    If you are "stuck" at a budget limit of $150, I would try to find an Ace 250 trade in or reconditioned unit. I would not recommend going for a new MD in that price range. There are some on Ebay and other places for that price and I just don't think they would rise to the level of performance of the 250.

    Just my 2 cents.

    That's the price of the ACE 150.Not much difference between that and the 250.

    I would go with the Ace 250 its a little more but if you don't bite the bullet and get it you will regret it and get all fubar over the machine you ended up with.

    Morning,

    I believe that a "Good Metal Detector for $150" is an oxymoron.

    Detectors below $200 are usually very disappointing to the user. I agree about the ACE 250, good machine, good company, good price, easy to use.

    Save another $100.00 and get the Ace 250 from Tony with some some extras.

    Keep @ it and HH!!

    Harbor Freight has some metal detectors for $19.99! You could get six or seven with enough left to buy a shovel and apron! Anyone ever use the TITAN XD 1000? They are $150 at KellyCo if you ask for that price, plus usual goodies. Got one for a relative and all I know is it makes a good doorstop. They have not used it yet.

    Re: can someone suggest a good MD for around $150

    I would attempt to go for the extra 100 or so....but at my current rate the only time im gonna have any extra cash to be able to get one is when i get the extra paycheck......which only happens every 6 months next month being the next time. I live with my fiance and together we pull in enough cash to survive.....if u can call it that =(....thanks for all the input though....i may have to hit ebay after all =\

    Re: can someone suggest a good MD for around $150

    here's how you get a good detector for $150.... Save the extra $60 and get an Ace 250 for $210.

    Unless you find a used one (which many people shy away from), you're not going to find a good detector for under $200 bucks. Don't waste your time with a radio shack special. If you do, you'll either end up 1. hating the hobby, and sticking your $150 detector in the closet (waste of money), or 2. realize that the detector isn't cutting it, and end up spending another $250 for the Ace anyway.

    Buy a decent used detector of one of the classified forums. Some of the older units can be had for a song and will still kick butt. I picked up an X-100 Challenger for around that price and it will give $1000 units a run for their money. ..Willy.
