So I just order a new WRX and now I'm starting to buy some extra for my new baby. One of the first things I want to buy is a radar detector (don't worry I won't be an idiot and go 100 just because I have radar detector) (and yes I have used the search bar was hoping to get some advice from people in the NJ area). I've basically narrowed it down to two different ones: (1) Escort 8500 X50 and (2) Valentine One. Price isn't of concern since the one is ~$340 and the other is ~$400, sixty bucks isn't of concern I just want the best. A little background, I am currently living in NJ where they mainly use X-Band so my first question is: Is one better for X-Band than the other? I do not plan to be in NJ for more than a couple of years so an overal opinion of the two is appreciated. Finally I know cops have been getting better at beating these detectors so if anyone has first hand experience of one of these starting to perform worse over the past few year that would be great. Any other useful info, such as one is really loud, can't hurt.
