I found a DFX at a local pawn shop, was listed for $350, but was able to talk them down to $100! I couldn't pass it up. I use it for a back up machine. I've only taken it out about 5 times, but have found some great stuff. Including an 1854 seated half dime, several V nickels, Indian Head cents and a lot more. It's very accurate with Target ID and depth. Definitely a fun machine, would recommend for a backup detector for sure. People complain about the depth, but I have found smaller coins up to 7.5 inches. A lot of options, but I usually run the stock "Coin" and "Jewelry" modes and modify the settings from there.

I have NEVER found soooo many coins with a detector in my life. This thing is a coin magnet and the VDI's on the coins are accurate.

Having had 9 different detectors, I have a good idea how they operate. I found the DFX to be far inferior for the price in its depth capacity. I had $200 detectors go deeper than the DFX. Good Pinpoint and depth indicator, but poor depth. I traded it for a Minelab and could not be happier with everything but the depth meeter. Be careful! Also, you need an engineering degree to program this detector. Good Luck.

Great machine for finding coins! If you do some minor tweaking of the preset coin mode, such as Preamp, AC, DC, and VDI Sensitivities, and Sweep Speed, this detector works well. Also using tone ID is great for identifying different coins. I have found thousands of coins with the DFX over the last 6 years. A little hard to get started and learn the ins and outs of this machine, but once you get the hang of it, you will love it!
