I recieved my White's Prizm IV today. I have never used a metal detector before. Went to the park and had no problems learning how to pinpoint the target. I found coins and a fake gold ring, was so excited, it did not matter. I had a little trouble with trash, but hopefully it was just the user's error!

Extremely Accurater and Easy

John in Phila. suburbs, PA - best

I did a little detecting in the 1970s and just got back into the hobby. I was amazed at how technology has advanced the new metal detectors. I settled on the White's Prizm IV because I let others on the Internet "scare" me into not buying a higher end model (learning curve). Don't get me wrong, the Prizm IV is a great machine. I was able to use it and understand its controls in 10 minutes. I have been finding a lot of coins, even an 1899 cent. Its pinpointing abilities are dead on as is its depth indication. If the machine says, "it's at a certain spot at 2" down," you can bet that's where it is. I just feel that I have already out-grown this machine. This is a great machine for beginners and for people that are doing it for a relaxed "hobby." But if you are a fast learner, and are more serious about metal detecting, then buy a more advanced detector that you can grow into..

Prizm 4 - Can't Beat It!

Nathaniel in New Jersey, USA - best

Just got back into the hobby and researched different detectors for quality, features, ease of use, and price. I ended up with the White's Prizm 4 and I'm not sorry. Pinpoint is right on. Depth is right on, and the display and discrimination work great. I've dug silver dimes at 8 inches deep. You can just turn it on and go. This detector keeps up with the higher price machines by far.
