Lately the Escort have won as much! Especially if youconsider the price (~200 less?)

It depends on who advertises in the mag doing the test. Look on-line for a few independent tests, I did and went with the Escort.

PS. They're both made here in Cinci and we 'locals' get kinda a deal on them...

I got it here at Buy Reliant. It's really a microphone holder. I just use it for the radar detector. It works great. The model is MSA2.

Valentine 1 is the best. I have tried several over the years and the directional arrows are awesome. Range is great too! The only thing I wish it had was an auto mute feature after 3 clicks like the passport. Instead you manually have to press the mute button. Other than that it has saved me at least 25 times in several years.

You better check who's doing the reviewing. Real life tests with police vehicles show the the x50 far exceeded the valentine 1

Buy a Valentine if you want it to go off on every Safeway or Home Depot you pass (meaning constantly). If you want a quiet RD that has the best filtering then I recommend you go with Bel or Escort. I have the Beltronics RX-65. It rarely beeps unless there is a true threat. It's also ready for the Ku band that may be coming soon to a precinct near you. (Note: the Bel RX-65 and the Escort X50 have the same internal electronics so buy the one that looks the best or has the display you like.)

2005 Mustang GT with 300 ci 04 Cobra iron block, Kenne Bell 2.6l twin screw, P&P S3 Heads, SS valves, Comp S3 cams, Currie 9+ 9" rear end and DS, Hurst shifter, BMR K-member, A-arms, LCAs & UCA, JBA long tubes & mid-pipe, Accel COPs, Dual GT500 fuel pumps, much more...
