NO REGRETS !
Despite the cold weather these past few months, I've been out several days a week and for several hours a day. I've searched beaches, fields and yards. I find the Discovery 1100 to 95% accurate on its target depth indicator. As for it's target identifier; its accuracy is no better or worse than any other model (of any brand)out there.
It's a very accurate, light weight, sturdy, user friendly, and a fun detector to use. I bought it NEW and paid less than $90.00 for it and would NOT trade it for a model costing five times as much! It's just THAT good; and I'd recomend it for anyone. P.S. KEEP THE HOBBY ALIVE & WELCOMED BY LAND OWNERS. IF YOU DIG A HOLE, BE SURE TO COVER IT UP. (I want to come behind you later on and dig what you missed!).

A good intro to the hobby.
Users Guide very easy to read (I read it twice
on the bus ride in and home from work 25 mins each way).
BH/D1100 is very easy to assemble.
Easy to operate has led display on targets 0-6"
and target types Silver/Copper, Gold/Middle, Iron/Low
My only complaint is that it appears to have about a 6" horizontal orbit around the search coil that detects playground equipment and rebar in cement. Once I learned that I see this as being a very useful tool in a treasure hunting hobby. I would recommend this to anyone new to the hobby as a way to get a intro at a lower cost.
