Interpret these as you'd like ... three of the four videos were less than one mile away from the Ka source, some were off-axis, and there were two RDs running. I'll work on getting better in-town sources tomorrow, but for now, I'm quite impressed with the Max's performance. Hopefully these are helpful for now.
Did u have TRS on or off?

Thank you Anber for these videos. This is exactly what I was wanting when I made this thread. Great descriptive, but to the point idea/comment(ary) of what is going on. Great showcase to two RDs side by side. Some people will most likely tell you "to not run two RDs side by side as there will be interference" but from your videos and many others on the web, while this may be true the (negative) effect often appears negligible. I hope to test the Redline and the Max (when I finally get it) side by side like you so wonderfully did. I also have my older X50 which I may do a side by side comparison. Everyone, feel free to do your own side by side comparisons and post the video here. We all look forward to it!

I had default bands enabled, so I believe it was on. If you'd like, I can try to do the same tests today with TSR off. We don't have any traffic flow systems around here, so it might be good for me to turn it off anyway.

I don't believe that you need/should return the Max. I believe that the Redline is a little better at radar detection than the Max but so what. As far as the Laser goes,it appears to me that the laser source is a laser speed camera. Yes? If I saw correctly in your videos,the Max doesn't alert to laser until it has counted down to the camera location then it alerts to the laser signal. I am wondering if the speed camera alerts are turned off,will the Max alert to laser sooner as does the Redline. I'd like to ask you to test again with speed traps off but you have already graciously retested. That is up to you if you want. You took the time out of your day and used gas etc for which I greatly appreciate. Overall,it would be best if you didn't use them together due to the possibility of interference.

Thank you Mason! The Max alerted sooner to the Laser speed trap location with speed traps off.

I look forward to it Pickle. And thank you Mason for your videos as well. Hopefully these videos will help others in their decision to buy or not. Plus, they are just fun to watch.

The V1 was not segged and also, those two units were too close together.

If you read Nine_c1's sticky "The MAX experience" you will see by his chart that by running two RD's together the degredation of BOTH RD's is incredible and your data will be totally unreliable. Nine told me that several years ago and he is 100% correct. I think I still remember his post at the time. DON'T DO THAT.
Nine is one of the, if not the best and if he says Don't do it, you guys might want to listen up.

If anyone has some free time try taking a video of running your RDs together and then individually to see the range difference (if any).
