YES, that's been most unfortunate, to say the least.

I actually owned a K40 in my personal vehicle and drove with it for a very good number of years and while its performance wasn't say at the level of the ultra-premiums, I never actually got a speeding ticket with it. Unfortunately the front radar receiver ultimately failed due to the age and despite trying to get a working replacement from K40, the model had been long since out of production and so I was forced to replace the entire unit. I was not upset with K40, as I understand a manufacturer may not be able to support an out-of-production unit indefinitely, not even automakers do (I think its seven years after the model year, actually).

At any rate, without getting into or discussing history (from whatever perspectives), I truly believe that this review may turn out to be Craig Peterson's crowning achievement (up to this point) and will ultimately serve our industry well (especially the consumers).

I know there has been a lot of "bad" Kharma surrounding RadarTest over the years (especially, last year), and I see he will continue to have "haters," but, at least from my perspective and despite whatever "history," Craig Peterson is basically a stand-up guy, willing to put his "carrier" at potential risk from whatever elements (as he has in the past).

It takes guts and integrity to report things as you find them, and I believe that he is beginning (at least for me) to earn back, respect.

I appreciate that he merely reported the facts and kept his writer's wit in check on this one...It's too significant of a review, even more so than his collective consumer advisories about a certain "passive" radar "scrambler" manufacturer.

Like the GoL, his results will speak for themselves!

Well done, Craig!

PS: You know I have been a supporter of Craig, despite all of the negativity (and even though I haven't agreed with some of his opinions/conclusions), but I believe his book(s) on the subject of "safe speeding" are definitive pieces of fine reading.

Please give him a chance and support his efforts by getting his latest book.

There really is a wealth of information worth knowing about that is not generally known (from a driver's perspective). Hey if you don't like it (which I really doubt) you can always put it on Amazon.

PPS: Holy Smokes! I just realized this has been an incredible week, if truth telling is important to you. To wit: GoL's latest laser jammer test, Scott's sincere public apology to the GoL, the 'Goon's' being exposed as the shills they are, and CP's review of the awesome 9500ci and the subsequent vindication to the authenticity of GoL's original review...

Incredible week! This industry has long been in the need of "healing" and between all of these independent dynamics, I truly believe we're on the right trajectory!

Is'nt Craig Peterson the same guy that got sued by Radar Roy for hiding a radar and or laser gun while he was doing testing? I believe those sites to be biased to what they sell, I never recommend researching radar from websites that sell specific radars

lol yeah Craig Peterson hid the radar unit to screw with Radar Roys tests. They are all scammers, just like the K40, it is rubbish and no one should ever buy one..why you think they sued Roy if you mention their name...they know its crap and dont want anyone to spread the word...

Typical!
