+1 for the Valentine, but the escort is great too. I also wired mine into the sunroof as I have the sedan.

He got sued for screwing up a radar detector test and he lost and had to pay them back for the money they wasted. The funny thing is that the GOL team found the radar gun by using the arrows on the Valentine One which is the radar detector that Craig Peterson was trying to bash in the first place.

See here:

This is why Craig Peterson tried to screw up their truly independent test.

The Escort 8500 X50 isn't even in the same ballpark as the Valentine One.
