My first post on this board, hello all!
I'll start with this. For the last year I have been using an x50 and have LOVED it. Before that I had been using no name lesser brands that really were quite worthless in hindsight. I remember the first time driving around with the x50 there were so many less falses compared to the RMR I previously owned. I loved me x50 . . . . .
Tuesday I wake up to the police calling me. I've been robbed. I go outside to find two police with my car, doors and trunk wide open, x50, subs, deck, and Apex'I SAFCII all gone, not to mention the little things, leatherman, 512MB CF card etc.
When I got the x50 i was curious about the V1, but the x50 was a gift I helped pick out. Since tuesday I have read hundreds of reviews. Lots of V1 owners still like the x50, and lots of x50 owners like the V1. So I ordered it. I have a long road trip coming up in a week so that will be my true test. If it doesn't perform, back it goes for a new x50.
And this time, no leaving expensive things in the car. . . .
P.S. I'll let all know my thoughts about the comparison in a couple of weeks.
