Well designed, Easy to use

Joe Myers in Sacramento, CA USA - best
My first Metal Detector and I'm very impressed at how well designed the Prizm 5G is and how easy it is to use. Of course, it takes practice but if you're looking for a detector that does easy ground balancing, 8 tone identification, and pinpoint accuracy, this would be a great choice. I love it.

Great and Easy To Use

Chauck in oklahoma - best
Easy to assemble. The only problem is the little plastic bolt that holds the coil. It doesn't take much to break it, however, it's easy to use. I found lots of help online, on the White's page. I am having fun finding things, and I just wish it was spring time! It's a litle hard to find things when the ground is frozen. Lots of fun and a blast!

Great Quality

Great machine! It's easy to use right out of the box. My 2nd detector. I have found coins in areas that had just been hunted by more expensive machines.

Great Detector!

Carlos in Elk Grove, CA - best
I tried out the prizm 5G at the beach and some parks and found mostly coins and metal objects of little value. I've just started metal detecting recently. I also have a Fisher F2. Both detectors find coins at 6+ inches easily. The discrimination tones on both detectors seem very accurate. Sensitivity adjustment helped at the beach. The 5G has a manual ground balance control that helps at the beach and is user-friendly for any beginner. Larger metal objects are detected much deeper than I expected: a beer can was detected at 11-12 inches at the beach. Would have been a cool find if it was full! :) The VCO pinpointing feature on the G5 is extremely accurate and helpful. It cuts down the recovery time significantly. The controls are easy to use and easy to read large display. I had lots of fun using this detector!
