This is one awesome detector!!!
I bought this detector mainly as a back-up and have found it to be an extremely capable machine.
First off, the features of this unit, ease of use, and overall performance is on par with a lot of more expensive machines.
The features on this machine that make it stand out are the Auto Trac, the well designed display, machine balance and weight (especially with the new 4X6 DD coil), pinpointing, and depth. White's hit a home run with this baby.
After taking it out initially, I have found over $8.00 in clad and 1 silver rosie at a depth of about 6". The machine was a little jumpy on the rosie but the audio couldn't have been better.
In my oppinion, you could spend more money but you can't do any better than this machine for the money.

The Whites prism 6t is a great machine.
It also has a tone discrimination that has a low tone for most junk,
and squelches higher for larger coins and the better items.
The sensitivity is great and easily adjusted to help find more stuff or eliminate some bottle caps here and there.
One of the best features of this detector is the ability to manually discriminate the nails and bottle caps and still find
"all the goodies."
I did a test in my yard with my wedding ring, bottle cap, nails, and coins of every size. The 6t showed me what it was, how deep it was and by the pitch of the tone if it was a big item.
I turned the discrimination on for nails, caps and foil and it eliminated those items while still pinpointing my ring and all the coins.
This is my first detector, and feel it is a great detector for beginners because it is easy to use and really finds all kinds of metal.
I have found a lot of coins but nothing too old. I can't wait for my first gold!

Prizm6T needs redesigned Fast
NEXT as I did a full 80 plus hours of detecting beach, will rogers and vencie beaches plus parks, carnival grounds I came up with (if my count is correct) even with using DISC as per instructions and SENS over 637 $0.50 icon errors, not counting a dime was a penny nickel a dime quarter became old bottle caps etc, well I will be sending this back to whites this coming friday 02 06 2009 the old lemon saying is right also on the $0.50 error each time I had to raise the 6T up about 4 feet off the ground so it would finally clear the screen, the pin point needs more space as the all metal is right below it together and trying to cancel all metal was a chore which was best cleared by pulling the battery pac out, also on/off switch the OFF worked maybe 3 out of 8 times so I just pulled the battery pac out each time this 6T is NOT what white's electronics is all about.
I started using a whites S-63 over 40 yers ago and many in between the years, so I feel I have a little experience, I also took the 6T up to Big Bear Ca, and the same thing, I spent 2 days and no good finds either... so Ken Jr had better get his butt in gear and Fix my 6T quick..
