White's Spectra V3i Metal Detector

White's Spectra V3i Metal Detector

Product Review (submitted on November 13, 2009):
A GOLD RING STINGER! If you want a machine that will make it easier to pick out the gold from the trash, the V3i is the one for you. I have had the machine since it came out in 2008 and have barely touched the surface of what it has to offer. You can program almost everything on this baby. The only thing it won't do is go out and find the gold by itself. You still have to put some thought into deciding whether to dig or not, however, the more you get to know the machine and how it reads certain targets, the more your decisions will be bang on. Since using the machine, I have found 2 or 3 gold rings and many, many coins (some of them silver). I must say that being from Canada, some machines don't pick up Canadian dimes, quarters, loonies and toonies very well due to their composition. The V3i, however, will sniff these coins out and give a loud, clear signal every time. Since owning the machine my coin count has gone way up.

I still have a lot to learn about this machine, and haven't really pushed the depth on it, but I am certainly happy with it's ability on modern coins and jewelry in parks and schoolyards. I have an E-Trac as well, and the two machines compliment one another very well. Although I prefer to use the V3i for parks and school grounds, I find the E-Trac a slightly better machine when it comes to finding older coins and relics at depth. Perhaps with time and patience and practice I will wring out more depth from the V3i.
Bottom line: this detector is a great machine for beginners and seasoned veterans alike. It is a machine that you can grow with. Ten years down the line it will still be a great detector. Purchase one, spend the time getting to know it, and the rewards will come.
