Here is my breakdown on radar detectors. I have used them all, installed them all. They are all top of the line units which will serve their purpose, but just like comparing a bad detector versus a good detector, you can do the same with a good detector vs. a good detector. I probably install the Escort SR7 (laser detector + ZR3 laser shifters) the most, and I have found it to be the most reliable.

Escort SR7: With a stealth install, this is a very good detector. Not only is it a detector, but it is also a laser shifter if do get hit by a cop, which scrambles the signal going back.

V1: Falses ALOT. Sure you aren't going to get a ticket when you are always hitting the brakes because it is going off. The arrows are very nice to have though. The distance it alerts from is impressive, usually a couple miles ahead. Not quite immune to a radar detector detector used by cops.

K40: Nice unit, but falses more than the escort SR7

Escort Passport 8500: Does not false nearly as much as the V1, the distance is very similar of alert, but you don't have the arrows. A minor inconvience.
