I have owned a couple of other metal detectors in the past thirty years. But I must say that the Garrett Ace 350 is a great metal detector for first time users or seasoned users. I recently bought one and on my first hunt I found a gold piece worth about $2,100.00. Also I found a 1935 blue crown spark plug. I was offered $300.00 for it. My Garrett has already payed for itself. Plus I'm having a blast using it. Thanks Mr.Garrett!

Great Machine

Nomadnailer in WV, USA - best

I bought the Ace 350 Because I have a Tesoro Lobo and wanted a machine with a display screen. The Ace 350 seemed like the cheapest, quality machine for the job. I took the Ace on its first outing at a city park in the area and found a 14K gold wedding band with 3 diamonds. The machine paid off on its first outing!

Awesome Gift!

Kevin M in South Texas - best

I got it as a Christmas gift from my wife. She new I had an interest in the hobby so she decided to buy me the Ace 350. I'm extremely satisfied with it. I've found plenty of buried trash: bottle caps, tabs, foil, cans, etc., and even some coins. Two thumbs up from me but I am a beginner.

Good Little Coin Hunter

DainBramage1991 in Central NH - best

I've had my Ace 350 for several weeks now, and I'm finally to the point where I can understand what it is telling me. This is also my first detector, so there is a pronounced learning curve but I think I've got it down now.
Here in central New Hampshire the soil is very rocky and loaded with iron. I've found that if I eliminate the first 2 notches of iron discrimination, I spend less time digging up rust halos and more time finding coins. Even with the soil being as difficult as it is around here, I can usually get a reliable 8 inches of depth, and sometimes deeper with larger targets. I've found that the unit is most responsive without getting unstable if I leave the sensitivity at 2 notches below maximum.
My only complaint so far, and this may be due to my own inexperience, is that it LOVES aluminum. You will find every single pull tab, soda can, and chunk of foil. However, this is offset completely by the fact that it will find every single coin also.
As for this being an upgraded Ace 250, I don't know, but it's probably true. Considering the rave reviews that people have been giving the 250 (I did a lot of research before deciding to go with the 350), any upgrade to it can only be a good thing.
I gave the Ace 350 a 5 star rating because it does everything that Garrett says it should, and because I am happy with it so far. The accessories that came with it are handy: they include a pouch, a digging tool, an all-weather hood for the detector head, and an uncomfortable but functional set of headphones. The detector itself is light and easy to swing, and seems to have good battery life (I'm still on the set that came with it). The DD coil makes pinpointing easy, and it is usually accurate to within an inch or 2 in the left-right axis.
Overall, this is a very good metal detector for the money, in my opinion. If you're thinking about buying an Ace 250, I strongly suggest spending a little more and getting the 350 instead - You'll be glad you did.

ACE 350 - Just an Upgrade of 250

Baoluo in Queensland, Australia - good

This is my first metal detector, and I won't try to pretend to give a full professional account of the 350 because I'm in the early stages of fully testing it out.
My feeling so far, though, is that this is not a revolutionary upgrade of the 250, but more a bit of a moderate tweak. The coil is welcomed, and iron discrimination is fine but it's not very significant: you just have a few more notches to eliminate iron at various levels of sensitivity. I've got the feeling that the upgrade was conservative and done in purpose. And I think I know why.
They've leap-frogged the ACE and put all their real "revolutionary" upgrades into the Garrett AT Pro but at US$300 more the ACE350!
For someone like me who was thinking of whether to buy the 250 or 350, I think it was a good choice to get this 250 upgrade, and it IS simply an upgrade.
You should seriously think about whether you want to spend more money if your ALREADY have an ACE 250. Personally, I wouldn't do it because the upgrade is not significant enough to warrant it.
If I was really itching for a real upgrade, looks like the AT Pro would do the job, but, at about US$600 this personally prices me out.
Anyway, I'll keep on testing the 350, happy in the knowledge that I have an upgraded ACE 250 that has good street credibility.
