When I enter my 3 year old V1's serial number I get:srf said:Yeah EBay brings out the dumbest in everyone. I sold an older model (the taller one) V1 for like $50 less than a brand new model. And another sucky part of Valentine: almost $200 to upgrade an older model! You're far better of selling it & buying a new one.
"*INSTANT UPGRADE: As soon as we receive your old unit (in operable condition with no tampering of the serial number) we’ll exchange it for a brand-new, current-production V1. This is our way of assuring you’ll be without V1 protection for the shortest time."
New current-produciton unit for $189 with new cords, mounts, manual, new everything. Not bad. Plus they have fixed my current unit 6 months after the warranty, for free. And called me to explain what they fixed.
Has anyone used Bel's Trade-in Program or Warranty repair service? I may have to go Bel next time. Their LaserPro looks nice.
