The Minelab X-Terra 50 is a great, low budget performer. I have found rings and coins but not of much value. But then, I don't really care because at my age (76) I do it for exercise and to keep somewhat busy.

The controls on this machine are practical and the instructions and cd's were most helpful. This metal detector and its big brothers are certainly worthy of being looked at for the beginner and for the very experienced. I would buy an upgrade in the future without hesitation.

I tried out so many different brands, prices, easy to operation, etc. Finally, I got a nice Minelab X-Terra 50. When I got the package and put all together, then go outside and turn on the X-Terra 50 for test with several metal on the grounds, then it ready to go. Very easy operation and understand how it works! Next day, I found a very oldest dime, 1876! It stayed under four inches deep for many years and X-Terra 50 found it!

I recommend that you should go to the metal detector stores and ask them for test and try out to see if you like. Best metal detector ever!

Thanks!

I received my Minelab X-Terra 50 about 18 months ago and it was easy to use from the first day! I have found coins where others were hunting just ahead of me and my wife. One man wanted to know what kind of detector it was and I offered to let him try it. In less than thirty minutes he found and dug a small pocket knife, a dime and a button.

He offered to buy the detector right there and was disapointed when I said no, but I told him where he could buy one and sent the address to him.

Later my wife and I met my brother and his wife in Myrtle Beach and we turned the women loose. It looked like the navy had used the beach for a bombing run! There were holes EVERYWHERE! They sure had a good time filling all the holes and all the things they found and lugged back home was a sight to see. Thank you for helping me choose the right metal detector!

I have been seriously detecting for about two years now. I've tried several detectors some of my detecting buddies use regularly from different manufacturers, liking some and hating others. I decided I preferred Minelab detectors for the depth of finds my friends have found and their glowing reviews of Minelab support. I also appreciated the feedback on some metal detecting forums I frequently read about Minelab products.

I borrowed a friend's Minelab Xterra 50 for an afternoon hunt at an old park. It took me a little getting use to the ground balance feature for optimum searching. After a little tutoring I was off to find treasure! I love the number id readout for different metals. I was about to find quite a bit of clad that first time out and a mercury dime also!
After buying my own Minelab Xterra 50 form Kellyco, I spent all my free time looking for treasure and getting use to my new detector. What a great new hobby! I found dozens of wheat pennies, several silver coins, and lots of lost jewelry including sterling silver rings and one 14K gold man's wedding ring!

About a year later I decided to purchase the 10" DD coil for my Xterrra 50 from Kellyco. What a great investment for increased finds! I started to find deeper coins including one wheat penny I dug at 10" down.

I guess you can say I am extremely happy with my purchase of the Minelab Xterra 50. It is an easy machine to use. Battery life is great--4 AA batteries last me about 40 hours easily.
Finding coins-and identifying them before I dig-is easy with the very accurate -9 to 45 #id.
A great detector for a great price. You got to try one!!

The Minelab X-Terra 50 was my first metal detector that has a display and different audio sounds. The weather hasn't permitted me to do a lot of detecting lately, but the few times I have been out I have been surprised and exited with X-50. I will mention one outing that was fun. I went to a friend's house that I have "hunted out" and had only a limited amount of time. I came away after 15 minutes with a nickel and two penny's. My instincts were correct in that there was a least one nickel that I didn't find. I have never really bothered searching for them. However, with the X-50, you don't have to miss them as a nickel seems to ALWAYS read a 12 on the read-out.

One of the pennies that I found indicated a depth of 8 inches. Sure enough, I quickly recovered a 1916 Wheatie. This in an area I (and I alone) had searched many times.

I'm still getting use to all the features on the X-50 and look forward to seeing what else it can do.
