I know everyone has there favorites, I have been out of the LOOP for a while. I would like to start again. When I was active in the hunt I used Whites, just looking for suggestions. Thank you in advance. Not sure it matters but I live in western pa.

the best detector is the one you can afford and will actually use.
These companies have solid detectors: Minelab, Garrett, Fisher, Nokta, and XP.
here's a simple sample link:
My best and deepest finds have been with Minelab, so that's what I'd recommend. Others think it's XP. Pretty much opinions. Ya know like the beer commercial - tastes great/less filling or some such. Good luck!

These were found with Minelab - some at 12" deep.

If possible, head to a local dealer with a brick and mortar shop. The dealers really are amazing and can help you find exactly what would suit you best.

The best all around detector is one you understand completely and can use it. One that good for one person might be terrible for another person
