    First I Want To Say...YOU, Sound Like A Great Husband!! She Sounds Like A Great Wife! Good on ya for taking the time to ask people who have First Hand experience!

    My thought process might be a tad different but...No Matter What Equipment Anyone Uses In Life...Car/Truck/SUV...3 on the tree, Granny Low vs 6speed on the floor and AWD vs RWD or 4x4- Boat..Outboard vs Inboard (remembering the blower) vs Dual Engine...learning to use one or the other to turn in tight places and slide up to the dock- Gun...Revolver vs Pistol or Automatic vs Semi Auto vs Pump-Fishing Reel....Zebco 33 vs Ambassador 5000c Open Face..Remembering to put your thumb on the reel to prevent Overwind-Cell Phone...Flip Phone vs IPhone 7-Computer...Apple vs HP. You get the idea. IF you have NOTHING To Compare To.... You quickly and automatically learn THAT First Piece Of Equipment.
    Metal Detectors...It's when you Change Detectors that you have that learning curve of different readings and sounds. I Love My Whites DFX! But I want to MD in water too. I'm not getting rid of the DFX so I have to get a Water Proof Detector. I asked A lot of people, even Tnet members for their advice. I primarily would be Fresh Water, But when I travel I want to be able to also use it in Salt Water, Beach and Dry Land. I, like you am not price shopping...I just want to get One Unit that I can learn in water and not worry if I slipped and ruined the motherboard of the DFX. I've gotten great opinions on what would be best for my wants. My opinion is that No Matter which unit you choose, make sure that Manufacturer has other units for different needs or accessories that can accommodate your machine. Your wife sounds determined and smart so don't worry about settings...she can learn them fast. Not knowing her age, strength or stamina...weight may or may not be an issue. I know I didn't Answer your question as asked but her not having any experience in MDing or worrying about cost is a Plus for her. Get a good multi-use unit no matter how 'complicated' it may seem. It will be all she knows. Good Luck to Both of You! This is a Great Place for Opinions and Advice! Looking forward to hearing about all of her finds!

    The OP hasn't been bothered to check back in over a year. I doubt anyone will be hearing of his wife's finds.

    XP Deus. I think the options, fit, and weight are a good choice. For a beginner, there are quite a few automatic setting to chose from to get going right at the start. It adjusts very easy for storage and use. The unit charges with a USB connector, so charging in the car, or with standard aux batteries is easy in the field. There are many dedicated users groups online for advice and to share stories.
    Add to that, a hell of a detector!

    SO TOO was the same logic promoted back in the days when the Spectrum and XLT were all the rage (1990s): Veterans would still consider them to be equally beginner machines, because "all you have to do is use the pre-sets and don't mess with the advanced settings".

    On the surface, this sounds totally logical. But in my experience, hardly any beginners can resist fiddling around with the controls "lest they be missing out" ! Doh!

    Example: There was a beginner at our club meeting who complained of not being able to figure out the XLT. So one day I agreed to meet up with him and help him out. I took a look at his controls, and he had them ALL "maxed out". I asked him "why'd you do that?", and he said "because I didn't want to miss anything". Because in his mind's eyes, the default stock settings would be like riding bumper cars at the carnival, rather than real driving, and he was certain he'd be "missing out" if he didn't go in and fiddle with the "adult" options. I saw this same scenario play out with multiple others, so I assume it would play out for the CTX as well.
    I always used my xlt in the pre-set modes , & just got used to it / learned it that way over many years .
    I only used the back-light, Volume , Bottle-Cap Reject & the BCR was in the last 2 years.

    I could have changed it up but 'I did not want to mess with "What I Knew"'.

    Don't get me wrong , some fine tuning would have been great at times, but still was able to 95% say imo what the target was.

    For the OP , Any Decent detector would work great at a Site like yr talking about ,' Used XLT $250 + or a $2.000 Minelab.

    Research (as you are) , fig, $ to spend , and know it can be some work finding good stuff./ Not like on TV or most You-Tube.

    IMO Even a Garrett Ace 200-Or 400. Would 'do y'all good'

    Like Tom said it's all about learning & knowing yr Machine.

    Maybe he got her a complicated detector & she lost interest , or was not happy finding $10 Barbers , $25 seated , & 50 cent Indians.

    You got to love history , & the thrill of the hunt.

    IMO It takes a certain 'personality ' to start & Keep detecting , or be lucky enough to live in Hawaii , Untouched 1600-1800's land, un-hunted Civil War camps.

    I need a time machine.

    "Ford ,Chevy, or Dodge.
