Some software and hardware updates now available for the QED.More  QED firmware updates (inc Auto GB  option) just announced here. New  QED hardware updates/options and pictures will be posted  first here  as they become available.

Another satisfied QED user! QED user report for 9 days detecting! User loves it, found it easy to use,found gold with it and he prefers it to his 5000! Also a report on a QED used at the beach for coin shooting.QED users reporting in with their multi ounce gold finds with the QED!
From  another QED user today:"Been out and about today testing and comparing against other machines etc in ground that has been horrible in the past.Bround balancing Ive found very simple and easy.'m using the Nokia booster but need a little more sound/threshold.Otherwise no complaints from me, very impressed."
and :"My QED with the 8” commander on it, out performed my SDC Got bits that don't register on my scales SDC has since been sold"
"My QED is terrific. Lightweight, very sensitive and screams at me when it hits any target. The Detect shaft and the 11" ultra sensing coil is a top quality fitout. I attached an external speaker which added under 200gms of weight in total and still remains very well balanced so i never feel fatigued after many hours of swinging."

Stinky  Pete :http://www.detech-metaldetectorsaustralia.com.au/ is the  Australian distributor for the QED.
This is the only forum where you can talk directly with the designer/ manufacturer of the QED and  also some very experienced QED users.
Jrbeatty and Reg Wilson  and  Yellowfin  (or Doug here for that matter!)have NO vested  or pecuniary interests(or secret deals or cash for comment or any other undisclosed benefits )in the QED other than using it to find gold which it is doing very successfully! The ONLY people deriving  an income from the QED(other than finding good gold) are the approved retailer and Bugwhiskers! The ONLY investor in the QED is Bugwhiskers!
I have never met Jrbeatty or Reg Wilson at Howards house or ANY other location!

It was back in 2004 that I had my first detecting trip to the Golden Triangle in Victoria and unbeknown to me at that time after I paid for my Miners Right it was the 150th Anniversary year of the Eureka Rebellion.

It was not until later in that year of 2004 and too my surprise and joy that I received in the post a special 1854 EUREKA 150 MINERS RIGHT 2004 certificate.

Therefore bugwhiskers on this, as you say the 162nd Anniversary, congratulations also.

They are not being mass produced in a factory. Each one uses a commercially made PCB but the soldering of the many parts is all done by hand. I am hoping there is no mad rush of orders leaving people disgruntled.

Perhaps IF “they" give JP a QED to test, as Robby H suggests, "they" will also provide him with a suitable NDA to sign. One with clause "Praise the product BUT don’t discuss anything negative about it with competitors"!

I'm unsure that JP as a competitor's tester & promoter can be trusted to be unbiased with the QED. There have been years of negative emotion associated with it from critics who knew nothing about it.

Interestingly, I wonder if there is a tag / disclaimer inside saying  "The QED contains NO patented or protected IP”.

The hand assembly / soldering should ensure better QC.  smile

I forgot to mention. Each board is calibrated to ensure correct battery voltage reading and the bias adjustment and TX voltage adjust. This is followed by a "burn in" of about 2 hours and also a tapping test to see if there are any bad joints.
Has anybody noticed that the first model is called PL. Who wants to have a guess why?

My guess this model is in memory & respect for Peter Lalor (PL)

As a Eureka hero & leader Peter Lalor, in later life was Speaker of the House in the Legislative Assembly of Victoria. The symbolism with & the fight for the QED is not lost on most members here esp. PL's comments needing to take action to defend the beliefs of true believers (in social justice) & the injustice of not having $$$ to counter-attack the attackers… as it is so richly phrased below.

"Following the battle, rebel leader, Irish Australian Peter Lalor, wrote .. to the colonists of Victoria, "There are two things connected with the late outbreak (Eureka) which I deeply regret. The first is, that we shouldn't have been forced to take up arms at all; and the second is, that when we were compelled to take the field in our own defence, we were unable (through want of arms, ammunition and a little organisation) to inflict on the real authors of the outbreak the punishment they so richly deserved"... (Wiki - Eureka Rebellion)

The box is not submersible or rain proof.

 One thing that BW has not yet mentioned is that the QED is designed only to use  mono coils.

 BW at some stage could you go through and explain all the QED menu options  and how they are used.eg how do you optimize the settings for different mono coils eg for those of us that have older and perhaps slower coils.

Some people expect a lot!
"--- QED control box is not even rain proof"
None of the ML SD,GP,GPX control boxes are rain proof either!!!! Weather proof control boxes and plugs would add dramatically to the price of the QED.
As for pricing that is not yet sorted out but i believe that the QED with NF 12"  coil will retail for substantially less than the cheapest TDI.
Field testing has shown that the QED will outperform the TDI for depth and sensitivity on gold.

I have been watching this for the past few years with great interest and finally, It is here. :) :)
I will be making inquiries as to whether I can just purchase the control box as I have an arsenal of coils and shafts.
This is going to be very interesting.
Congratulations on bringing your project to fruition.

The QED circuit is remarkably  robust.I will  let BW tell you some of the horrendous things he has done to  try and blow up or destroy the QED circuit. eg plugging and unplugging coils while the detector is running!
