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.

Not worth the money........
This detector looks nice and is well balanced. The idea is great but this detector has serious problems with electrical interference. It is that bad that you can NOT hunt where you want like within the city limits. It may work somewhere in the middle of the desert.
In the city you have to set sensitivity to 25 out of 99 to make it work but than you have the depth of a 60$ China detector.
You may have read all the good stuff about this detector on the T2 Forum.....but read again....all the bad posts get deleted because a dealer runs that forum. I think First Texas (Bounty Hunter, Teknetics) should stop selling that detector until they solve the interference problem. For 800 $ the worst detector (performance) i have ever used.
If you read my other reviews here you will see that i use any brand that works but this T2 is sure NOT top of the line.
