Default What radar detector do you use?

Ok so right now I have the all new Passport Escort MAX. Im in a delima of if I want to keep it or not. I Have had a few other escort products including 8500, 8500 x50, IQ, and the 9500ix. Honestly the 8500 x50 impressed me the most. I really feel like the MAX isn't as strong as they make it out to be esspecaly for $600.

I bought it because I wanted the increase range and the GPS lock ability along with the very nice display. Now Im thinking about sending it back. After having it for a few days I started thinking it wasn't all it was cracked up to be and they morning is what really threw me over when KA reading didn't pop up until .4 miles of the cop being ahead. I wasn't speeding so no big deal but still thats weak. He was just sitting in the middle of the road with the radar constantly on. I even made a another pass to make sure.

So my question is asking what you guys have and why you like it? Have you had others in the past that you replaced with your current one?

Im thinking of either swapping out for the Redline which lots of people like because of range "but escort claims the MAX is better" or getting the V1 which has been around forever. "really like the arrow idea of the V1"

Any and all help will be great. Thanks
