The build quality of the old metal box machines are about as good as it gets,the later MX-S and MX-5 machines just dont do it for me,doubt that i will buy another Whites machine though as the current line up as mentioned above will last me many more years,the quality has dropped off in recent years i feel but the technical support from Scotland has been the best ever.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who loves the old metal box design. XL Pro, MXT, etc. I've felt the balance and build of the newer detectors, and the metal box designs have the best build quality, hands down. They beat any other brand too in the build quality department. And the later SL small box are not that heavy and balance perfectly, especially with the right coil. On my XL Pro, that would be the 8" concentric. I wish White's would put more development into these detectors. V3i Pro?

White's customer service is just superb. Good to hear that goes for service over the pond too.

Current detectors: Minelab Equinox, White's V3i, MXT, XL Pro
Past: Minelab CTX 3030, White's XLT, 6000D Series 3, Coinmaster 2DB, Fisher Gold Bug Pro

Very Very Nice Collection! Most certainly, you are not the only one with a formidable collection of the large circuit board beauties. I took out the Eagle Spectrum this weekend and pulled a nice 1964 dime that was in area I thought was pretty clean already. :smile:

As a longtime Whites fan and user I have built up a small collection as well. Mine are mostly early versions of the chipped detectors. They are 6000 di series 3, eagle 2 sl 90, eagle spectrum, QXT, XLT, and DFX. Must say my favorite is the Eagle 2 sl 90.
