I just recently purchased a Quest x5 and I am excited. I have not taken it in the field yet(hopefully this weekend) but I am already in love. Set up was easy and I think the features that this detector offers at this price point is amazing. I am relatively new to metal detecting but I own 2 other detectors. The very first detector I bought was a Harbor Freight 9 function detector. This detector is a copy of the Bounty Hunter Tracker II and I think works exceptionally well for what it is. It is a "beep and dig" detector but has good discrimination and is a coin finding demon. It does not have great depth but what do you expect for $45. At any rate, I was bit by the metal detecting bug. The next detector I bought was a Bounty Hunter Tracker Pro. This is the same detector as the Lone Star Pro with a blue face plate and a 7"coil versus the 8" coil of the Lone Star Pro. It's OK and is not a bad detector but to be honest I like using the HF9F more. I only paid $43 for it when Jet.com had a sale on them. If you haven't noticed I am frugal(some would say cheap). As in other hobbies, everyone has their own opinion and experiences and that's great because we get to share. The x5 is my first"major" investment and I am looking forward to using the X5 and sharing.
