Hi, :)

Like many I checked radartest.com and was surprised to find following scores:
#1 Escort Passport 8500: score: 97 ($300)
#2 Bel 980: score: 94 ($295-330)
and ....#3 Valentine One: score: 77 ($400)

Questions:
Can we trust their ratings?
Which one is really the best. I mean best reliability/price? best bang/bucks.
:-?

reliability shouldn't really be a factor when choosing a detector. the thing's not gonna break unless you seriously abuse it

the V1's directional arrows make it a lot more useful than the others. but you really can't go wrong with any of the three. BEL makes some darn good units

no
website is biased and took $$$ for ratings


I can show you a direct comparisson between a 8500 and a V1
V1 is better than anything else.
