Good but can't find small things – Handheld Metal Detector with Adjustable Sensitivity and Vibration Alert (MD-3003B1) Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
Really works as described, metal objects big enough can be detected 10-20 cm away. It has a switch for really big metal objects detection mode, so not to signal about keys, coins, etc. It has silent mode with vibration. Looks professional =)
Cons:
It's rather big. Actually it's OK for security services at some constant place, but not very comfortable to use when you want a mobile metal detector, hard to carry with you.
Sensitivity is good, but it doesn't detect screws, even few cm away. Sensitivity adjust resistor just broke when I tried to make the detector more sensitive, needed to resolder, I don't advice to use that adjust resistor.
Other:
Bottomline:
Personal usage of this metal detector is doubtful, be sure you understand its size and sensitivity before buy. If that parameters are OK for you, buy it, you won't regret.
