JP.

now that Iv purchased my own QED unit and had time for some testing and a general play... why have you made it sound so confusing to operate?

its made me actually concerned wondering why you even bothered to do a review on the QED to begin with?

your dead right tho' it's pretty good with small coils, but also impressive with larger ones too...

Instead of worrying about JPs motives how about doing your own review instead Luke? JP offered his opinions and they are welcome. Your opinions on the QED are welcome also.

If you do so I will be as excited by people casting aspersions on your motives as I am with you casting aspersions on JPs. Anybody is free to offer opinions and reviews on this forum without having motivations questioned by other forum members.

Frankly, where you see negatives I saw a fairly positive and informative review from JP that helped legitimize the QED at a time when the information available from other sources was nil to none.

That's a great report JP, and you pointed out the glass is half full with this machine with it have so many possibilities and it does so much when you take in to account the price point, and to find Gold in an area that has been well used is saying a lot, Nothing is ever going to match certain well known machines, But the QED seems to offer the best bang for the buck along with giving less well versed people a chance to get in the thick of it.  

It seems like the QED is the perfect machine for someone who is just getting in to the hobby or on a limited budget, This hobby needs more machines like this to cater for the young and old as well,

thanks again,

John.

Interesting report JP,

I personally haven't seen or used one yet, but the test results were very impressive I must admit, and also love the price!!  

But reading the first quarter to half of the report made it sound like a Very involved and complicated machine to get use too and sorted out for whatever ground and conditions you happened to be working in at the time.

And because of the price I'm guessing newbies that can't afford a $3500 PI detector and want to get into the gold side of detecting may buy it but find it very confusing/ confronting to get it running correctly/ smoothly and be put off by it.

But once you've got it dialled in it sounds like a very sensitive capable and powerful machine! and also the added bonus of being lighter to swing all day for those of us that ain't as young as we use to be or have bad shoulders like myself!.

look forward to seeing a few videos in the near future of this machine in action.

Cheers

Well, to be honest, try to describe anything in detail in writing and it can come across as complicated. For instance, describe in detail how to know which settings are best on a GPX 5000 under different conditions. I can tie my shoes without thinking but to write down the steps involved can make it sound intimidating. It's somewhat inherent in the medium if you want to be sure the information is detailed and complete.

It is a shame that Dave Emery's Pulse Devil project did not reach the market as some of his work is incorporated within the QED.

To JP's credit It was good to read in the "New Detectors And Early Adopters" thread that he still has the QED in his detector  collection which he used for his QED Review test report thread here.

There has been good test reviews on the ProspectingOz forum by other QED users after having the QED's latest update added to the QED.

Therefore it would be good to have someone of JP's profile and experience to perform another QED Review if Jonathan's QED has now been updated and read of the differences in performance after the QED updates as what happened after the GPZ updates.
