Man I just went through the same thing.......
I purchased both the V1 & 9500ix. Keep in mind I live in a very populated area and there are banks and/or stores with auto doors on every corner and BOTH go off all the time and Dont Shut Up. I like that in the 9500ix it learns the frequcny and the GPS Cordinates of them and then soon ignores it. Hopefully in the near future the 9500ix will be fairly quite with false alarms in the areas i drive most. On the Other hand the V1 is alot more sensitive and will detect the Bands from a farther distance BUT does seems to make even more noice in my area.
I personally am choosing the 9500ix But both are good. it depends on where you live and the roads you drive on. The V1 on the Highway was nice barely any falses and picked up the cops nice and quick.
If you purchase them Direct youll have a 30day to return for a full refund.
