I bought this product two weeks ago as my first RD. I've seen the Valentine One in action personally, as well as Whistlers, to the low-end Cobras. In short, this product blew them all away.

While the V1's reactivity and range is excellent, what sets the Magnum away from it is range, stealth, and a gross reduction of false alarms.

Another thing I liked was audio upramp matching the threat's range. While it does not have arrows like the V1, it does give you a good, approximate distance, which is equally, if not more important.

The ability to program your RD is an excellent feature as well. I keep my on threat display, to see just how many signals there are out there.

I use this both in the city for my commutes to work, and on the Highway, where I take my pleasure drives to relax.

Probably my favorite moment with the Magnum so far is right after I installed it (direct wire, of course), I wanted to take my car out and see what this baby could do. It was on Easter Sunday. I was approching a steep, tall hill, I recieved a Ka threat. Looking behind me, I saw no LEO's heading my way, so I figured the threat was right over the hill.

...There was no threat when I drove down the hill, and my threat indicator was showing weak Ka.

TWO MILES LATER, finally, the Magnum reached maximum alert right next to the source. It was a Dodge Charger Police Car that had been left running near a convienence store with its Stalker RADAR on, and it was tucked behind a building, off-axis, no less.

I couldn't believe it.

If I had any gripes about this RD so far it would be:

The rear antenna is adequate, but not as senstive as I'd like. I have come across I/O RADAR with this detector, and while the front performed as best as expected, there was a bit of lag when I passed the source with the rear antenna. Could have been just a fluke, but with I/O or Q/T, any sort of detection is impressive.

All in all, if someone wants to buy a high-end Radar Detector, with a plethoria of featutes, long range, and stealth capability, the STi Magnum will do it all for you in a simple, compact package.

I gave in to the hype and purchased the STI Magnum at full price! Within a year after purchase, the digital voice alert function failed so I sent it back to the company under wty - they fixed it. Next thing to go bad was the mute button incorporated into the power plug. The next thing that's starting to go bad is the power on and off button on the unit itself. I would not recommend this brand of detector to anyone.

Comments about Beltronics STi Magnum Radar Detector:

PURCHASED NEARLY 2 YEARS AGO THE KA IS GREAT AND THE TOTAL SHIELD TECHNOLOGY REALLY WORKS I'VE TESTED IT ON SEVERAL OCCASIONS IN VIRGINIA THE ONLY DRAW BACK IS THAT AFTER THE WARRANTY ENDED THE LASER ALARM GOES OFF OFTEN WHEN THERE IS NO LASER AROUND IF I UNPLUG IT AND LET IT COOL DOWN IT USUALLY WORKS NORMAL FOR A WHILE I GUESS IT GOOD I CAN TURN OFF THE LASER DETECTOR BUT THAT LEAVES ME WITH NO LASER PROTECTION BY THE WAY THE WINDSHIELD MOUNT DOES NOT WORK IN THE WINTER

      Beltronics STI Magnum
      I have been very pleased with this radar detector. I was worried after I bought it because of some of the reviews I had seen online but in my experience this detector works as advertised by Bel and it was cheaper than it's sister the Escort Redline. I have the previous STI and this detector has given me quicker alerts esp on Ka and K band than the older model.

            i'm anxious to put this to work.....radar detectors are illegal in commercial vehicles (trucks) so the un-detectable feature is why i bought this one.....my old one was getting me too many tickets
