Good but be warned.

The QDII is a great machine but obly when used in the correct conditions. I have found that when you use it on the type of rich moist soil you find on alot of lawns you cand beat this machine, in these conditions i have detected .22 shells at about 6" and quite a few 303 shells from WWII at up to 8" however when you take it to some rough, rocky and dry conditions and also sandy freshwater riverbeds, volcanic regions etc.. the detector will be un-usable.
In these conditions the unit beeps continually, so much so that at some places it will randomly beep 20 times in one swing. in these cases the unit can still detect quite deep however you usually have to swing 10 times in the same place for every single swing to see if there is actually a repeatable signal, and thus a metal object there.
My suggestion if you are living inland is to get something with manual ground ballance. Also be very careful not to lift the coil too high as this also gives alot of false signals.
In conclusion you should take careful note of ground conditions you will be detecting before buying this machine, it is perfect for most coastal and especially residential areas as i was able to find small nails at upto 6" deep directly under a powerline so if you live in a city where you expect electrical interference this detector is excellent for coinshooting, and jewelery hunting but if you live in areas with any reasonable amount of iron, tin or any metalic based mineralisation go for a manual ground ballance detector. I know that this generally goes without saying but i have seen alot of reviews and field test reports climing the QDII's auto ground ballance is the ducks nuts of all detectors, personally i believe no matter where you are manual ground ballance is worth the small difference in price because you never know when you might need it.
If you only plan on using your detector locally make sure you buy the detector locally that way the person you buy it off will know if it is the best choice for the ground conditions you are going to encounter.

Super detector for the price!

This is a great detector for the money. Lot's of high-end features at a lower end price. Target ID is right-on most of the time, but not perfect. It has been a great coin shooter and relic detector. Get on off *bay for the best prices.

Awesome performance for the price- Easy to use but adjustable enough for those demanding hunts. In just a few short months i have found 6 silver coins 22 wheat cents, a 2cent piece, an indian head penny, $40 in clad and a sterling silver ring

Great machine at a great price to get you into metal detecting. Tone ID, visual target ID on the meter as well as a depth reading. Everything you will ever need in a detector. Excellent depth but best of all great discrimination against iron and other trash objects.
