I have a 32 year old White's Eagle Spectrum and it still works as good as the day I bought it. The Eagle Spectrum XLT is the top of the line White's, and it's also very expensive ($850 or so), but it is one of the best. Mine Labs (Australian made) is also very expensive but very good. Check both White's and Mine Labs as they make affordable detectors. As stated above, once you learn to properly use your detector, if you get one, it's very addictive. You just have to be very careful where you hunt. Most federal parks and recreation areas ban the use of detectors.
