I was very pleased with its performance
on July 12, 2016
Although priced more in the low-end and probably considered mostly a "toy", this detector actually works very well. I have not had a chance to use the Android phone app with this yet, so I can't review how well that works. The detector itself appears to be quite sensitive and on my first trip out with only this machine I was able to recover 3 silver dimes and 5 wheat pennies as well as a bunch of older memorial pennies. I was very pleased with its performance. It folds up small enough to fit in a larger carry-on bag, or can easily be packed in checked luggage. Although the plastic digging tool is tough, it won't hold up to anything that is very hard. A metal tool would work much better. I would also recommend bringing a pin pointer with you as well.
I've been using detectors for over 25 years and find it amazing that you can get something this good for such a reasonable price. I would recommend this to anyone who wants a good machine at a very reasonable price. Great for a beginner and works well for a seasoned veteran that needs something more portable than the regular detectors.
