You can buy new X50 units on eBay at $240 all day long. It's a fantastic value at that price.
The arrows are great on the V1, you'll miss them once you've driven with them. From this perspective, the V1 is simply superior at its ability to provide MAX situational awareness.
Is the V1 worth $160 more? For some, it certainly is. That's a personal decision and is somewhat subjective.
I do know this: V1 clearly has an edge in laser detection and the tests show this. If you have to contend with laser during your daily drive, i'd opt for the V1 and get a Blinder hooked up.
