Impressive
A friend of mine recommended it. I didn't know it was Turkish, but it did the job, was great at the beach, I am now experimenting with it in the Israeli forests near historic sites etc.... Great detector for the money....

Most helpful review for Teknetics Omega 8000

20+ 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.
