I just picked up a v1.8 V1 for $240 today ,which I thought was a great deal but apparently not since this guy found his for $75. lol
I had been periodically browsing ebay and such to find a used one to compare with my 9500i (I know they have trial programs but I didn't want to deal with mailing it back and forth). From Valentine's site I only know that it is w/o POP2 protection & euro mode, I've yet to check the revision number since I didn't know how to do it until 10mins ago.
Now I can finally decide which one I like better instead of browsing the v1 forum and then looking at the escort forum. I will give the v1 a test drive for the next few weeks and see if I want to keep it or sell it.
I've never had any issues with my 9500i and I always loved how quite it stayed in the city, however the 9500i does have its downsides, mainly due to its lack of ability to tell me where the bogey is. So I often get startled by cops since I think I've passed them, also when the 9500i continues alerting and I can't spot the bogey it drives me nuts....and those are the times I wish I had arrows.
For the next 2-3 weeks, depending on how well the V1 behaves in atlanta traffic. I will keep it in advanced logic in the city and A-mode on the highway. If I have questions I will definitely look here since this forum has a ridiculous amount of resources.
