Most helpful review for Nokta Velox OneNokta velox one
I have found the Velox One to be just what I was looking for in a metal detector. I find it well balanced and a pleasure to swing. It performs well, looks good and simple to set up the controls. Ground balancing is easy, after a few seconds of switching on I have it running silent.
The signals are good and clear, its easy to distinguish between the low iron grunt and the good signal of a possible good find. The Velox does have three tones but I only listen for the iron grunt, any signal but that low iron grunt I dig it.
Depth wise, well, some Velox videos show tremendous depths, I haven't found this. Bearing in mind when a company selling their detectors they set up perfect ground conditions to show depths, so, in perfect ground conditions I think it would find those depths. Most depth I've been finding goodies is around 10 inches. Maybe I'm not walking over anything deeper as I have dug iron over a foot deep. Around 10 inches is a good depth. There again, it all depends on the ground conditions.
Weight, its a tiny bit heavier than what I have been used to, but I can go 8 hours without any discomfort, if I'm feeling weak I always have my detecting harness. The recovery speed is how they advertise it, very fast indeed, no problem detecting iron contaminated areas.
The battery life is as they say. I have been detecting two 8 hour day sessions with no need to recharge the battery. The settings I mostly use if ground conditions allow are: Sensitivity 9. Iron Disc FS. Ground Balance 6. Iron OFF. Signal Audio 2.
My honest opinion, in my experience using the Velox One, everything I had seen and read about it is true. I find it a great machine. As I said above, I've yet to get those great depths they talk about, but it is deep enough to be up amongst all the other machines for the price and most important for me its not complicated. Really its an easy switch on and go machine. I'm enjoying it and have no plans to get rid of it.

Most helpful review for Whites Prizm 6TPrizm6T needs redesigned Fast
I purchased my 6T 12/08/08 and waited until Xmas day to open. Well 1st the coil even with the rubber washers & a hard tightening it flips and flops no way to fix this. I called whites and was told that maybe the mold for coil was not precise, THEN I took it out after new years to test, well I have big fingers & had to use needle nose pliers to get the coil cord plugged in like the manual states, this is another bad design that and the unit is cheap plastic and not metal is no help either.
NEXT as I did a full 80 plus hours of detecting beach, will rogers and vencie beaches plus parks, carnival grounds I came up with (if my count is correct) even with using DISC as per instructions and SENS over 637 $0.50 icon errors, not counting a dime was a penny nickel a dime quarter became old bottle caps etc, well I will be sending this back to whites this coming friday 02 06 2009 the old lemon saying is right also on the $0.50 error each time I had to raise the 6T up about 4 feet off the ground so it would finally clear the screen, the pin point needs more space as the all metal is right below it together and trying to cancel all metal was a chore which was best cleared by pulling the battery pac out, also on/off switch the OFF worked maybe 3 out of 8 times so I just pulled the battery pac out each time this 6T is NOT what white's electronics is all about.
I started using a whites S-63 over 40 yers ago and many in between the years, so I feel I have a little experience, I also took the 6T up to Big Bear Ca, and the same thing, I spent 2 days and no good finds either... so Ken Jr had better get his butt in gear and Fix my 6T quick..
