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.

Nice detector
I bought one of these as my first detector. I was probably over my head with its complexity, but I learned a lot.
Garretts are bright green, and this one had a space age look, and it talked! I was always surrounded by kids. It taught me to use headphones.
I went whole hog and bought several coils, and the first time out with the biggest coil was overwhelming. It picked up everything and it was impossible to separate.
I think it was this detector that started the rumors that Garretts were toys, because of its bright green, toylike color, and its talking mode. But, it was and still is a first rate detector with a lot of useful features.
Two things I have noticed with Garretts detectors. They are easy to use, and have excellent discrimination with coins. If it says dime, its a dime, and so on.
The Grand Master Hunter CXIII was ahead of its time by a large margin, and other manufacturers could not compete, so they mocked it.
