Sleeper unit??
Have had my F19 now for a few months, and wow!! I really like this machine. I have had a number of detectors over the past few years, and find this is a keeper. Hits rock solid on good targets (for me, that means round targets, rings, coins and the such)... I am mostly a park jewelry hunter and find this machine gets the job done, very well! Runs nice and quiet, steady and solid... The Target ID, is amazing with this machine, at least mine is... I'm pretty impressed. Like others say, may not be the deepest, but not a slouch either... I'm always amazed at the depth I get with the stock coil. The V-Break makes it even more downright fun! I don't see a whole lot about the F19, not sure why... During research I heard there may have been some issues that some folks were having with the early model, but that you could send in to Fisher and they would rectify... But that the next batches had the fix...

All I know is that I could not be happier with the F19... Love the backlight as well... The ease of use, how balanced it is, the V-Break, the Tones, Disc, etc etc... For my needs... Pretty darn good and it earned itself a place in the stable of units I will not be selling. Just a lot of fun - heck even targets at depth the ID remained pretty solid! Being a jewelry hunter, I don't rely on target ID... But it is fun to have it and dig up things and see how or whether the machine was right or not... More often than not, this one is on the money. Is it perfect? Are any of them? Lol - Suits my needs to a T. One of my favorites, period. Have not tried it on the beach though so can't speak for that aspect.
Happy hunting!

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.
