Surprised at how good it actually is. I know some have said it is flimsy, but the plastic seems strong enough, and I have not heard of any breaking.
Depth is good, with a solid signal at 9 inches for a medium weight man's gold ring.
ID seems to be less accurate beyond 7 or 8 inches for smaller targets.
The pinpoint is first class - When you press the pinpoint button it stays in that mode until you press it again. Great feature.
It has fully automatic ground balance tracking, not fixed, so it's not too bad on wet sand.
Oh, and did I say it's sooooo portable, and ready to use in about 10 seconds.
At £180 including extras delivered (from a big on line seller) it was too good to miss.
Will keep you up to date on my outings with this machine.

Totally my thoughts, so many wanted to jump on-board stating how weak / flimsy it appeared but if its actually up to the job then there is no problemSurprised at how good it actually is. I know some have said it is flimsy, but the plastic seems strong enough, and I have not heard of any breaking.
I have not read of a single breakage myself, yes there is bound to be the odd few I would imagine as there is with any brand of machine but generally the build quality seems to be ok
