Garrett ACE 250 Metal Detector

Product Review (submitted on May 15, 2009):
The Garrett Ace 250 is easy to use but for the money it should have a different tone for the different coins. I had a Bounty Hunter before that was a little less expensive and I could tell by the sound what coin I had found and I liked that much better. That said, I used the Bounty Hunter most of the time at the beach, and I have only used the Ace once at the beach. I have used the Ace 250 on several play grounds and around a couple sports fields and have found a few coins. The depth finder is useless and I don't think the ID meter is very useful either. Overall, I would rate it a 5 out of 10. If this one stopped working, I would not buy the same one again. I thought the Garrett would be better than the Bounty Hunter but I was disappointed. I guess you just have to get into the $400 to $500 range to get a half way decent detector and I don't do enough detecting to spend that much for a better unit. Good Luck. It is a lot of fun and exciting when you find something. The last time I was at the beach I found a set of car keys and a pair of glasses. Poor guy must have dropped his keys and could not find them because he had also lost his glasses. They were about a foot apart under about 3" of sand.
