You get what you pay for
Purchased to find a lost wedding ring. I'm not experienced with metal detecting so I bought this budget item to see if I could find it myself.
After following all the set up instructions we tested it out on the companion ring to make sure it would detect the type of metal but it wouldn't. Assuming we had the wrong type of metal we tried a few other metallic items and it struggled to find them even without anything obstructing. It made lots of exciting noises when going through the setup but fell silent when being used.
This one may be best as a present for a child to keep them busy for a few hours but don't expect them to find much. I'm 6'2 and found it wasn't long enough for comfortable use for very long.
its ok but it only makes a noise when it ...
its ok but it only makes a noise when it can not find any thing and doesnt make a noise when it find can find an object which is the other way round to metal detectors most people are used toAndy
Second Time Luck
I gave this 5 stars even thought I had a few problems with the first Metal Detector delivered to me and the with obtaining the replacement.
The first Metal Detector operated as many of previous customers had described, (bleep constantly then stop when over the metal sample item.
spoke to Technical Department of Electrovision Ltd, they did not know what was going on and told me it was faulty. When I told them the Amazon
customer reviews (65 of them) were littered with the same complaint the Tech Guy told me he would contact the manufacturers in China to sort it out.
I contacted Motionperformance - Waxacar about the problem, they sent me an E mail telling me to use the special Free Post Number to return it with. This was fine only I didn't receive the E mail so I rang them, a very polite and patient lady guided me to where I would find it in my Amazon Account. She did tell me they would send me a replacement, but 2 days later I received an E mail via Amazon to ask me if I wanted my money back or a replacement, which was irritating as I effectively had to wait an extra 3 days before I received the replacement.
When I first tried the replacement I thought I was going to have the same problem as the first one, made adjustments to the Discrimination Setting It started working just fine. I found the Discrimination button has to be turned right back to minimum to make it work correctly bleep when detector coil is past over metal object.
we have only tried it out around the garden and it seems to work fine, placed coins and jewellery down to test
Got this for my son who is 10, we have only tried it out around the garden and it seems to work fine, placed coins and jewellery down to test, only thing is it buzzed to detect the coins but not for the 9ct gold bracelet but the screen showed a change to tell us it was there alright, maybe were doing something wrong. Would def recommend it and have an adult figure it out to show a child. It was great fun and value for money.Sue

I lost a ring while gardening and bought the metal detector to find it,after I`d had a long search in vain.I found the ring within half an hour with the metal detector. The detector was a little difficultto set up and I have no idea how it might work for objects buried any distance, but for my purpose, it worked well. with an object near the surface.Lin C
Works well and fantastic customer service
Great piece of kit for the price. If you are looking at this in comparison to cheaper models then this one really is the cheapest one you can get that actually works.
Takes a bit of fiddling but that's to be expected.
We ordered this as a stocking filler type present and it initially worked as expected but over a number of days the on/off volume switch started working intermittently to the point that the device would not work any more.
But not to worry, contacted seller and they immediately sorted the issue for me, so all is well!
Son loves it and it's a laugh to play with.
We purchased this for our grandson for Christmas thought we would buy a good one due to comments on some of the cheap childrens models, we should have saved our money.It is very difficult to "tuned" still have not mastered it, it makes a constant noise & then goes quiet when we find the items we have hidden or simply does nothing but buzz. We simply pretend to find things & tune the volume ourselves to avoid the look of disappointment on his face.Stick a lid on a stick & hum it will be just as useful & do the same thing, nothing! Take our advise & save your moneyCraig
I don't really know
Technology is my field so I don't like to sound hopeless here but....
I had a go with it - it seemed to work in a horrible squeaky way....
Beyond that - I haven't seen it - which generally means it is not in use....
Buy something else - either one that works "obviously" or....
Just something else....
My boy is 10 - active - intelligent (I hope) - likes digging - so I thought this would be a winner........
