I have been on a rant as of late on products that don't work as advertised I started to accumulate more info that makes me happier each day that I do own a V1. Initially as I looked at the V1 I was unhappy, but as I kept digging I found that I don't have a lot to be unhappy about.
The recent GOL radar detector tests seem to show that the V1 is clearly on top of the radar heap. Happy@ss has let it slip that the V1 is the only detector to detect Pop, tests have shown the V1 is able to detect Stealth(while the V1's closest competition is blind), and nobody disputes the V1 is the king of laser. VR has allowed us to keep updating our V1's to the latest and greatest(saving us time and money over the long haul), and better yet they take good care of us when we call, have questions, or send in our stuff for upgrade. All things considered VR is doing a pretty good job staying on top of the latest threats even though they don't appear too enthusiastic about doing it when it first becomes a threat.
The list of issues with the competition seems to keep growing as they are falling further behind the existing technology. Someone at those other companies need to take notes from VR as they are apparently doing it right... Even if it doesn't look like they are on top of things.
