Either you simply havent read all the posts you are talking about or you are trolling.
there are lots of solid facts about the detector, we just don't have comparison and anecdotal information.
those are NOT "independent testers", they are product development testers who volunteer their time. It's not being given a machine and told to go have fun and tell them what you thought. Its more like a job, they have to test specific aspects and functions in specific conditions. They may even have multiple version of a machine to compare head to head. Bottom line, they arent testing these to tell US anything.

"lots of deleted messages", now that is pure trolling. I am on most detector forums and the only posts I have seen deleted are from trolls simply trying to create problems. Apparently you dont understand the difference of discussing pros and cons of items verses people who just come on to bash a detector, a person, or a company. Or maybe you DO understand and you are posting that anyway????

- the whole idea of a having a forum for a detector that does not actually exist is crazy.
-There are no solid facts here about the new nox detector at all.
You are totally right.

Here is what I see:
- a big marketing plan for social networks, forums, youtube etc, with 'free' thousands of pages open for an unknown/ not released product.
- 'independent testers' presented no real tests, not real results, only promoting the miracle product, including their pre-order for it and their act of selling other brands.
- a lot of deleted messages of persons who din't praise the miracle product.

I have two questions:
1. Is it a market manipulation or is it legal/moral that 'independent testers' to promote in this way an unknown product, not launched on the market ?
2. What if 'independent testers' are on the payroll of the producer, or if they are receiving products, trips, money - 'for free', 'for test', as 'a gift' ?


In 2-3 weeks after launch I'll do a complete real test with this product and a comparison with other detectors in different soils. I'll measure their multi-'secret frequencies'.
If the product real 'obsolete' all the others as they said, I'll buy one; if not, I will inform MD' communities about its real results.

Good post at the top of the page, Jason. Wish we had Like Buttons here.

I wonder how many of the troll/disruptive posts are done by individuals actually employed by competing companies. Or is it just jealous people that wish they could afford or wish they would have waited on the Eq but bought something else. I hate to think that some people just hate life so much that they spend theirs trying to sew discord.





Banned this clown for calling Windy City a crook in detector sales and from pm he sent me.

Its funny (sad actually), when a company says a new detector is coming months from now, theres no shortage of people complaining about why it was revealed so far in advance. If the company waits until right before release to reveal it then people complain because they "just bought xxx detector and would have waited if they knew sooner"

And yes, there are plenty of people who spent all their times just trying to create drama.

While I agree it's "damned if you do, damned if you don't" type situation, I think a hybrid would be a better solution. Lets say the announce a detector 1 month before release but they let everyone know at the time of the release THE DATE WHICH IT WILL BE AVAILABLE! Not a lot to ask for. It isn't hard or rocket science. Other companies do that with movies, video games, and even cell phones.

And if someone is going to use the argument "Well, they needed to have people test it blah blah blah", well I call BS on that. They had years to test according to the patients.

I think they had all intentions of a December release. Lots of dealers were saying they had been told to expect it. I think they ran into problems somewhere, whether it was components, workers, QC, shipping, we can only guess. I think this was also the reason they didnt give a hard date; they knew something could go wrong.

I am very appreciative for the slight delay, they've saved me about 2 months of Warranty that I would've lost to bench testing since I live in the snow belt. :biggrin:

Jason darling, you are right, I am trolling, I already have 3 messages posted!
The second bottom line: Minelab launched 6 month ago Gold Monster 1000. They told it is excellent in trash and mineralization soils. Well, I tested it a week, my conclusion: it is worthless in these soils... so...

What if Equinox will be the same? (regarding what is said and what is doing for real)
