Hello all. I did a lot of research on this MD. And I found that for the money this was a great machine for the money. I have only used it in the yard so far to get use to it and figure out how to use everything it comes with. Very lite and pretty easy to use. A little noisey but all you have to do is change some of the features on it and its all good.
I've used a friend's detector--same one as this--and decided to get it for myself. As soon as our snow melts (some time in May) I'll have this baby velcroed to my arm and off I go! This is the Cadillac of detectors. Buy this model!!!!
