MPX Digital Metal Detector
Tom Matteson in Rathdrum, Idaho -
I have tested and used quite a few of the name brand metal detectors. For the price, the MPX Digital detector is very good. It has a couple of flaws; its a little on the heavy side and could have been built a little sturdier but overall the MPX is an excellant beginner to intermediate treasure hunter detector. I have found more items and at deeper depths than many of the other detectors I have used. It is not the best for gold nugget searchs, but does okay. There is not many accessories for the MPX. There is a 8 inch search coil you can upgrade to. I am completely satisfied with the detector and would purchase the MP line again.

It has to many flaws to pay $300.00, the control box wiggles "making false signals", very heavy, didn't care for it at all, but it did find every little peace of metal... to much, digging for foil, if you ask me, not happy with it. And Kellyco wouldn't help me trade up, bad.

Almost an Excellent Metal Detector
Dave T in Penn Hills, PA USA -
I have used the MPx for about a year now, and it has its good and bad points. It has excellent detection depth, good discrimination, and is easy to use. It detects targets that my other detector misses. The MPx misses the "excellent" category mainly because the shortcomings of its heavy search coil and "loose" frame construction. The coil tends to move around (lower shaft to mid-shaft) allowing the coil wire to move and generate false "50-cent" signals. The coil is very heavy causing the MPx to be very "nose heavy." This quickly causes arm fatigue. And the arm-rest is also too short compounding the balance problem. There is no "penny or nickel" icon - penneys and nickels report on the "ring" icon. The speaker sound is loud and high-pitched when pinpointing - dogs will love you! I suggest wearing earphones (turn volume down low at first or risk ear damage). The pinpoint button is a membrane switch ... it is sensitive to where you press it and you must look often up to see where your finger is located. I'd prefer a Whites-style trigger switch. Finally, the manual is very brief, inaccurate and basically useless.
Other than these shortcomings, the MPx is an inexpensive, excellent detector. If MP would correct the above flaws, I'd give it a five.
