Most helpful review for Minelab GO-FIND 20Great for beginners
The Minelabs Go Find 20 is a sophisticated but incredibly easy to use. Pros: All in one, collapsible and very portable. Easy to read screen, one button operation. Sensitivity is simple to control with one button. Audio can be bypassed and you can detect with your eyes only. Self leveling and self compensation means you can switch on and go. Good recovery so you can pick up different contacts. Discrimination is simple, iron and non-ferrous or non-ferrous.
Cons: A bit twitchy on the beach... You need to adjust the sensitivity if you’re getting ‘pings’ all of the time. (Although you do get used to ignoring the obvious junk -a signal is very clear when you’ve got something). For the money, it’s very clever!

Most helpful review for Garrett Treasure Ace 100Treasure Ace 100
I've had the Garrett Treasure Ace 100 for about 2 months now and have gotten pretty good with it. The trick with it seems to be turn the discriminatior up to the start of the coins section. Then when you swinging the detector only dig the stuff which beeps on when the coil is passed over it both directions. I'm sure I'm missing stuff this way but anything else is to frustrating for me. Beer tops allways show up no matter what you set the discrimination at. Pinpointing is hard and I've quit bothering. Now I just try and guess close to where the find is and dig a 8 - 10 inch circle.
Max depth for coin sized objects seems to be about 7 inches. Once I dug a hubcap at 2 feet however.
On the plus, Batteries last quite a while. Maybe 20 - 30 hours.
This is my first detector so I have nothing to compare it to.
I would not recommend buying this detector because you very quickly be out shopping for an upgrade. That said I have had a lot of fun with it. Found a 1934 Tag der arbet badge, a few silver coins, and 2 rings. My oldest find so far is 1907.
hope this is helpful.
