Most helpful review for Whites Spectra VX3VX3 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.

Most helpful review for Garrett GTI 2500Review; Pro's and con's
Having used the GTI 2500 for a year here are some thoughts:
Good depth (yeah coins at 8" is nice..)
Fair battery life
Sizing is nice
(helps the newbie, can use pinpoint to "size" a target as well)
Big LCD screen (helps those who have poor sight)
Over priced (yes, really only basic adjustments)
Sound "quality" is bad
(sounds are almost the same)
The headphones that come with sucks
Discrimination is not good for Europe/Sweden
(only practical for USA/North America??)
Coils are heavy.(9.5" and 12.5", epoxy filled?)
Note: it is more suited as a relic machine as it SUCKS for coins.
(you almost have to dig everything)
