Yes another radar detector Q?

Does anybody have PNI Silver Bullet radar detector?
Does it work good? this one is unique since it can be powered by battery or 12volt. Which makes it very clean look. - http://www.pnicorp.com/productDetail?nodeId=cSB

i read a radar detector test and this one had the best rating on under 200$ range. Ofcourse the best one was the Escort x50 which is 300$.
here is the link for the testing..

i work at best buy. The escort 8500 x50 is the best out there, better range and size than the v1. The pni is alright. You should be able to find them under 100 bucks though. The bad thing is if you go cordless you have to attach this huge battery box to it. It does match the color of the stock celica radio leds though.

Where did my sig go? help me find it..........
