if you have the money to spend on them.. the top rated out there right now are the Beltronics RX65 and the Escort 8500. But thats IF you have the money to spend because they are not cheap..

None of those can touch a Valentine 1. Has beat all the radar makers (even escort) every year since it came out in like 94. Shows which direction, type, how many, and how strong the signal for radar.

I have owned both and the Valentine 1 is far better. You keep reading bias reviews and I will keep trying them out myself. "The Valentine One® has dominated every high-end detector test we've conducted since its introduction in 1992, said Car and Driver. That's ten years of top-rated performance." What reviews are you talking about?

That is your opinion. You state it as though it is a fact. Just because Valentine is made by an individual who can't afford to pay off magazines and test groups like Escort to say his detectors are the best, doesn't mean they are not better. You are just going by what you have read in some magazine which are almost always bias. I will ask you again... Have you actually TRIED a Valentine 1 out?

Ok, since your "buddy" used to get "lots" of them Im sorry I doubted you, I don't know what I was thinking. Still have not heard what kind of detector YOU have.

ehh...not to be rude...but thats because theyr using laser guns instead of radar

radar guns take about a minute to load and shoot, so they never turn it off, and thats the reason why with a good radar detector you can "catch" the signal betweent .75 to 1.5 miles away

laser guns take about 2-3 seconds to load and shoot, reason why theyr always turned off and you see them in the highways aiming like snipers, they have to shoot at the license plate since is a flat metal surface it gives the best acuracy when trying to nail you, so they have it off, see you coming, turn it on while aiming and shoot...and your scrwed...reason why the detector lights up when its too late

detectors are exactly that, they dectec a signal when is out there for it to catch it, but if the guns are off theres nothing to catch

i wouldnt say the valentine 1 is the best....however is one of the best out there, for me there are 3 big products...valentine 1, escort, and K-40...ive used em all and installed em all...and as a PERSONAL preference id go with k-40 but thats just me

who wants the best protection should also get a Laser Defiuser or Laser Jammer, which works by scrambiling the signal that the cop gets and saving your ass...and they work along with radar detectors too.
