    Valentine Research is the best place and if you want to save some money you have to call and ask to be on the returned unit list $359.
    No one has been able to tell the difference but until a few more weeks go by you might have a problem getting the new 3.826 version as I doubt you will be able to request it with this method.
    Marlinspike has an early POP 2 for sell, PM him and maybe you can cut a deal.

    Unless something has changed, returned V1s are flashed to current release level before shipment. I've done 2 over the years and they are indistinguishable from new.

    I have had mine now for almost a month. Shouldn't all brand new V-1's be the new 3.826 version?
