Most helpful review for Whites MX5

Mx5 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.

Ever wonder why...
Ever wonder why 9 out of 10 people will call a machine 4 to 5 stars and one person comes allong and calls it 2 stars. Look no further than the operator. When you read reports that your machine is getting great depth and discrimination results, yet you can only get 4 inches depth and bad Disc.results what should that tell you? It should tell you that you eather have a bad machine and it needs to be sent in, or you, the operator must be doing something wrong. The White's M6 is one of the most user friendly, simple yet powerful detectors to date. The fact that it has many, many good and many better coils available is just Icing on the Cake. If you have a M6 and you are not getting the performance you think you should get(which should be outstanding)think about it.
