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 Bounty Hunter Tracker IVWedding Band Lost
Okay, a long story short. My wife and I went out on a Saturday morning and bought a Christmas tree in a lot, brought it home and put up the tree. After that, I strung lights up on the house, shoveled the walkway and sidewalk, etc.
While taking a shower that night I noticed my $800 white/yellow custom made wedding band was gone. Searched with a flashlight for hours, came up empty handed.
The next morning I went down to Cabela's and bought a Bounty Hunter Tracker IV, headphones, and batteries. Out in the parking lot I put it together, read the manual, and fine tuned the settings using my gold watch on the ground.
Went to the Christmas tree lot and after an hour had 12 extra cents in my pocket for my trouble. When I got home, I began searching the lawn, which was covered in 4 inches of fresh snow.
I found the ring about an hour later while searching the last spot I had been the day before. The ring had worked it's way through the snow and deep into the grass. Without this detector I NEVER would have found this ring.....even after the snow had melted.
In summary, this detector works fine for the price. Some advice, you have to adjust the settings using a known object before you start searching in order to find similar objects. In other words, test it out on a gold ring to maximize the detectors sensitivity and get a feel for the sounds it will make before you go looking around for more gold rings. This is the first detector I have ever used, so nothing to compare it too.
In my case, the detector cost about $165 including headphones and batteries (two nine volts), and it recovered my $800 wedding band, a priceless object to me and my Wife. Best part is, I had a great excuse to buy a detector, something I have always wanted!! Another Christmas miracle.
