Was waiting for this after I just missed the last offer. Finally got a second one for my DD.

They had the same deal 2 weeks ago I believe.

I drive like an masshole when I have a radar-detector in my car. Hence why I don't ride with one anymore.

Be careful of sites like woot, they mean well but have a seriously high number of complaints on the BBB. Site like this you don't know who is shipping it or if its being dropped shipped, they could be out of stock for months and make you wait after they non refundably charge you, more trouble then its worth to save a few dollars.

Are these RD's reliable? I've been looking into them lately and cannot seem to make up my mind. Anyone have experience with Valentine?

I love my 9500. In fact, a while back when Woot! was having this same offer, I picked up one for the wife's new Tahoe.

V1 is also good, but they have different features/benefits. Do some digging to figure out what works best for you, and pick it up!

For 300, this is a steal.

Just an FYI. Woot is owned by Amazon. Many things I have gotten from them are even packaged using Amazon tape and other packaging.

It'll come in fine. I got mine during the last promo. They should have a tracking number link.

I've got a Valentine. I love it. Very nice detector and the arrows showing the direction of the radar are sweet. Valentine has also developed an app that uses bluetooth to connect your detector to your phone. It allows for the blocking of false signals and bunch of other stuff. I bought mine directly from Valentine's website.

The Escorts are also extremely nice detectors. They've gotten ahead of the game by offering a nice app that helps with false signals too. It's probably a better system than Valentine's, but then you don't get the arrows.... so it's a tradeoff. I wish I had both.

You have to watch out buying from places like Woot or Ebay because a lot of these are refurbs. Also, if you happen to end up with a unit that's ever been reported stolen (Ebay), you won't be able to update any of the software. Valentine is constantly coming out with new versions.

Can someone shed some light on the whole radar detector thing? Some work, some don't, Different bands etc. I have 0 knowledge about this. Can it be tracked that you have one if your being read on radar, are they all jammers? Like I said I know nothing

Radar detectors don't jam anything. Some false more than others.

I have the Passport Max 2. It has built in GPS which shows red light cameras, locks out false alerts automatically, and has pretty good detection range.

There is ton of information online. Just do some research.

For those of you that want to learn about radar detectors, check out this guy on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/user/TravelCam1111


He has a bunch of videos about the pros and cons of a bunch of different radar detectors. Tons of great info in his videos. I spent hours researching and watching his videos and ended up going with a Valentine One which I LOVE!

Also, here is a radar detector forum you can check out: http://www.rdforum.org/forum.php

This, even without one I drive a bit more aggressive than normal people.

I pulled the trigger on one. For those of you that have one do you constantly have to hide it when parking or is there a better way?

Had a 9500ix for past 2.5 years. Saved me a ticket as recently as 2 weekends ago. Was getting ready to pass car on back country road...wide open, straight, no other cars around...soon as i hit the gas and started to pull to other lane it went off. Sure enough there was a row of trees and he was sitting there waiting. Luckily i pulled back in and was doing speed limit instead of doing 10-15 over right after passing
