Most helpful review for Deus XP

This detector is not your average detector. It is made in Europe. And one thing they have in Europe is centuries of iron. This detector is the answer to iron and trash masked targets. How does it do this? With a blazing fast recovery speed and precise coil detection. It is completely wireless and very easy to swing for a full day. Is it worth the expensive price? So far I would say yes. The target VDI is a little jumpy. But the tones are deadon. If it is a high tone dig it.

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.
