While I tested the V1 for a few months and wasn't TOO impressed with its performance (although it's not a bad detector whatsoever, just way too many falses), I have put a Beltronics STi Magnum on order and is expected to arrive in a few days. From what I've gathered, this thing is basically the same as an Escort Redline.
I have also placed on order a Whistler Pro 695 SE and will be comparing the range of both detectors. Just the main problem is finding speedtraps to crash, and I don't want to spend more than a few hours doing it.
I'll let you know my findings. And while I'm not expecting Whistler to hold up against one of the 2 top performing detectors on the market, I can only imagine the 695SE will come seconds behind.
