As some of you may know I have had my V1 for about 5 days now, and performance has been less than stellar. Granted it is miles ahead of my old RD, i'm wondering if it is really worth the extra 100, over the x50.
#1. The arrows are a great feature, but really necessary? Its good to know whether LEO is infront or behind you I supose, but shouldnt you slow down anyways? Also, as Mike V says on his website, you cant get radard from the side (mine doesnt even really pick up side anyways) so whats the point of the side arrows? Isnt it speculated that the arrows also might slow down response time?
#2. From what I have been reading on various website (http://www.speedzones.com/Laserdetection.html to name one), the V1s KA detection is worse than the of the x50, rx65, and even some $200 dollar models. For most people, isnt KA going to be the biggest threat? I mean sure V1 has the best laser, but as stated on the website about, V1 didnt even pick it up on the car infront of it...so when you're hit you're hit and there isnt much you can do about it. In my opinion I would rather have excellent KA than excellent laser...wouldnt most agree?
I love my V1 but im wondering if I really made the right choice. The one thing that is making me hang onto it is the $75 upgrade thing they have going on, But the results I have been seeing on various websites is very disapointing to me. Perhaps they are just bias towards one particular RD and just swung the results in favor of that one? I hope this is the case, lol. Because although part of me knows that V1 might not be worth the extra cash, another part of me wants to keep it.
