I see a few 65's for around 230, and a few v1's for around 325. My question is, how long do these units typically last? Can i realistically expect them to work flawlessly for 5 years or so? Or is it like an i-pod and more like a year and a half and they're done? Anyone who has had one of these or even one of the escort's, how long have you had it, and how well do they hold up? Any other input will also be appreciated

    thanks in advance
    The Valentine One holds up very well and they back their products 100% and they rarely charge you for anything in the future.

    Call Valentine Research at 1 800 331 3030 and ask for a returned V1 and you will get 10% off the retail price of $399. Tell them you don't mind being put on the waiting list. Guaranteed, they will ship a V1 out within 2 days. It will be the latest version V1.8 POP2 w/ Euro-mode and 3.863 firmware and that comes with all the accessories and a 1 year warranty.

    Because they are not authorized sellers so you get no warranty and it is probably refurbished in Mexico. Escort and Bel are the same company and this happens frequently with their products. The link you provided is from a seller named "radarandmore" and he is not an authorized seller.

    Unauthorized Reseller List
    Purchase of Beltronics products from an unauthorized reseller may exclude you from Beltronics warranty, service or support. Also, you should be aware that certain unauthorized resellers have been charged with criminal misconduct.

    Please protect yourself - purchase from authorized resellers only.
    Unauthorized resellers may show a pattern of complaints if you check with the Better Business Bureau.

    You may also find other complaints online about some unauthorized resellers.

    Pictures taken of some unauthorized reseller locations have shown shuttered warehouses, mailbox stores, or apartment buildings.

    Warranty Exclusions
    Warranty does not apply to your product under any of the following conditions:

    The serial number has been removed or modified.
    Your product has been subjected to misuse or damage (including water damage, physical abuse and/or improper installation).
    Your product has been modified in any way.
    Your receipt or proof-of-purchase is from a non-authorized dealer or internet auction site including eBay, uBid, or other non-authorized resellers.
    You are not the original purchaser of the radar detector from an authorized dealer or did not receive it as a gift from the original purchaser of the radar detector from an authorized dealer.
    Unauthorized resellers appear and disappear, and may change names often, but purchasing a Beltronics product from any of the unauthorized resellers listed below will subject you to unauthorized reseller risks.
