indeed the mag is prolly biased, but I don't see how your opinion is any less biased...u claimed its better, but where is the tangible proof...everyone has an opinion y should yours have anymore weight than the next person...

here's a mag that ran a series of tests, and shows how each one scored not based on opinion but on 'scientific evidence', maybe they were biased tests etc etc...but its more credible than 1 person's opinion...
Do what ever the hell you want.

I am however telling you that when we have been out driving in the wild, that the Escort has ALWAYS picked up signals ahead the V1's - and that the advantage of the "arrows" is nil when compared to the display showing a complete line for ach bogey detected AND frequency incationf of each AND a tone differnece.

So again - do what ever the fuck you want - the topic opener ASKED for opinions.

And I am guessing the thread starter IS interested the opinions of people who have owned and used BOTH - even if you are not.

Again - the thread starter ASKED for opinions.

Although LASER is line of sight, so there are more than likely other indicators a LASER is being used.. the operator will be likely using the crest of a hill, bridge etc. and more than likely in a high traffic area that you shouldn't be speeding in anyway.
