K40 RADAR DETECTORS vs. ESCORT RADAR DETECTORS vs. V1

I have reviewed tons of information and watched a ton of videos on encounters using both the K40 RL360, RL100 radar detectors, Escort 9500ci, Redline and 9500ix and the V1. I understand that ALL radar encounters are different and depending on the envoirment and surroundings range could be different. Seeing that most of us rate our radars based upon our REAL WORLD driving experiences, I have decided to compare a few different encounters that were as close as possible driving terrain. Very interesting to see who displayed better range and more warning on same band encounters, take a look !

Escort 9500ci / Redline vs. Ka band Leo encounter:
This video was .66 secs long and was on a basic straight away interstate with the Leo on left side of road. Redline detected at .28 sec into video and the 9500ci alerted at .36 secs into video they passed the Leo 60 secs into the video giving at most .32 secs of warning time to the driver take a look.






K40 RL360 vs. Ka Band Leo Encounter:
This video was .123 secs long also on a straight away highway however it was down a hill with the Leo on left side on the road.
The K40 RL360 detected .19 secs into video and they passed the Leo .78 secs into video giving the driver .59 secs of warning time. Take a look.





Escort Redline vs. Ka Band Leo Encounter
This video was .52 secs long and was on a basic straight away highway with the Leo on left side of road. The Redline alerted .14 secs into video they passed the Leo .46 secs into the video giving at most .32 secs of warning time to the driver take a look





K40 RL100 vs. Ka Band Leo Encounter:
This video was .62 secs long also on a straight away highway with the Leo on left side on the road. The K40 RL100 detected .62 secs into video and they passed the Leo .80 secs into video giving the driver .62 secs of warning time. Take a look.





Escort 9500ix vs. Ka Band Leo Encounter
This video was .104 secs long and was on a basic straight away highway with the Leo on left side of road. The 9500ix alerted .32 secs into video they passed the Leo .116 secs into the video giving at most .44 secs of warning time to the driver take a look.





K40 RL100 vs. Ka Band Leo Encounter:
This video was .71 secs long also on a straight away highway down a hill with the Leo on left side on the road. The K40 RL100 detected immediately into video and they passed the Leo .66 secs into video giving the driver .66 secs of warning time. Take a look.





This video was .63 secs long also on a straight away highway with the Leo off to the left side of the highway. Both the Redline and 9500ci detected Ka band .11 secs into this video and they passed the LEO .47 secs into the video giving the driver .36 sces of warning time. Take a look





This video was .142 secs long also on a straight highway however traveling down a hill with the LEO on the righ sid eof the highway. The K40 RL360 detected Ka Band .21 secs into this videos and they passed the LEO .80 secs into the video giving the driver .59 secs of warning time, take a look !





V1 vs K40 RL100 vs. Redline

check out these videos the V1 on gave 21 second warning on a police Ka Band alert from the time it detected to whe they passed and the K40 RL100 gave 67 seconds on it's Ka Band encounter from the time it detected to when they passed the police. The Escort Redline detected Ka Band .20 secs into video and they passed LEO .47 secs into video giving .27 secs of warning.

Again it has been acknowledged that all terrain is different but the basis is that if a radar is good then it should result in the same performance regardless and in these close comparisons the K40 has shown to give the most advanced warning to police radar.
