I agreeTXRLU said:I had a Valentine One a few years back, and I found the arrows to be quite useful. The way the Arrows work is if you get a radar signal, it tells you in what direction the signal is coming from, perfect especially against Instant-On radar. I have had many encounters where I'd get a sound and the "back" arrow would flash for atleast a mile. Sure enough it was a motorcycle cop hauling ass behind me. If I had disregarded the long beeping (as I probably would have with any other detector thinking it was just a false alarm) I probably would've began to speed up and not been aware that there was a motorcycle cop behind me. The one problem with the Valentine One is that it is rather pricey. But if you want the top of the line I would look into this particular unit. www.valentineone.com

Don't get me wrong the Escort was a good r/d I would have bought another one if I had the $....
The Vector is a very good R/D... I'm sure you will be pleased with the level of protection. BTW, what did you pay for it, and where did you get it?BeRad said:Thanks for all the input, after doing some research with like radarbusters and some other sites I bought a Bell Labs Vector 955, it's very programmable and upgradeable, even picks up the KU band which is the european band that might be comin to the US soon, it alerted this a.m. to a tropper 2 miles down the highway sittin behind a bridge support.

Okay, I'll not get pissy anymore... but humor me, can you provide links to any independent reviews that show the Whistler "works as good or better" than the Escort (Passport 8500 X50, actually).
