Make sure to check out our real world price comparison: Minelab GPX4000 vs. SD2100
So far, we don’t know much, other than the press release which was posted on Doc’s forum last night. According to that release, this is not an upgrade to previous GP model detectors and we can expect to see a “new class of gold detector”.
That makes me wonder, is this a PI machine? Maybe it’s just a new class of PI machine.
Apparently we should expect to see digital presets and an LCD display which is of course very different than what we have seen from previous Minelab gold machines. The basic stats read in such a way as to indicate that it will definitely be a different look and operating mode than the previous models. From what I understand, the machines will look nothing like previous SD or GP detectors. So far nothing appears on Minelab’s website.
The machines are going to start hitting stateside by the end of October 2006.
I can’t wait to hear the reviews from experienced prospectors not associated with dealers. I’m sure it won’t take long.
