Okay. I want to buy a new Valentine One and asked for the older software version instead of the new one, so I called and here it goes:
V1: This is Valentine Research, how may I help you?
Me: Who is this?
V1: My name is ....
Me: Hi, ... I want to order a new Valentine One but I want the older version without POP.
V1: No sir, we only sell the latest RD.
Me: I heard you guys sell a refurbish one, how about those detectors?
V1: No sir, those one also upgrade to the lastest software.
Me: Well, is it possible to have a special order with the older software version of 3.826 for me?
V1: No sir, all the detectors come with the latest software version.
Me: Okay, I have to think about it . Bye.
I did not get into arguing with the rep because it is my money and if they can't even satisfied a customer with a simple request, I should spend money on other detectors or ebay. V1 has a niche market on RD and I wish that V1 is following the company of Leica. That is, you can special order a Leica M with premium price. :wink:
