: I agree totally. Don't waste your money on anything else but a Valentine. With or without laser its your choice. I don't think the laser is worth it, because by the time you get the warning you are already caught, but the radar is the best there is, bar none.: I have a Valentine 1 and I don't think that there is anything better on the market in the detection field. Has saved my bacon many times. Nothing is going to give you much help against instant on radar unless someone ahead of you gets zapped first.

: : I am personally very skeptical about the jammers that are advertised. I read an article a while back that tested several and none were effective. As I recall, one unit even made it EASIER for your speed to be read.

: : Check out the Valentine 1 web site at I have put the link below which should just let you surf right there.

: : : I just got my first speeding ticket in my '97 540i 6-speed and I shouldn't have been caught! The cop was headed East bound and I was going West on the interstate. I know that there are radar detectors and laser jammers on the market but are they really worth the cost? In your opinion, what are the best products and are any foolproof? Also, I've seen some companies offer a money-back guarantee on their products if you get a ticket in the first year. Any thought on these guarantees?
