Top marks for the CSI 250


from Nevada City, CA

As a team of volunteers who assist a law enforcement agency in searching for evidence, we have come to rely on the CSI 250's. We have 5 of them and with their ability to sense the type of metal and bury depths, they are invaluable in locating buried weapons and shell casings. Their variable sensitivity helps in understanding the potential size of objects.. To date we have had no problems with them and highly recommend them.


Great product


from Jensen Beach, Fla.  -  Beginner

As a first time enthusiast, my plan was to use this only at the beach, while on vacation. After using it ( easy to operate and get the hang of it)... I can think of numerous other applications for use at home. Pros: *Great price *Came with batteries. *Easy to operate. *Came with awesome set of headphones... Better quality than was expected. *Delivery fast ( 3 work days from New York to Florida). Cons: *Heavier than I said 2.7 lbs....... Don't think so! *Bag that came with it was only a very light weight small gym bag...I thought "carry bag" meant the long one that you cover and carry your unit in.
