Default Hard lesson learned!

Thought it would be a great idea to share my thoughts on the new Blinder M-25 and M-45 models. Well I let my ego get the best of me and it all ended up in a pissing match over at the (radardetector.net forum) I realize now that "speedtraphunter.net" is the forum I belong on. I'm sure the laser interceptor and LPP laser park jammers are great. But I learned if you only focus your attention on one main laser jammer you get bashed for it. I tend to look at how a product performs, versus who has a favorite model. I also learned that the only true independent testers of these products are not websites who claim to test them, and tell you they are the best in test... Its you and I as testers that are the true people that know for sure if it actually works. Sometimes we just have to keep our opinions to ourselves. Atleast that is what I have learned today.

Whenever someone sticks their head above the crowd, someone will always throw a tomato. Sounds like they're closed minded. If they don't agree with you they should at least respect your opinion. If not, they lose input from someone with experience on alternate views. Too bad for them.
I'd be interested in how you like your system. I'm about to order a V-1. I would like some form of LJ. Interceptor looks great but what of service down the road? LPP looks great also. What's durability like? Should these things last for years and years? Are they upgradeable or if lasers change must they be replaced? Is the M-20 just as good/better than the M-25? I live in AZ. Does years of exposure to the heat shorten the life of this stuff? Any idea on how much laser is used in town as opposed to the freeways. I live near Phoenix.I am open to all opinions as I am the rookie here.

Default Good Questions???

Well I really love my setup. I own a 2001 V1 which has been upgraded to the newest V1 software. My M-25 has saved me I don't know how many times!! and the veil stealth coating is great too. As for the others such as LPP or laser interceptor, I can't say. I do know that Blinder has the best customer service over them all. If you ever need a hard question answered, Leon and Bonnie will help you. I currently own a Pro laser II gun and have tested my M-25 and my friends M-20. Both Jam very well at all distances.. The weather has never bothered any of my toys. I will say this, laser is becoming the choice of most county cops in my area. I hope that helped a little.

Yes, it did. Thanks. I just ordered the V-1. One piece of the puzzle will be in place.

Smile Testing

Let me know when you get your blinder. After you go through a couple of speed traps you'll understand why I love mine so much.
