The Valentine One V1 Radar detector is one of the highest performing radar detectors on the market. One reason for this is multiple radar antennas! The only other detector with two radar antennas is the Bel STi Driver, but in the STi both antennas face forward. In the Valentine One, there is one forward antenna and one rear-facing antenna. Using this combination of antennas, it effectively tells you the band and strength of the radar signal, along with the number of "bogeys," or radar units being detected. It will also tell you what direction the signal is coming from, and provide the best rear detection out of every other windshield-mounted detector on the market. Even when this sounds too good to be true, there's more. The Valentine One has excellent laser reception, consistently appearing at the top of tests in this category. In addition to the super high-performance of Valentine's detector, this model will never become obsolete. The very first Valentine detectors from 1992 look identical to the ones today, and can be sent in to Valentine to be updated with the latest hardware and software (charges may apply). If you decide on a Valentine One, you'll be in good hands with the same detector for the rest of your life.

I'm not gonna pretend I'm some expert in radars. I'm not. However, I am an expert in always speeding and getting caught. I bought this for my roadtrip from Long Island, NY to Toronto, Canada. I was travelling between 70-100 mph the majority of the way. This radar picked up 4 cop cars from literally a mile away shooting their radar gun in our direction. Two of which were hiding in near undetectable areas in the bushes which any normal person would not see till it was too late. It' saved my from 4 tickets alone. This doesn't even include how many times it picked up cops riding the opposite direction on the highway with their radars. We would all get excited when the radar went off and try and spot the cop and see if we could do it with our naked eyes from the initial alert. It wasn't possible till close range! THERE IS NONE BETTER!
Absolutely, and I give the device itself 5/5 stars. But more on that 1/5 star rating further down in my review.
As for the device itself. This is an amazing Radar IF, and that's a big IF.. you don't mind false positive K-bands. If you have a V1 and ever driven behind any new Audi, you'll know what I mean. But when you couple the Radar with the V1 Connection add-on, and use the App, you unlock the true potential of it. With realtime GPS tracking, bogey map, speed information, band power information, and the ability to hook into the bogey database for your area/trip and also store your own false positives so they don't annoy you in that frequent drive to work.
From what I've personally experienced, I believe the V1 is the most sensitive of all radars in the market (previous 9500ix owner), and I believe it is also the only Radar that provides you frontal and posterior detection, with arrows indicating threat direction. If you are a country driver, long open roads, looks of open space and tree lines where they hide behind and trigger. This is the must-have for you. Those driving in crowded cities, with lots of speed cams and traps, you are advised to either get the V1 and V1 Connection (Requires setting up) or opt for an All-Inclusive device such as the Passport 9500ix as it comes with GPS and flash memory for storing bogey coordinates. This devices takes some work and setting up, but once it's properly configured, it is your best friend.
--- CLARIFICATION -------
Why 1-star? Because there's deliberate veiling of information happening here and unfortunately there's no way to tell who's responsible. The Valentine1 company agent stated during a phone I had with V1 that the company has no affiliation whatsoever with the seller of this item here on Amazon. And that the person merely used the same name to sell the product for personal gain. Also, it's worth noting that the device is being sold for quite less at the official Valentine1 store. If you are ok with paying MORE for LESS, then go right ahead. But you will not be entitled to any original warranty rights (Free repairs/upgrade from V1). You will have to pay for any fix or upgrade you do to your device.
Is that ok for Valentine1 to do that to their customers? No, I don't think so. Can I do anything about it? Absolutely not. I wish, but I don't work for these guys. I'm just a shopper trying to let others be aware of the facts. No more, no less. So I don't really understand why I am receiving all this negativity. I don't work for the company. Nor do I have anything against Amazon. This is a unique case and I thought people would appreciate knowing, as opposed to downranking my review.
Anyway, you've been informed. Good day to you all.
--- ORIGINAL POST -------
"Valentine1 does not authorize warranty transfers." A statement that is very vague and only found inside the manual after you've already opened the box.
What customers need to know, is that Valentine1 will only honor the warranty of the very first purchaser. In that case, it is whichever eBusiness selling on Amazon, whoever that may be. So if you receive a defective product, or say your product BECOMES defective later down the road, you will have to take it with Company X or Company Y and hope they will replace your unit for you. Valentine1 will only honor the warranty if you are the sole first and final buyer. By that, I mean you MUST buy the unit DIRECTLY from THEIR store. Very odd practice, but it's a fact. I am having to return my product, brand new in the box, after I just got off the phone with the V1 agent.
While this is not a fault of the product or V1, it is misleading and missing important information from the reseller here at Amazon that needs to be addressed.
You've been warned, save yourself the headache and purchase one directly from their store.
