- (July 04, 2007) My wife wanted to buy metal detector to find metals, coins and perhaps jewelry, if lucky. I asked my mother-in-law to order one for us because she had been an employee of a big retailer. Online price was cheap, so I thought it worth a try. It feels and does a good job.

Although we haven't found any gold yet, it was capable of finding metal objects. :) For the price we paid, it does meet out modest expecations we had from this product

- (02/02/13) Never deal with this company-they don't answer emails, dishonest, don,t even answer Amazon requests!, don't deserve to deal with the public. There are many options out there, avoid this one at all costs.
