The White's XLT metal detector was introduced in 1994 as the Spectrum XLT. It was cosmetically refashioned as the XLT E-Series in 2001 and finally discontinued in 2010. The XLT is a 6.59 kHz VLF metal detector aimed primarily at coin, jewelry, and relic detecting.

"XLT® is high-performance simplicity and versatility at it’s best. High tech treasure hunting is as easy as turning on the XLT® and selecting a Turn-on and Go! program. With 5 expertly-designed programs to choose from, you’ve got virtually every kind of hunting covered. It’s easy to enhance a program, too, for your particular hunting with one of 10 Basic Adjustments or even a Professional Option. Completely automatic or totally adjustable!"

There’s a reason why many people still swing this detector and seek it out. This is a solid, well behaved machine with remarkably stable target ID. It’s a pleasure to hunt with. The SignaGraph is a useful tool that I wish today’s machines utilized. This machine is packed with features to customize search and performance patterns, yet it is simple and stable enough in factory settings that it could be handed off to a beginner. For such a remarkably stable machine it is able to detect targets at a pretty respectable depth. If you are an arsenal detectorist this is a nice addition to your collection, or if you’re new and simply want something that just works to learn and grow on, this is great. Just start from factory presets and work out from there. One piece of advice I would pass on though is look for a model near the end of production. These machines last and are still around, but the oldest models are now beginning to break down and fade at 25 years old, particularly LCD failure. If you can find one in that 2005-2010 span it should have plenty of life left in it. And as with any older whites detector be sure to check the battery compartment on any, but especially those claiming very little use or “closet queens.” This can be good as long as it wasn’t stored with a leaking battery pack. Check for corrosion hiding in the battery compartment.
