The top positive review was this one :
Good to know that this isn’t a ripoff like other websites selling fake metal detectors. Gmt came in, everything you need to know to start is in the manual, easy to assemble! Really great detector! Have found many coins and rings in parks already! Planning some trips to GPAA claims to find some gold nuggets! Works great, I really appreciate the battery life of 40+hours! Really great detector for beginners and for serious detecting!
The top critical review was the following:
The GMT is a great detector. And…..it dosen’t look like the rest of this review was posted. I can see why it wasn’t that helpful to people…..lol The reason I only gave it 2 stars is simple. Most people want a detector they can easily pinpoint targets with. The GMT does not have this capability. There IS NO PINPOINTING CIRCUIT on the machine. To locate small nuggets or coins you must dig the general area, then detect hands full of dirt or put the dirt in a plastic gold pan to find the target. Finding a very small flake of gold is almost impossible. I compare this machine to a $829 hunting rifle with no sights. You wouldn’t buy a gun like that, so why would you buy a detector not capable of pinpointing? Its not that Whites couldn’t have put a pinpointing circuit into this machine…..they just didn’t. Their old goldmasters had pinpointing, as did all of their Coinmasters. I used a Goldmaster 2 for years to find gold and it pinpointed targets precisely everytime. I even used it to coin hunt in parks with great success. But can you imagine the park people seeing you digging a large hole while using the GMT without pinpointing capabilities? Anyway, the GMT is great for prospecting for larger nuggets but forget it for anything else! What were you thinking Whites???
