    I have had problems in my area since the soil is loaded with small hot rocks, very rocky underneath the soil. the 800 sees everything and reacts with a lot of chattery noise. I have noise cancelled, ground balanced, reduced sensitivity to 17-18 (afraid to go lower), changed frequencies. I’m not sure of what else to do. I use the Field 1 mode mostly.

    Great review! If you wouldn’t mind clarifying why this is not a good first detector? Is it based on cost? May I ask what you see as a better first detector under a grand
    Thanks!

      Hi! Yep, the point is the cost of this unit. Most of the new detectorists just buy a first detector which has to be cheap, because if they will understand that this is not a good hobby for them – it would be faster to sell. Just ordering the unit about $900+ is not the wise idea to start this hobby. But, if you have a friends-detectorists, who can help you with this detector and will also explain to you a lot about our hobby and assist/help you – then why not?

      As a first detector, there are good Garrett ACE series or Fisher F series models.

    I near to buy a new MD to find “coins”, what you suggest from NOX800 and DEUS?

    • Detectorist says:

      If you are an experienced user you can choose between Deus a Nox. Both are great detectors! Nox is better for beach detecting, Deus is better for small and tiny coins, depends on your area and type of detecting. There is no universal detector for all applications on a market.
