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

posted by shao.fu.tzer on 05/29/2008 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
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.
Cons:
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.
Other:
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).
Bottomline:
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.
