Yes, Valentine should have the latest firmware. However, I've still heard they're shipping out the rest of the 3.864's, but 3.871's are making it out.
Valentine Research only sells direct. They don't use distributors. That's why you're never going to see a better price from a seller other than VR. Buy from VR.
Yes, if you buy from V1 you will pretty much get the newest version, although there where people getting 3.864 when the 3.871 was out, but there was no difference in performance, just a different board. I haven't been to buyradardetectors.com, but I'm assuming that they had to mark it up since VR doesn't use distributors, so they had to buy them at 399.99 and mark them up to make money. You would stand a way better chance to get the newest firmware from V1 then anywhere else.
Thanks a lot. I guess they are only selling for a higher price because you are guaranteed to get the latest firmware. I'll save $100 and take my chance at getting one that probably is just as useful.

I would actually like to see someone test the 3.864 and the 3.872. I know Valentine says there is no performance difference but I would actually like someone to test it. They might be saying there is no difference so they don't get a hundred RD back for upgrades. I would just like to see it tested that's all, to make sure there is no difference.

I have seen Notepad Paper w/Handwriting Analysis pass 100% for evidence...
It's called ESI Data...

It's easy to "dummy up electronic documents," says computer forensic examiner John Simek. Although the Federal Rules of Evidence do not single out digital information for special handling, the question of e-files' foundation and authentication remains a complicated problem.
BACK ON TOPIC...
