Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have bought this little machine for my grandson as he enjoys coming out with my son and me when we go detecting ourselves. Our machines are for the more advanced user. I decided to give this detector a real field test and it performed much better than i anticipated. I used my own detector first until i found a target then tried the L45BH and it picked up the target to a depth of 5" on a victorian halfpenny. I tried it repeatedly and it performed very well indeed. I think my grandson will be delighted with it on our next outing. For the price its a steal!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from For my 18th birthday I was given a fairly expensive gold signet ring by my grandmother however in my childish outburst of excitement for the recent snow and the desire to create a 'snow angel' I managed to lose it off my finger. I spent hours fumbling about in the ice cold snow to try and find it and gave up. A couple of days later I saw this and bought it headed back to the still deep snow and within 20 minutes of scanning the area I found my ring! Brilliant Item if you are planning to search for treasure! Works perfectly!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I haven’t been out with a metal detector for a long time and bought this as my first unit in a long time! The performance is very good overall. It will pick any thing up in all metal mode however if you adjust its discrimination setting you can make it avoid tin foil and pull rings. I found when trying to discriminate just for gold it would lose its sensitivity level however, having it set half way, gave a very good overall performance. In the two days of use i found Ј5, 20 old coins and a silver ring. So am very happy with its performance. It comes with a discrimination control, volume, and sensitivity however it does not ID your finds. The ear phone socket is on its back which gets in the way when in use, this would be better if it was on its front. Build quality fills a little weak but don’t let that put you off as its ok for the job and money you spend. Overall its a good unit very sharp in operation, I had a guy come over to me, talking about his unit and how much it cost him ЈЈЈЈЈ and when we compered its performance on a pound coin the l45Bh was better!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It did exactly what I wanted it to do, ie locate a drain cover under a gravel drive. It was easy to assemble and easy to operate and cheaper than hiring one for a weekend. The Grandchildren think its great and love to go "treasure hunting"

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Save your money and get a better machine Bought this detector to take on holiday because we were staying near a beach in Scotland. The last time I used a metal detector was in the 80s as a kid and I can say that machine was by far better built and worked better. I don't know much about the subject but I have used this a few times this week. Very flimsy and you get false reading if you touch the head on anything. The sensitivity gauge just seems to go to the max whatever you find. The target button has also stopped working after two days(seems to stick when you press it). In my opinion this machine is over priced. It does detect and we did find £3 in coins so this is why I have given 1 star

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not a bad detector for the price OK detector but the meter only ever goes 0 or 10 never any of the numbers between and this needs fixing. Headphone jack on the back should be in the middle on the front. No white lines on the markers of the knobs make it dificult to see where the knob is turned to

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Got this metal detector today and thought they had made a mistake and sent me a kids toy. Its construction is weak and has a wobble(up and down)at the joint,the screw tighten extending shaft for the coil is shoddy and is hard to tighten enough to keep it from falling off without turning it enough to turn the coil in the wrong direction and ontop of that when it arrived it was faulty and the sound cancels out in the first 3millo seconds and just leaves you with a clicking noise over a metal object! and worse still,any movement that is brisk makes the detector alert you of a detection and the needle flys around uncontrollably and unreadably which makes this model unusable in this state! fair enough that faults occur but even in a working condition this model is as flimsy as a piece of curtain rail(curtain rail being better) i know its cheap but for the price id say its overpriced but maplin still have a good response system and returns policy so i cannot fault them its just the makers of this cracker toy, oh and as i took it out the box i could already hear a loose object rattling around. sorry maplins but im being honest and i hope you sort this manufacturer out positive point is its weight thats it but seeing the construction im not suprised its light
