    Well, I ended up buying a Bel 906. Did well on Radartest.com and was on sale for $79.99


    I don't speed enough to justify a V1 or another $300 detector.

    I used to use cheap detectors. But I got so many tickets that I decided I could justify a V1. It's already paid for itself a couple of times over.

    i have the escort 8500.......over 100$ cheaper than v1 and so far extremely worthy........much debate over v1/escort, but i went with this cause times are tight and overall seems to be a great unit for the money......also links to the ZR3 shifter which in a few months i'll have the bank for.....complete protection.....i like it.

    I have the 8500 also - I know that it has more than paid for itself and is well worth the money.

    The best radar detector for under $200 is the one you don't buy until you save another $200 and buy a V1.

    Only one ticket in the past 8 years. I just need that extra security for when I am running a little late and therefore am a little lead footed. Bel makes good stuff and so far the 906 hasn't failed to alert me to cops who were radaring in plenty of time to slow down.

    Do a side by side comparo. If you don't like the V1, send it back. Trust me. It's the best investment (besides your investment in a friendship with a cop) you'll ever make if you speed.
