Exclamation Links - this should settle the debate....

.
Regarding reviews, the 1st review read isn't the definitive word. Read pro's, and come in on the topic at some different angles.

This is interesting:

Scroll down to May 27 and please read Radar Roy's summary of the
Escort Passport 9500ci. In my mind, it ends all the debate.

If the links don't work,
Apologies, I'll learn how to insert an html link very soon.

Thanks,

I know that all three of my Escorts alert sooner (usually 1/4 mile sooner) than a V-1. Proved it many times over with three different V-1's.

Might be true, my Valentine usually goes of long before I can see the LEO
which is all I need since the Valentine lets me know which direction he's coming from,
until the "competition" can do that they're inferior (in my not so humble opinion)

Thumbs up V1 vs. Passport 9500ci

It's probably not a reasonable comparison because the 9500ci is newer technolgy
and has additional features.

Although slowing , new generation technology or refinements of existing technology is a natural evolution of electronic progress.

For the price and performance, the V1 or 8500 x50 are darn good products.

At $ 1,599.00 the 9500ci is a huge leap and can't or shouldn't be included in
head 2 head comparisons with devices costing 1/3 the price.

At this time, it appears the V1 or 8500 is enough technology.

However, according to Radar Roy, ( certainly a highly respected and qualified evaluator) the 9500ci appears to be the newest standard for comparison -
of course until the next newest, latest, greatest device in introduced.

Re: Links - this should settle the debate....

I own both... x50 and V1.... I love them both... I agree that the escort typically tells you more quickly, but the V1 tells you more information at a glance which is more valuable in most cases.

I think the V1 comes in most handy when you have passed a LEO and it lets you know that they are moving away from you to the rear.... but wait... there is another still ahead getting closer...

Sometimes you can get so fixated on the fact that you are right that you lose sight of the reality that it doesn't matter.

Oh... and Roy is a little biased though if you know that going in... he has some early insights at times.
