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 Teknetics Omega 800020+ years experience in the hobby...
I just bought this machine after using the Tesoro Cortes for 4 years, I must say it out performs my other two detectors (Cortes and MXT) by a long shot. The TID is spot-on every time and the depth is incredible. My mothers home (circa 1890) has been "hunted to death" over the years by my entire family who also metal detects as a hobby. Needless to say, my new Omega 8000 produced a class ring dropped 36 years ago by my father in law. It was approximately 11" deep and passed over hundreds of times by various other detectors. I also found a couple wheaties, a .22 caliber bullet and u.s. army sergeant pin.
The Omega 8000 has definitely replaced my Cortes and MXT as the #1 grab and go unit. I'm currently preparing a video of targets buried at exactly 10" - the Cortes can't touch them, and the MXT gives a "very faint whisper" whereas the Omega sounds off a clear distinct beep with the TID clearly displaying 56 (gold ring).
Incredible machine and deserves MUCH more credit - I recommend the 11" DD coil and get a Kindle screen cover and cut it to size to fit the Omega's faceplate, because it does scratch easily.
