Opinions, please: Whistler Radar Detector (minimal Audi content)

Well, the time is approaching for my long drive to Virginia--right at 1000
miles.  As those of you who DRIVE your Audi's (as opposed to putting about
in them..) know it's quite easy to drastically exceed the posted speed limit
[not that I advocate this... :}  ].  My fastest time summer drive time has
been 13 hours 47 minutes (in my 4000s), including 2 20 minute stops, but I'd
like to get there a bit quicker because the daylight hours are limited this
time of year.  I've been putting off buying a good radar detector because
I'm not sure I'll be in the States in another few months, but I have come
across a decent deal (possibly).  Venture (like Wal-Mart, etc) has an ad for a:

Whistler Model 1430 Superwideband Radar/Laser detector.  360 degrees
detection, Regular $129.00, Sale $64.99.

Is this thing worth the money?  Anyone had experiences with Whistler in
general or this model specifically?  Any input would be appreciated.  Thanks
in advance.
