Passport Escort 8500 x50 vs Valentine One

I have both radars and am looking to sell one and can't decide which. Is there a clear choice as to which one is the better radar or is it up for debate?

Religion.....

Pick the one you like.

I like my V1 because I like the arrows and the new bluetooth dongle that lets my Android phone double as the display. YMMV.

There not radarz they're radarz detectorz.

The V1 in test after test has been shown to be far superior to the X50 in detection.

Valentine 1 is for sure the best one out there. 9500ix comes very close to one imo but having arrows really helps.

8500 is so outdated....

wow. I've had both and IMO the V1 was better? I had the 9500ix as well and it was the same for me for the v1 but i like the arrows...

8500x50 go for like 50-100 bucks on ebay.
