I have a 8500 x50 and have debated switching to the v1 in the past, but in the end I stuck with the 8500. I have sent mine back 2x for service though, both for the service required message. 1st cost $40-50 but they do send a new mount and power cord. 2nd time it failed almost immediately so they sent me a new one. They do have great customer service.
