Most helpful review for Whites MX5Mx5 very nice!!
Whites newest detector based on the mxt platform. I really like this detector.
Things I like:
It has all the qualities of the mxtpro but in a fully digital design. Its ability to go deep with good vdi. Simple to use yet enough different settings to please most anyone. Lightening fast response makes it great in trashy areas. The mx5 is very very good at finding good targets in the rusty nail infested yards. It also uses all of the eclipse coils.Its lighter and feels very comfortable.
The things that I'm OK with but could be better:
The coil connection kinda tight. That's about it. So many good features and it performs so well makes the mx5 one of my favorite detectors.

Most helpful review for Whites Classic IDX PROIDX Pro, Great all rounder !
I have owned my IDX Pro for about 9 years, also have other more expensive higher end machines, DFX and Minelab Explorer. The up market detectors may have some advantages at some sites, but as the best all round machine the IDX is still the one I chose to use more often than not. Good depth, good discrimination. 9 years constant use never a single problem. Ok no battery indicator. But do you really need one? The newer Whites machines, Prisim etc were not a step forwards, So if an IDX comes up for sale BUY IT. You wont be disapointed and it may well out last you!
