i just officially joined the V1 community as of last Wednesday (yesterday). i placed an order for a returned unit through V1, and was number 3 on the wait list. V1 rep said it'll probably be a few weeks until they get a return and get one out to me.
well guess what, as i was heading to school today, i get a phone call. '513' was the incoming number, so i was like, WTF? since when were numbers only 3 digits? i let it ring about 2 times before i decided to pick it up. and what news do i hear? my V1 is being shipped out! that is a quick turnaround! saved $40 by just waiting one day and they ship from cincinnati, so it'll be here in chicago probably by tomorrow! awesome!
i currently own a Beltronics Express 925. it was good, had it for about half a year, before i bit the bullet to upgrade to better sensitivity and [strongbad] ARROWWWSS [/strongbad] :twisted: i must say, customer service from V1 has been very good....now only if they sent me the CORRECT tracking number so i'm not sitting at the edge of my seat waiting for the UPS man to bring me a nice gift!
i'm already in the process of selling off my 925
no, i dont really NEED a V1. for that matter, i dont think any of us NEEDS a radar detector. but im a gadget junkie and i believe this really is a good investment that can prove its worth.
BTW..long time reader, just recently signed up, and even fewer poster. so i'm definitely not a newbie to the scene! glad to finally be in the top tier!
