I picked up a Whites spectrum xlt a little while ago, I have been wanting to try one of these for a while. They have been making them for over 10 years. The spectrum came out first and then they changed the decals alittle and gave the screen some more pixels and thats what they call the Whites spectrum E series. So I’m pretty sure they are just about the same. Well There are many books on setting up and using this machine. I went on the net a printed out a few different programs and then fine tuned them to my liking. Ok so this detector has many settings, at first it may be a little overkill. But I went on youtube and watched some video’s that whites put out. I think there are 10 different video from part one to ten. They were very helpfull on understanding the machine, and there are other video that are very helpfull on youtube. I went to the nearest park after watching 3 hours worth of video’s. Fustrated at first, I figured out what settings fit my style and I was off find coins in no time. I did find a 1907 indian head penny at around 7″ deep with a good solid signal. Trash items were easy to identify using the signagraph display, but I did dig a 1957 nickel and it was a funk signal at around 6″ it was a solid signal beep wise but on the signagraph it was jumpy on the bars. This detector will have no prolbem finding a large cent at 8″ or deeper. I like trying out all different settings it was fun. It is balanced very well, seems to be rugged and think if you can get one of these detectors for the $450 or cheaper its a great buy. I would pay more then $450 if it was a newer model or an older model with acceceroies like coils and case. This detector does take some time to get used to it and there is a learning curve but its worth it. I like the pinpoint trigger and all the features it has to adjust the pinpoint sound and sensitivity for the pinpoint.
