Most helpful review for Fisher F-19Sleeper 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.

Most helpful review for Whites Prizm 6TPrizm6T 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..
