1. I hope it lives up to the hype, and I don't have to excercise my 30 day money back guarantee. 8)
