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.

Prizm6T 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..
