I'm just starting out on the path of metal detecting and have a Dario MD-3006SS VLF metal detector. I have used it a few times .. not found much just a few ring pulls and some scrap iron etc...oh and a florin (in my garden). But anyhow, does anyone else have one or ever used one. If so, how do you think it compares to other "beginners" detectors. 

Here are some specifications of it.
Frequency: 15KHz +- 2KHz
Sensitivity: min 16cm on a USc 25 test object.
Metal Differenciation Calibration:
   23mm dia Copper Coin
   20mm dia Gold Coin
   25mm dia Silver Coin

   Distance from the search coil surface: 80mm

Has the following functions;
  • Ferrous and non-ferrous indicators
  • Ground control
  • Discrimination adjuster
  • Sensitivity adjuster
  • Auto tune button
  • View Meter

When i can afford to upgrade (from my ?25 detector - Aldi Stores) what should i be looking for in a detector?

Thanks for your input    Detecting

Thank you for your response.  I'd forgotten I posted on here and should have announced my success when I did find the documentation.  I ended up finding a quick use guide here:

Nice going .. and thanks for the share ...    Clapp  Cool

I hope you find a lot of stuff with it and wish you success out in the field(s) (or where ever you plan on using it.) I've found tons of stuff with mine .. but nothing yet of any value.
My eyes have won me more valuable stuff.. ohh is that another 10p on the floor.. sweet  Grin Grin

.. oh one more thing ...  make sure you use headphones. you get a clearer sound when detecting stuff, so you can pick up on deeper and smaller items. Also, it saves your batteries loads, as using the loudspeaker eats them Shocked

Good luck and many happy hours of metal detecting  Detecting
