Gold Metal Detector Reviews – Ignore Manufacturer’s Websites
Many makers of metal detecting equipment will put up a separate website or blog and then call it something like Gold Metal Detector Review.com. Although it may look like an independently written website, it’s usually a marketing tool by the manufacturer. When you look at a gold metal detector review site, look to see if it has any sponsors or read all of the small print on the “About Us” page. Many will blatantly say which manufacturer they work for.
Gold Metal Detector Reviews On Individual Websites
Many people into the hobby of metal detecting will put up their own gold metal detector reviews on their personal web pages. They are not shy of expressing how they really feel about anything in the metal detecting hobby, from advocating for cleaner beaches to help make the hobby safer or nitpicking the latest Gold Series metal detector.

This is one of the big advantages of joining a club before you make the big investment of purchasing equipment. Also, you might discover that some of the members have gently used equipment for sale.
What About Consumer Gold Metal Detector Reports?
In America, the venerable magazine “Consumer Reports” is the epitome of unbiased product comparisons. They generally review any class of objects under the sun, but sadly, they have not done a gold metal detector review issue. Unfortunately, the hobby is still considered too obscure for the average “Consumer Reports” reader who may never even think of buying a metal detector.
There are consumer written ratings websites like NextTag and BizRate that do have places where the general public can write their own gold metal detector reviews. You do have to keep in mind that some people in the general public are a little more truthful than others. A product with lots of favorable reviews is worth checking out.
