Seben extreme

June 06, 2010
Recived seben extreme today, took it into garden to ground balance and test, guess what it wouldent. Verry unstable. Got in touch with dealer and they said send it back. Went to post 31 quid to post back to germany. Not a good detector stick with popular makes ??

Not to bad

February 03, 2010
This is my first detector and have to say its not bad for the money the instructions are poor but to be fair this unit is so easy to use that you don't really need them. Ive had a couple of good finds on the beach, worked fine. Good hunting all.

Good beginners tool

February 27, 2009
Great detector for beginners, I found myself enjoying every stupid beep that it made... the manual is translated horribly, however, its pretty simple to understand and work the detector. I'm trying to figure out if tuning means volume, sensitivity, or discrimination because i've tried all sorts of combinations and the detector just goes nuts sometimes. Ground balance is horrible, I live on guam, when I tried huntin on the shore all I got was ghost signals from the saltwater! But overall, this detector is ok for a beginner, its my first metal detector and im havin a blast! Hopefully I'll move up to some old spanish forts here on island on my next off day...

Didn't work until simple repair

February 16, 2008
My unit was almost totally useless until it was found that the LED mounting on the circuit board had cracked the track. After a small resolder task it now works and is very sensitive.

Nice beginners unit and affordable

January 20, 2008
Well this is my first metal detector and it was pretty simple, just put in batteries hold over and item and it registers or you can clear it out.
Cant get simpler. Haven't found anything good yet but hopefully soon, alot of nuts and nails so far.

Overall Rating 5 stars!

The manual is a joke, the detector is impossible to figure out with the english supplied manual.
Does anyone know how to get the proper ground balance or how to adjust the controls?

This is my first detector and construction seems prety cheap-plastic,light tubes.BUT you get what you pay for -it was about $100US compared to $400 detector. The wire connection to the head was messed up so I'll probably have to take it apart andhardwire it.It doesn't find anything so far but maybe no connection. They are right-manual is in bad English translation, I couldn't understand it.I'll post more when I figure the thing out!
