You won't be disappointed
I've had my ACE250 for just over a year now. I figured I would've upgraded to a "better" detector by this point but the reality is this thing just keeps serving up the booty. What I like about it is you can swing it very quickly and it won't miss anything. In fact, I tried to fool it in tests with wild swings and wasn't able to. The way it identifies coins is uncanny. Also the way it identifies iron and other junk items is good too as some days you just don't want to dig nails so you can de-select the far left mark and you won't have to listen to it.

Someone mentioned that it is difficult to pinpoint with the elliptical coil. This is not true, but you do have to learn how to pinpoint with this machine. I will tell you how because this isn't in the instruction manual. Once you've pinpointed in the general area of the target, move it slightly off-side and release and quickly press pinpoint again. This will put the machine into a less sensitive range and you can pinpoint more tightly. Repeat as necessary. I show this to another hunter with the same unit for three years and he didn't know this trick. You can dig a coin 5 inches down with hole of only 2 inches diameter and not miss it.

I can recommend the ACE 250 without hesitation.
