I just phone ordered a V1 and the new carrying case. I really drove myself 'nuts' over this or a Passport 9500i, or even the Bel STi. I know they are all excellent, but the look and upgrade support/repair seems to be pretty descent with Valentine.
I would expect the latest version with this unit. I love the design of the unit. Anything would be an improvement over my current RD. I use a Whistler Pro-73. It's not bad and has saved me some tickets for sure, but the filtering is just awful. My other complaint is not much early warning before it goes off. Even with mode selection it gets confused on the real band it's trying to filter. As the old saying goes "You get what you pay for."
I have heard good things about their new line up, but I am looking for something I personally feel a little more 'confident' with. The V1 seems to fill that gap after reading here, and I feel great and excited to receive it this Thursday.
Any help and assistance greatly welcomed!!!
