It Works For Me

John Aaron in greensburg pa - best

I have a dfx-300 and it works for me. It does go deep put I have never found a coin over 3 inch deep. I found a 1818 penny it was just 2 inch deep. I found an old horse shoe 22 inchs down, a beer can 24 inchs deep, a small round bead (it looked like siver but it was melted aluminum) about 23 inchs deep. I found a 1944 silver quarter with 6 weat pennys; the detector said "dime-penny". I found a silver dime that gave out the broken-up signal. I found a 1944 quarter and a 1942 dime that had a nail in the same hole. I have had this detector for two years and I got a lot of miles out of it so far. It seems just like my old White I got in 1974. If I get a hit I dig. This is a good all around metal detector for me, but I still like my old Whites metal detector for sure.

Gary uk in united kingdom. - best

Super deep with the new super 12 coil. Will give 10 inches depth on coins. Basically a dfx with a big coil and sticker on the box that says dfx 300.
A match for any minelab for sure.

Too much money to too little performance!

Kenny Graham in Somewhere California USA - one star

This is machine doesn't have the depth of many so called lesser machines.
Here are the White's greatest current machines!
The M6:
Great ground tracking exceptional depth. Turn and go simple operation! That's what you want, right? To go out and locate stuff? Also is an unsung nugget finder. PS. Great Beach Machine!
The MXT:
Same circuit for ground tracking. 3 modes of operation...ok cool. M6 goes deeper.
The GMT:
Beats many PI machines in soil littered with iron. Fantastic nugget shooter & can track black sand to locate pay streaks for your dry washer! Amazing machine.
I've owned many and I regularly use the M6 & GMT. Get the M6 and you'll kick butt on your DFX buddies. I have a background in electronics... and have taken these machines apart, and am in the process of building perfectly tuned coils for them. I know what I'm talking about.
I hate hype!
I believe Whites to be the best out there, but not every design is a hit.

Not a Ripoff

Hugo in NJ - best

Don't take that guy's word for it. Do your own research.

Rip Off

Thomas in CHICAGO IL - one star

Do not buy. Go for the MXT instead and save yourself some money.
