This is my first season with Garrett Ace 150, some 50 hours in total. I
like both the machine and the process of coinhunting. It seems to be very
similar to fishing, that I like very much. Ace 150 gives you an opportunity
to think the process over, so after some time of practice you can work out
your own strategy and tactics of search.
I hunt mostly on old roads and paths in the woods and in the fields and
have found a couple of dozens of old copper coins and one tiny silver coin,
that is over 300 years old. I set Jewelry or Coins mode to give the task
for the machine and then switch to All Metal to identify what I've found.
I like Garrett Ace 150 for being easy to use and a chance for thinking.

Two short trips, two beautiful coins!
March 23, 2009
My partner and I have just bought our first detector, the Garrett 150, we
went out on a 'trying it out' trip in a field in Shropshire UK, and within
about 10 minutes had detected our first find, a short cross quarter silver
penny about 1200 AD! this tiny thing was about 3 inches deep, but the
Garrett gave a clear and focussed signal. We were hooked, the next day out
to another field, after half an hour or so, the Garrett detected a strong
silver signal, this time about 6 inches deep, a King James 1st silver
sixpence in lovely condition, with the date crystal clear after 400 years
in the ground, 1604!
This machine has effectively paid for itself in two days re. coin value,
although our pleasure in touching history is the most exciting thing by
far! Dont hesitate, if our experience is anything to go by....
All the best

I just got a used Garrett Ace 150 and used it in area where we had just
done some construction and we were amazed with what we found (even little
staples). We found over 30 items (nails, screws, very small rust pieces).
I'm impressed with our training exercise and how great it worked.
Wicked Bang For The Buck!
September 14, 2008
I received my Ace 150 as a birthday gift this summer. I must admit it does
take a little to get used to, but once you have figured out all the
features and signal sounds you will be on your way to digging up a
bottomless pit of goodies! As for the pin pointing complaint I have no
problem with it. I do the "X" pattern over the signal and can come within
1-3 inches of the target. I find that some of the newer Canadian coins do
not fall into the coin range but actually into the iron segment. But who
really cares! I am sure most detectorists aren't interested in digging up
2007 quarters anyway!
As for the good stuff like silver, copper,
and brass items they sound nice strong signals in the coin range that you
can be about 90% sure with some practice you will be digging a worthy
Pennies and silver coins sound a repeating bell tone when
you position the coil directly over the top of the target. I hear a lot of
novices complain that it can't find gold alone but it falls into the
pulltab range. This is true but one thing to remember is that even a $1000+
detector will give you the same signal! Just keep digging up those pull
tabs and you will find gold! This detector is one heck of a deal for the
price so don't be deterred by some of the negative comments you may have
heard. Just be patient and learn what the machine is telling you.
Remember that the detector is just a tool to find the metal, and
you are the real detector! I hope this review is of help to anyone
interested! Thanks for reading!

Best dtector for the money
November 02, 2007
I have owned, several metal dtectors Whites coinmaster, bounty hunters but
the Garrett Ace 150 is by far the best metal detector for the money. The
new Garrett Technology is great , you can screen out undesirable items with
the 3 settings which is great for me as my house was built in the 1880s and
they used to bury their garbage in the back yard. I used it for 2hours the
first time and after I got used to it I Found 1 quarter, 3 dimes , 11
pennies, a silver necklace charm, a l metal dresser knob,and 2 chunks of
undetermined metal I am very pleased with the Ace 150, and I highly
reccommend it. Thanks Garrett.

A basic beginner
August 22, 2007
This is a very basic, very beginner metal detector. No pinpointing
capibilities causes larger holes to be dug and makes the target harder to
find. Save your money and get the ACE 250. It's a much better detector
with more features and pinpointing capibility and it isn't that much more
Great Beginner Detector
February 14, 2007
After careful consideration, and research I decided to buy an Ace 150 as my
first detector. So far it has been great. I've found some coins, pull tabs,
old coke cans etc. I cant wait for the weather to clear up, then I can
drive to Galveston and scan the beaches there. The pin pointing is easy to
understand if you read the manual or watch the dvd that usually comes with
it, the sounds are easy to identify, its light weight, and seems fantastic
for a beginner like me.
