Well I think I am now an official zombie. I have convinced someone to buy a $400 V1. One of my neighbors just got a brand new BMW that was upwards of $60-70K I think. I figured if she can shell out that much for a car she can afford a top dog RD. I think everyone near me knows I am addicted to RD'ers, so naturally they came to me for advice.
Anyways I tried to give the most fair review of the 9500i (what I know of it) and the V1. I am probably pretty sure I leaned more towards the V1 since I own one, but she seemed to trust my judgment and went ahead and ordered it. She should get it in a few days and I am really excited to help her set it up and maybe even hardwire it (if she is up to it)!
So like it is stated. Does this make me a real V1 zombie? I just consider this a great success in life.
