Default Escort 8500

It's programmable/upgradable by dial in.

The V1 is great but has not been updated.

RadarTest rates the Escort 8500 the best.

Valentine 1, is #1.
Car and Drivers test of all the major radar detectors, showed Valentine's graph comparison off the chart compared to all others. I don't now what technology they have, but it is the *#@%...

I agree the V1 is the only way to go, but be careful if you intend on buying it on eBay. You need to make sure that you are not getting an older model V1 that is in need of an upgrade.

Just step up and buy a new V-1 direct. That way you do not have to worry about buying one that may not have the latest upgrades. You may also want to add the remote display. Works great in my cars.

Definately Valentine - I've had one since they first came out. As a couple people stated above - Buy a new one since it will have all the latest upgrades (most e-bay units are outdated). Valentine is constantly upgrading and you will not be able to live without the arrows and number counter.
