WHICH ONE IS THE BEST DETECTOR?

"ALL ARTICLES IN THIS SECTION ARE FOR INFORMATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY AND THEY ARE WRITTEN IN A WAY THE READERS CAN UNDERSTAND THE BEST. "

We had noted that there is a multitude of detectors. Not only do the detectors, but also the conditions of the terrain and the search, as well as the type of objects searched vary. These differences lead to an emphasis on different features in different detectors. Yet, the "Best Detector" is a title that gets to be awarded on the basis of requirements. It is imperative to choose the correct detector for the task.

For instance, a treasure scanner would not be ideal to search gold nugget in a mineral-rich environment. Indeed, the treasure scanners are built to spot larger masses buried deeper, instead of smaller metals lying close to the surface. This approach helps the user to screen and ignore the deceptive signals from small metal objects close to the surface.

For the "Treasure Scanner" is all about finding large targets buried deep. High-end Treasure Scanners can detect gaps and metals. Yet they are less sensitive with respect to smaller objects. The purpose of Treasure Detectors is to detect much larger objects. On the other hand, "Gold Detector" is sensitive for much smaller pieces of metals, and most importantly for gold. Its design principles aim to achieve highest sensitivity for smaller objects. It is capable of detecting all precious metals and gold which the treasure detector may not be able to spot.

On the other hand, "Single Coin and Hobby" detectors provide better results in low to medium depth levels, and work best in spotting coins or various metal objects (gold, silver, copper) scattered around. Some models make use of advanced technology to make it more adaptive to the mineral structure of the soil. They may also be equipped with water-resistant coils allowing use in marine, river, and beach environments. They are used with pleasure by many users.

Therefore, it is not possible to talk about "the best" among the options of Treasure Scanners, Gold Detectors, or Hobby and Single Coin Detectors. As each serves to a distinct purpose, it is not a good idea to compare these technologies against each other to find a "best".

It is clear that the use cases and features of these distinctive devices cannot be combined. Therefore, it is not possible to talk about "The Best Detector". Yet, another question may then arise: Is there a "best" among the detectors in a single category? The answer would lie with the final consumer, the person to use the detector.

It is not fair to compare detectors built for distinct purposes. The detectors in the market vary by technology, intended depth, stability, ergonomics, total weight, price, support, warranty, and brand name. The consumer will have to make a choice on the basis of these variables, and will have to judge the performance received from the device.

One should not forget that an experienced user may achieve unexpected results with a run-off-the-mill device. In the same vein, an inexperienced user may be unable to get accurate results even with the highest-end detectors. The parameters that define the level of satisfaction of the consumer include past experiences, and a better knowledge of the detector.
