Most helpful review for Whites Spectra VX3

VX3 is GREAT!
I started detecting with a Bounty Hunter Tracker IV about 4 months ago. A month later, I decided that I loved the hobby, and I wanted to get my "ULTIMATE" machine to use for the next 10 years.

So I went all out, and ordered the White's Spectra VX3. I was tempted by the V3I, but I decided that the newer VX3 had all the settings I wanted. I am so pleased with my decision, and all my finds (including an 1898 Barber Dime in perfect condition)!

In fact, tomorrow, I'm ordering my wife her own VX3. With a few months VX3 experience, I again considered getting the V3I. However, there's really nothing that I can't already do with my VX3.

I have only had this for 2 weeks but I like it better than the DFX. For those people that are good with the DFX it may be a good call. I don't recomend it for one just starting out. If simple is what is desired then this is not ideal. It is the only detector that I ever used that shows what every frequency is doing in color (lots of info at once on screen). It does find deep targets and id them well once ya learn how to interpret all the info on screen. Like the DFX it will be a useless noise maker if one doesn't know what they are adjusting.

I HIGHLY recomend reading the manual cover to cover. I found lots of things this can do that I wouldn't have found exploring the menus. The menu system is not bad. most changes can be made and auto saved without entering menu mode. I like it complex and this is turning out to be my favorite detector. I also like the wireless headphones even though the price seems a bit high at $250 if not purchased with the detector.
