This looks pretty much like the Maplins one I bought a couple of years back.

A few hours fun but not really worth the money. Found a few bits of brass tubing etc. lying close to the surface, but even with the discrimination set to various settings it still picked up lots of tin foil. The lack of a comprehensible manual, or for that fact a comprehensible user interface, didn't really help.

I guess the jump up in price to a "real" machine makes this an interesting novelty.

When I bought mine I did get a realisation that there was about as much bullshot spoken in metaldetecting circles as in, for example, those of the HiFi geeks. When people asked in forums if the Maplin one was worth it "enthusiasts" would shoot them down and direct them to specialists "who would never sell such rubbish!" only to find said retailers selling exactly the same rebadged machines, with glowing sales blurb, for 3-4 times the price.

Another point is, this is Ebuyer who are A'holes. If you get a faulty one then it's pretty much evens that you have wasted your money.

Sorry but these are a bag of pants, spend more on a good starter machine like the garrett ace 250 and you won't regret it.

Got one of these when they were £40 in Maplin last year. Quite fun to play with, but I've only found junk so far.
