Default Radar Detectors, Need To Know

Hey guys, I am thinking of getting a radar detector, but I was wondering what I need to know about them before buying one.

What kind of features should I be looking for, or specs? From what I have read online thus far, the Valentine V1, and the Escort Redline/Passport detectors are supposably the best ones on the market. But what exactly makes them better than each other/other different models.

Are there particular bands I should be wanting my radar detector to have that are most used by law enforcement?

I've noticed that one the companies websites, they say something like "Its twin-antennae design allows it to maximize performance by band, giving you the longest warning possible", but doesn't tell you the range of the detector. Does anyone know the average range of these detectors? What's the average range of a police radar gun?

If anyone can answer any of these questions or provide more information regarding radar detectors, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

Found a great DIY install by BassMech:
