Have White MX Sport Problems Been Fixed?

23 posts in this topic

Hi there, new member here :smile:, First off all, English is not my 1st language, learnt it through online gaming and professor google translator.

OK I'm from Malaysia and I would like to buy the MX sports. After doing some research, its seems that the detector has some problem that need to be rectify via sending back to factory. This will be a problem for me if I needed to send the detector back to US, money and time wise. I read from various, sites and forum that some of the detectors are going great but some or not due to the software and crack issues. 

In other word, Is there any guarantee that I will get the latest version of the detector if I buy now or should I wait?

Hope forumers understand on what I'm talking about. I try to explain more as best as I could if needed. Thank you in advance.

HH to all

Welcome to the forum.

The only way I know to be sure you are getting the latest version of the MX Sport is to buy one direct from the factory. People appear to be happy with the latest version. Buying a used MX Sport could easily get you one with problems that would require a return to the factory. Even buying one from a dealer could present a problem since you have no idea how long the dealer has had the unit on the shelf.

Hi Fishersari

 Steve told you what's best on buying MX Sport and I'll tell you what a great buy you're going to make.

I see you be the lucky one being you didn't have to ride the trouble out like I and others did. I have all three coils White's make for the MX Sport and everyone was talking about how great Detech coils are on the MXS. Well it wasn't but one way I'd ever know so I put money down for the 7 in.DD coil.

I don't know if you remember when you were a kid and you'd get a new toy but get sick about the same time. The kid is bigger now but it still happen about the same time my Detech coil came in. I really after all that waiting just got out to hunt this old place that I'd call trash city and yet my MX Sport picked out three coins among all that trash. I found this little 7 in.DD coil has great depth and does a great job in a high trash area.

I could sit here telling you just how great the MX Sport is. But that would take all the fun of you finding out for yourself. I say one thing and that is you will have your first fun day when you buy it plus more to come as time goes by.

The Best to You

Chuck

Hi Steve and Chuck,

Thank you for the reply, In all my research to collect the good, the bad and the ugly of the MX sports, I followed your journey and Steve comment/review? on MX Sports very closely. At first its was 50-50 decision on to buy or not to buy the MX sports until chuck was satisfied with his MX Sport performance. Ill be contacting White to see either they doing international shipping and other things that need to be address before purchase. Thank you again :smile:

Hot Dog Tom you are on the ball ! You were always there when I was in need and I'm glad your here too for others when in need.

I think we have a one on one with more Detector Companies than other forums do.

I don't think I need to say more.

They are a brand new distributor - we have only shipped them the latest units.

The thing about forums is that people go to them when they have a problem. Then, when the problem is fixed, they are too busy enjoying the product to bother posting anything but finds...

Generally speaking "no news is good news" if people are buying your product and not returning it. But it is good to see solid reports from the field every once in a while. I keep my eye on the big MD forums, and the MX Sport is racking up a lot of kudos and finds. A quick search on findmall or other spots will show what I mean...

Shelton I don't speak Polish,but I do speak detectorspeak and I would agree with you that your MXS has a problem. With a display such as that one would not know anything except beep and dig. Hope you get it fixed.

      Tom,  one of my requirements for a fresh water detector is the ability to see targets under cold rocks.  I'm in the northern lower peninsula of Michigan where they are abundant in a few lakes and beaches around here.  DD coils usually take care of this but I need to be sure.
      Thanks

      The weather was a little warmer today so I decided to travel about 30 miles to the park where I've found lots of old coins. The area used to be used as a lakeside recreation park in the 1920's and has been very good very to me. I searched for a couple of hours hoping the MX Sport would pull some old coin that my XLT had missed.
      It seems that the MXS is intended to be swung a little slower than the XLT so I didn't cover as much ground as I'm normally would have. Maybe it was just me trying to pick through a lot of trash and isolate good signals. Anyway, two hours of searching resulted in one recently drop quarter and several really dip digs. After I took a short nap in my camper a fellow came along and asked if I was treasure hunting. He said he had an interest in old coins and showed me his 1964 JFK half dollar. He also pointed to place that he had found a 1927 buffalo nickel that washed out of a bank. He seemed like a nice enough guy although I suspected he was living out of his truck. I told him I had something he might like and went to my truck to get a 1934 buffalo nickel that was in my pouch. I gave it to him to add to his collection and he seemed to really appreciate the gift.
      After he left I went over to the area he showed me and after about 30 minutes found an Avery 925 silver ring. This was the first ring that I've found with the MXS and I was really excited. I had promised my wife some rings when the MXS arrived and now I was going to keep promise number one. You see, my house is like the White's commercial where the guy finds a ring and gives it to his wife. EVERYTHING that I find is offered to her and she takes whatever she likes. I know she going to like this one. By the way, when your wife is always wearing rings that you find they add greatly to the conversation whenever metal detecting comes up.
      Thank for looking and as always, H Digs!

      The DeTech 13" Ultimate is one of the nicer coils I have ever used, very light in weight for its size, and very good performance. White's now has a version available on their website at https://www.whiteselectronics.com/product/13-detech-ultimate-mx-sport-coil/ Part number 801-3263 $179.95 includes coil cover.

       
      This joins the 7" round DD coil made by DeTech that White's recently released for the MX Sport https://www.whiteselectronics.com/product/7-detech-mx-sport-coil/ Part number 801-3262 $149.95 includes coil cover.
