Does the job at a fraction of the cost... – Handheld Metal Detector with Adjustable Sensitivity and Vibration Alert (MD-3003B1) Reviews

1. It works as advertised.
2. Does everything you need a handheld metal detector to do.
3. Vibration function is nice for when you don't want to alert the person you're scanning.
4. Unbelievable price.
1. Holster is a bit cheesy, but should work.
2. Seems to really only scan near the tip.
3. Battery door is a little cheap, but at least it slides - so you shouldn't lose it.
Considering how much a "real" one costs, this one is a steal. I tested this by concealing 16 knives on my body and letting my wife scan me. She found 15 of 16 (the 16th was polymer).
If you need one of these, buy it - I've gone through the first 9V and it doesn't show any signs of wonkiness. Heck - buy one even if you don't need it. It's just cool.
