|gocartone||Like everyone else said, this is the same price it has always been. Valentine is the only place to buy them from as not only are they cheaper, they are (correct me if I'm wrong) the only place the one-year warranty is valid.|

I've had my valentine 1 since 2007, it's still very strong. Works great. The suction cups are getting old especially since it's lived through many years of hot summer and cold winters.
I think the false alarms(like driving on highway with random X band) is a nice reminder for me to lose weight on my right foot... i drive usually 80mph in 65mph zones so when I hear the random alarms, i drop it to 70-75.

I have an escort x50. I live in North Carolina and I have recently noticed the state troopers running the k band instead of the usual ka band when I see them parked ahead of me running a trap. They usually just tap it so the k band shows on the detector a few seconds.
It seems some of the smaller town deputies also run a radar that only puts out the k band.
Is the k band enough for them to write a citation or do they then need to hit the ka band radar before they can legally write a ticket?

9500ix is just a 8500x50 with gps. You esentially have a low end radar detector with gps filtering capabilities. Give me a redline with gps and now we talking
xxxxM2 = M2 Horn (Solo 2)
.xxxS3 = M2 Horn (Solo 3)
xxxxM3 = M3 Horn (Bel Sti, Escort RedLine)
xxxM3R = M3 Horn (Bel Sti-R, Escort 9500ci)
xxxxM4 = M4 Horn (8500 X50, RX65, GX65, 9500ix)
xxxM4R = M4 Horn (Qi45, RX45)
xxxD05 = M4 Horn modified (Passport iQ)
xxx8500= S7 Horn (8500,original 8500 X50 & RX65)
xxxSR7 = S7 Horn (Escort SR7)
Edit: For women I would highly recommend a 9500ix since they tend to not speed as much and the GPS is a blessing for them. Women will ignore the valentine since it speaks to them too much. The 9500ix is great since it will only speak to you when it feels like a threat is there. The 9500ix does all the processing and thinking which I think the women prefer that. Valentine and redline is PURE RAW POWER. To much for some people to handle and they end up with 9500ix.

Oh, "I saw your tail light out."

Anyone in here gone all the way and gotten laser jammers as well?

People always tout the Valentine One like it's the ultimate detector, but the Escorts are right up there too. I don't really care if my detector gives me a 10 mile warning for a pig, as long as it gives me ample warning to slow down (which the Escort does).
Eventually I'd like to upgrade to a model the Redline, but I'm waiting for them to come out with a Blue Display edition. I'm not a fan of the RED.
Also... didn't Valentine's patent on the arrow direction system expire? Why hasn't Escort made a model with that functionality yet?
Instead of having those stupid status lights on the bottom of the Redline, they could have made it a little thicker and put in arrows.
