The Deus is the Best Detector Out There

Tim Myers in Watervliet, NY USA - best
A little over a year ago my good friend Sergei UpstateNY was visiting with his XP Deus and staying at my home. Needless to say we went out detecting with the XP Deus. Within 2 weeks I owned one. Now I sell them! I have used Minelabs for years. Don't get me wrong they are great detectors but they are heavy, especially with the X-1 Probe. The XP Deus is hands down the best detector I have ever used. It weighs under 2 pounds and is just a killer on sites we have detected for years; you know those "detected out" sites! If you want your excitement back, you NEED to get one of these detectors!
If you make up your mind and wish to pay a reasonable price for the Deus or its wireless headphones, please contact me through my webpage: http://empirestatemetaldetectors.com/ (please copy and paste it into your browser window). If you live in the Capital Region of New York), you may want to join our metal detecting club - Empire State Metal Detector Association (ESMDA - http://www.esmda.org/), based in Latham, NY. BTW, I'm not just a club member, I'm also its president. :) Happy hunting!

XP Deus = Ferrari of Metal Detectors

JackCo in Mechanicsville, VA - best
PROS: Light Weight, Completely Wireless, unmatchable ease and speed when changing search coils; Advanced Programmability, Firmware Internet Updates, four Non-Motion Modes and easy Ground Balancing.

CONS: Display is not Color (this is trivial, but my only negative)

The XP Deus with WS5 is the Ferrari of metal detectors. It does have a learning curve... requiring some study to fully appreciate. Performancewise it exceeds all the competition and completely rewrites the engineering design approach to metal detecting. It's just a real pleasure to use. The competition; here in the States, has to realize that the days of carrying a six pound box around, with wires everywhere are ending. Being the Ferrari of metal detectors it is expensive. It looks and feels expensive, but the performance is second to none. It's the best available... I'm wondering what XP has planned next?

Lightweight that is a real Heavyweight!

Charlotte49er in Charlotte, NC USA - best
I have been a metal detectorist for 35 years. I personally have owned over 35+ metal detectors in that time. Just about every brand you can think of. (I started with a Heathkit machine back in the 70s) The XP DEUS is hands down the finest metal detector I have ever used. Many people think it's a toy because of it's ightweight. This is no lightweight. In fact, it's a heavyweight against all other metal detectors! My best find to date is a 10K gold woman's class ring under a steel bolt!

"For There Is One XP Deus (God)"

Sergei UpstateNY in Albany, NY USA - best
After having used the Minelab FBS metal detectors for 12 years, I was very skeptical about the XP's latest model - Deus, for its futuristic looks and unusual innovations incorporated into a metal detector of this class. But when I tried the Deus, version 2.0, at the "searched-out" site for the first time, my first impression was "Wow! It can't be real!" Five months have passed, and I still have the same impression... If you would like to read the rest of my review, please visit this page: http://metaldetectingworld.com/xp_deus_metal_detector.shtml (copy this link and paste it into your browser window). Happy hunting!

Sheer Convenience

Rallymaker in Hove Sussex UK - best
Well, like many of you out there, I have purchased quite a few detectors over the last few years, and I have got to say the Deus is the dogs testicles, it is easy to transport, physicaly light as a feather. It has cordless headphones, remote control box, very fast response, and it performs like no other machine I have used.
I did pooh pooh it when it first came out because it was so expensive. It still ain't cheep, thats for sure.
This machine is a wake up call to all other manufacturers, and they will have a hard job to follow: big box old tec is out the window!.
Are there any draw backs in performance? None even on wet sand once you learn how to set it up.
XP leads, others can only follow.

My Thoughts on My Deus

Deusbloke in UK - best
Honest opinion is it's a cracking machine, and I prefer it over my E-Trac, but not because of the depth issue as they are both about the same. However, with the new coil, the Deus's detecting depth increased. The reason is that the Deus is lightning fast, and nothing passes by undetected under its coil. Although my E-Trac is good in all soil conditions, it does null and lose good targets over iron. Doing an air test over a target next to iron isn't an accurate way to do it. Checking a target next to iron needs to be done while the target is in the ground. The Deus is capable of picking out targets that are all close together with iron in between EFFORTLESSLY! With Deus' lightness + regular adjustments of the program parameters, you have a great machine. Some people voice concerns over battery life... Well, let me start by saying all the new Deuses have the upgraded battery, and, from experience, it's good for 13-15 hours of continuous operation before recharging. The in-field charger, which runs off one battery, takes around 5-10 mins to charge the coil, giving you around 3 more hours. Bear in mind that the battery is good for 3-4 years with regular use and only depreciates to 80% performance. And the replacement of the battery in English money equates to around 30. The best mode is the GMP mode run at 12 khz, but that's just my preference for the soil I use.
A great machine! So if you can afford one, then get the Deus - that's my advice!

Deus hits the mark

Wayne in Calgary, Alberta, Canada - good
I have been detecting for about 8 years and have tried many different types of detectors. I have an E-Trac as well as a V3. Each one has it's advantages, but they are both fairly heavy machines. The Deus is feather light. I can swing all day and my arm doesn't get tired at all. The machine is ultra sensitive and has good depth. It compares favourably to the other two. It has lots of variables to adjust for those who like to tweak their machines. The main reason I bought this machine was for travelling though. It is a powerful, compact detector that is extremely light weight and takes up very little space. The only reason that I didn't give it a 5 is that I haven't had it that long, so I didn't want to rate it the highest until I've had a chance to really get to know the machine. Anyway, the best price I could find was about 1700.00 Canadian dollars, which is comparable in price to the other two high-end detectors.
