↑ Although I've never had the misfortune of clashing with VR, I can believe that a percentage of reports are true.

It probably wouldn't hurt them to have a public relations oriented person in that situation.
One time I called in after I bought my X50, told the guy on the phone the V1 couldn’t keep up. He said “that’s not possible” in a defensive tone. Sent it in, per his request. When I got it back, it laid the smack down on that x50. Almost kept up with the Redline I bought later. I’ve only ever sent it in once since, that was for the K filter. Still a solid detector.

Now I am hoping that same person gets my v1 next time it goes in, I realize now it could have been the man himself. He can be rough around the edges if he wants. They replaced all the plastic, button/knob, shipped it back and didn’t charge me a dime. Was at least 6 months passed warranty and original purchase date. VR seemed to genuinely care about the product they are shipping out even if the customer is just some rude country boy with a lead foot.

So that's the secret to getting a V1 with better range? :p I'm getting ready to make that call....

HAHA... whoever I talked to was very defensive... eventually I just said "look man I didn't take the time to call you because I am making things up, I like the Valentine better anyway. I just want it to work better than my $250 detector, it was almost half the price of this thing..." (the x50 Black was only $250 when it released, so I snatched one up for my company car at since I spent so much time in that thing. )

But it did work out in the end... just I would maybe be a little more diplomatic in my approach now. Guess I have less energy to get upset these days.

Who wouldn't be defensive when someone calls to tell them their product is inferior? Grow up already. Adults just don't do that.

I am trying to decide if you are being serious or sarcastic. :shifty:

And "grow up"? ... Nope! Only aging because I have to, but growing up is definitely still up to me.

More drama than a soap opera.

Random thought:
In the current climate, it would be terrible to be a known Valentine employee in this forum.

I was just joking around, I hope it wasn't taken wrong. If poop was being flung my way, it missed...

After the way MV was treated in the old forum, I don't think you have to worry about that ever happening again!

Me too. Its been a long time since he was around on the forums.

I'm closing this thread for the soon to be "Looking at August for V1's now" or "Just bought the new V1!" thread.
