    "Very cool works great...This pointer is a good value for the money....I used it outside works very good for what I'm using it for as a pinpointer for metal detecting...It works OK, but the led is hard to see in daylight, also the vibration is not very aggressive-and it's worst point is there are no adjustments."

    "Love it...Not bad...So I purchased the $300 Escort X80 and was nothing but disappointed, both in the app that's an annoying money grab with four or five "no thanks" prompts I've to click past to avoid upgrading to the paid premium junk before it would even link up, and then things it should do like be able to let me mark something as a false positive, it failed to do....This seems to be a good detector but kind of hard to pin point whether it is working or not, but it does seem to work still trying to figure it out."
