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.

Low quality for a high price
This machine is basically a repackaged Fisher 1280 machine. It detects well when it works. Do not confuse this with the Dectector pro products of yester year that were made with quality in mind. This machine has lots of design flaws. Mainly the headphones are uncomfortable, the wires easily break. I heard a rattle inside of mine, taking it out of the box for the first time. Opened it up and it was a screw that came out and was bouncing around. Never again will I be tricked by this company. Also beware that the propoganda machine runs strong on this brand. They have many forums that are manipulated to make their product appear like good machines.

In a nut shell, these things are a Hokie design.
