I just have a cheapo, but it does the job.
My dad has been using radar detectors since I was born (Chicago suburbs) and he has never gotten in trouble with cops for it. He has a Passport model, I'm not sure which, but I know that it has never let him down.
When I'm driving to paintball (70 mile drive each direction) and don't have it with me I usually find someone on the highway with a V1/Passport and just follow them, always works fine. Plus they get nailed by the state troopers because they're in front. Anyone going over 80 is going fast enough for me to follow because I don't get that annoyed feeling of driving slower than I can on the highway from them.
I don't know much about the different models and my only experience is with a Passport model so I'm not really in a place to say which is better, but what I can honestly say is that I drive through a whole lot of speedtraps monitored by police with the latest and greatest, and have never been pulled over with the Passport.
